I was thinking the other day about the proliferation of certain types of stores and shops in Janesville. We seem to have our share of second-hand stores and pawn shops. We have enough stores buying gold and jewelry. We seem to have too many dollar stores and pay-day loan businesses.

So which retailer is Janesville lacking? I'm not talking about a restaurant—everyone knows we have more than our share of pizza, Mexican and other fast-food chain eateries. (I love pizza and a good burrito, but my limited dining-out dollars can support only so many such restaurants). Instead, I'm talking about retail stores. Which one—if any—would you like to see Janesville get?
