Vision for Vacancy: Former Blockbuster Video Building

The building in the Quentin Corners shopping mall at 780 W. Northwest Highway has been since January, 2010. What do you think would be the next best use for this property at the intersection of Northwest Highway and Quentin Road?

This week's Vision for Vacancy is the former Blockbuster Video building located at 780 W. Northwest Highway in the Quentin Corners shopping mall. 

Blockbuster had a fairly long run at the 4,800 square foot location, it opened in 1991 and closed its doors in 2010. 

In early October, a PeaPod Pick-up opened in the building adjacent to the vacant spot in the mall. 

Other businesses in the Quentin Corners mall include Salon Lorrene, Subway, Ben and Jerry's, Great American American Bagel and Baird and Warner. 

Prior to it being a Blockbuster Video, a Here's Hollywood video store was located in the building from 1989 until 1991.

If you are interested in this property or any others in the village, contact Deputy Village Manager Mike Jacobs at 847-359-9053

I think they did recently, no? One thing I have never seen is marketing from this place. I've probably driven by this place a thousand times and always considered it a bar with bar type food. If that is the case, than it doesn't offer anything unique. It's all about competition these days and offering something the others don't.

Why not get what others don't have Jack in the box, or an "In n out burger" if you want to attract customes to the area.

I wish they would find a good restaurant to replace Marlowe's/Anthem Grill - it is a great location on Euclid - but please no more bar and grills - can we get a good restauarant in the area again please.

How about a Mediterranean restaurant, like Pita Inn, or Pita Pita?
