If the new ACME is sold, maybe GIANT will move into that location. After all, there's no GIANT between Wynnewood and St. Davids.

Ditto on what Ted said. What about an eatery/food store with high end coffees and teas for consumption and retail, with a comfy spot to relax next to a bookshelf With all the space, some could be left for community things, farmers market, craft shows, Art exhibitions, etc
