There's a convenience store four blocks away at Dancy and Park, one block from a gas station. We need another one? Surely we can do better.
If this were done exceptionally well--a new building in the character of the area, no parking lot, no gas-- maybe.... But when is the last time you saw one done well in the state of Florida? When I drive by convenience stores in the area (Springfield, Park/Oak Street in Avondale or Riverside), they seem to be dedicated magnets for dealers, street walkers and late night booze hounds. No matter how nice the signage is, this will not bode well for the neighborhood. Again, we can do better. I hope RAP steps up.
That said, I'd never go there and I live a few blocks away. Go away 7-11.
