TELL US: What Store Would You Like To Come to Red Bank or Shrewsbury?

Both boroughs have booming shopping areas, but what else do our readers want to see?

Shrewsbury and Red Bank are two boroughs known for their stores and restaurants.

There's everything from arcades like YesterCades in Red Bank to Trader Joe's in Shrewsbury.

However, Patch wants to know if our readers think there is something else they would like to see added to the area.

Perhaps another supermarket such as Wegmans or another Asian restaurant?

Get creative and post your answers in the comments below.

Make locations more affordable to rent out to businesses. Exp: Rivers Edge was a loss we used to loveto go to dinner and sit outside BYOB love the place and it's now re-located. Business can't afford the rents in order to stay.

I want the Professional Pharmacy back in RB, what a huge loss for all the residents!

Red Bank (improvement group, whatever their name was... Riverview, Riverside something?) WANTED to be an up and coming, and hip town. So they started solicitating and promoting high end (priced) retailers and restaurants. Well, Red Bank got what THEY wanted. Now the landlords want THEIR end. Why not? If the Red Bank (again... the "improvement group") couldn't foresee this coming way back when, then they didn't do their Due Diligence. Now they'll have to deal with the "error of their ways". ...it's too bad. Hope they can rethink this and come up with a solution.

How about somewhere to buy a nail or a screw in Red Bank? I think I can get a chrome-plated hammer in Restoration Hardware, but we need a real hardware store.

Apple Store.

I agree with Dan and Jen - we need a drugstore and a place to buy everyday items, The town is becoming full of banks and restaurants - we need to get back to basics and have stores that the residents of the town can walk to and afford to buy something, ann

Yes, Apple Store! Red Bank needs something besides Italian food and expensive home goods to bring people in to town. A hardware store across the street or a new natural foods store would seal the deal for me.

yes.........we need some "affordable" stores that us regular folk can enjoy with our children and grandchildren!! There was nothing like going to woolworth's and having a greasy cheeseburger and a milkshake :-) bring back the "good ole' days!!!
