What new business would you like to see locate in the Heights?

Amazon fulfillment center

It would have been amazing if the city had allowed the Herps Alive Foundation to open its reptile rescue and education center here. The center is in South Euclid, which (as has been explained to me) had laws that would allow, while CH City Council chose not to change some laws on the books to allow it. We take the kids there at least once a month just to look around. Amazing!
-
Small professional offices (dental, legal, medical, etc.) to drive business income so we can start thinking about lowering the tax burden for our residents.
-
High quality menswear store.
-
An independently owned family-style pet store
-
Hobby Lobby would be great in Severance Center.
-
community garden
-
How 'bout a good seafood store/estaurant with consistently good food?
-
An upscale prepared food carry-out place.
-
Would love to see Severance Circle acquire some new stores!
-
An ice cream parlor to replace the sorely missed Sweetie Fry
-
Forget axe-throwing, Severance's old Walmart site would be great for Dave & Busters. The location I go to is always busy. There are games (Hello, Star Wars flight simulator!) and restaurant space, but also space for large-party catering. This means jobs and entertainment, and would draw folks from surrounding areas.
-
A revitalized Severence Town Center
With a movie theater, and a bowling ally.


-
Mr. Chicken
-
Trader Joe's at Severance.
-
Would love to see a roller skating rink arcade and bowling facility at severance.
-
A movie theatre and nice restaurants at Severance
-
Bowling alley.
-
Minature golf
-
Some type of smaller food store, bakery and drugstore in iMayfield-Warrensville area.Seven-Eleven has a limited choice of items.
-
Severance Center revitalized with the movie theater reopened... right now it's such a waste of space...
-
I agree with others that the area needs a bowling alley and a movie theater. Decades ago both Severance and Cedar Center had one of each and now the closest place to see a major movie is Richmond Mall or Shaker Square. Cedar Lee is a fantastic venue for what it is but it's not like you get the major releases there. I couldn't even tell you where the nearest bowling alley is anymore.

Indoor/Outdoor putt-putt/mini golf or batting cages would also be terrific.

There are already tons of fantastic places to eat and good places to shop nearby but there's nothing to DO - especially during the cold, winter months.
-
A Red Lobster at Severance.
-
A nice “soda fountain “ type place. Juke box, pinball, milkshakes and hamburgers, kid/family friendly.
A bowling alley! Again, family friendly.
At Coventry, a high end restaurant aka Hyde Park Grill. Nice boutique.
-
Chick-Fil-A
-
Coventry: A high-end restaurant, like we used to have. (Hyde Park Grille)
Severance: Mid- to high-end restaurants, a nice bowling alley (not with a run-down, cheap bar attached), boutiquey shops- a bit like Pinecrest. Maybe a movie theatre, but it must be well-run. We went to Severance Theatre almost until they closed just to support it. But we finally gave up. We too often complained that they allowed unruly guests remain in the theatre. (No talking. No cell phones.) We need to bring $$$ into the area to lower the taxes of the residents! No $$$ = ⬆⬆⬆ taxes! Like it or not, that is the key to revitalizing Cleveland Hts!
-
A swimming pool (or pools) and family sports facility at Severance Center where there is plenty of room and parking. It should be more than a swimming pool so there is plenty to do to attract families. How about including a "sun dome" where people could walk and enjoy daylight and warm sunshine in the winter months.
-
Sherwin Williams. They get a large, attractive physical plant that is easy to change to suit their needs. There is Police, Fire, medical, and a Post Office right there. It's located in a pleasant, attractive suburb of their hometown.

We get a good neighbor that will, hopefully, be here quite a while. It is historically more appropriate to re-use the original plant than to tear it down for some mixed use.
-
A Trader Joes or an Ikea would save Severance from ruin, but the chances of getting those without highway access are close to zero.

That said, more locally owned shops and fewer "dollar" stores and chain restaurants would also greatly benefit our neighborhoods. In order for this to happen, rents in our commercial districts have to be significantly lowered.
-
Bowling alley would be great, as well as a pet supplies store. A fabric store with sewing lessons would be appreciated. Home decor/upcycle shop.
