    and here's another big box store closing it's doors after just a year or so in Morrisville. So who is going to move into that location? most likely no one, so it will sit empty for how long or get torn down and replaced. That would be very lucky, so many places around the state are not that lucky. Empty or nearly empty strip malls or big box anchor stores sit empty with little hope of ever getting a life again. I've alway thought that someone city/state should require owners to put up some $$ to allow the city to tear the building down and replant the vegetation back in it place or convert it into a park or something the city can use.
