What Should Go in Bucchin's Superette?

Neighborhood corner grocery closed at Third Ave. and W. Broad more than a year ago. What should take its place?


Is it just us, or has the neighborhood corner grocery store gone the way of the dinosaur, replaced by big-chain convenience marts and big-box supermarkets?

What goes here, Bethlehem? Tell us in the comments.
