Updated: What Should Go Here? Sportsman’s Warehouse

The building has been vacant for some time. What do you think would rejuvenate the space?

The outline from the sign is still there, but it’s been some time since fishing poles, ammo and tents were sold at the Sportsman’s Warehouse in Woodbury.

The Utah-based company closed the Woodbury location in 2009, along with two other stores in Minnesota.

So, what do you think should go there? Another outdoor-goods store? What about breaking up the space? What does that commercial area of Woodbury need?

Let us know what you think in the comments section below. (And if you have a suggestion for our next installment of What Should Go Here? email kris.janisch@patch.com.)

Calls and emails to the Minneapolis location of Cassidy Turley, a commercial real estate firm whose name and number is on the building, were not returned.

Here are some ideas from people on the Woodbury Patch Facebook page:

Sarah: Dave and Busters would be awesome!

Erik: Whole Foods or if it was big enough I would say Macys.

Emeigh: Dave and Busters!

Laurie: Whole Foods.

Tammy: Dave and Busters for sure!!!!

Matthew: Smoke shop...

Tracy: Tj Maxx

Colinda: Dave and busters

June: Whole Foods!!

Eric: Ray's MTB Indoor Park. (I have this odd feeling that I may be the only one on this one. Raysmtb.com)

Tracy: MACY'S

Jen: For sure not another Goodwill, Big Lots, or Savers. I'm surprised Becker didn't take the space. Are they building?!? WHOLE FOODS would be nice. Too bad they didn't want the new development that Rainbow snatched up. NORDSTROM RACK.

Rich: A Staples??

Somebody emailed me today asking about these features. Probably time to fire up a new one. The emailer said she would like to see a Cost Plus World Market in Woodbury.

Woodbury desperately needs a "Drafthouse Cinema". Much like the Alamo Drafthouse franchise. I would be willing to invest....

That could be cool Bode. I think someone suggested something along those lines for the Woody's spot. And for others who weren't in the know (like me) I had to google Drafthouse Cinema: www.drafthouse.com/

Demori's in Oakdale is for sale. That would be great for Cinema Cafe (only 1 screen tho)
