The storefront at the intersection of Eagle Road and Hirst Terrace is available for rent. According to the sign, the corner location features a full basement. The vacant space sits next to a barbershop and an alternative healing center.

What would you like to see move into this space off? Let us know your suggestions in the comments.

How about another nail, pizza, or hair place? Havertown could use more of these.

Whatever it is, I hope they do well. Nothing ever seems to last in this little section. They did a great job fixing up the building, to looks beautiful. Now, if only the eye sore next to the pharmacy would do the same. That place looks awful, low rent, and totally brings down the rest of the businesses. Something should be done about that. Who owns that building? It needs a major overhaul. Even Burkes Inn looks great. They should be congratulated for helping to beautify the area. Of course, what would we do without the Oakmont Pub? It always looks amazing at any time of the year!

This store has been vacant for over 20 years. Havertown needs a good bakery at this end of town.

I would love to see a lamp store. Not just lamps, of course. Lamp shades would be fine. Lightbulb and electrical fixtures as well. But no prepared foods, please.

A butcher that would also sell Farm Fresh Food Items or a Great Bakery.

La Dolce was a Bakery on Eagle Rd where Pepperocini is now. Didn't survive....

Have: You are right! I drove by there today. When I was little I wasn't allowed to cross Darby Road. I am 54 now, so I need to grow up, I guess.
