Default Thinking Outside the Box

If you owned a building (current business that occupies the building is closing) and Wal-Mart was opening its doors across the street in a previously unoccupied area (along with 12-14 small shops), what type of business would you start?

Here are the considerations:

1. Money is a non-factor
2. Building is fairly large (10,000) square feet
3. Building is on the corner of a busy intersection (about to get much busier)

Very much appreciate your time and consideration!

Default Re: Thinking Outside the Box

I think I would look to see exactly what sort of shops are looking to open and ensure I was directly competing with none, but instead looking to complement them.

I would also consider the potential of service vs products - for example, if there was a safe crossing area, I would personally consider chilcare for people wanting to spend time shopping by themselves as an option to explore the viability of.
