What Should Replace Louie's in Teaneck?

Walgreens could open at former diner property

Walgreens pharmacy has submitted a zoning application to open in the former Louie's diner location and two adjoining properties on Cedar Lane, officials confirmed to Patch last week. 

Details of the proposed drug store remained unclear as the zoning application has not been competed, but the pharmacy would be the third in the immediate area. Walgreens is eyeing a gas station next to Louie's and another vacant property next-door for the store, officials say. 

Louie's announced it would close days after the Cedar Lane Cinemas shut down, leaving many merchants wondering how the closures would impact other struggling businesses.

Sharon, I certainly understand that Teaneck has a wonderfully diverse population. The fact that Coffee Bean & Tea Leaf happens to be a kosher establishment is simply a net plus for the town as that segment that does keep kosher could buy there. Another pharmacy we don't need; a great coffee house that could attract business from the entire community would have a better chance at success. I hope that clarifies my statement.

How about expanding the Elie Katz museum

That is what you had and it didn't work. A coffee place like Coffee Bean and Teal Leaf could be open every day and still be Kosher.
