Can we get a book store around here!

By

I love living in Fleming Island, Florida! Real estate in this area still moves pretty well if priced in line with today's market. A desirable area for sure. Everything you want is here!

A Walmart Supercenter - where else can you buy motor oil, plants, clothes and groceries at the same time?

Home Depot - (my favorite) Although a Lowes strategically placed might generate some price wars.

Target - For the more upscale buyer......really now is this a French name?

Blockbuster - Does anyone rent movies this way anymore?

There's also a number of clothing stores, gas stations even a Radio Shack (can't you buy radios cheaper somewhere else). Best of all no matter what you're in the mood for there are many restaurants to choose from. How about the Blu Grotto and The Mellow Mushroom just to name a few that recently opened. While the "Mellow Mushroom" has some great pie, what kind of name is that for a pizza place?

The schools are good and close, and there are new shopping centers popping up all over! We also have a fantastic Clay County library, and some of the best fire and police personnel around. Not to mention if you know someone who lives in Eagle Harbor you just may get to visit the fabulous swim park and enjoy all the other amenities there.

One thing we do lack that I think is very important is a book store. (Isn't it clever that I'm in real estate and the books in the picture below are shaped like a house)

Why hasn't anyone thought of this yet? We have to go all the way to the Orange Park Mall's Books A Million and I don't know about you but I try and stay as far away from the mall as possible. That place is crazy, man! If you live in Green Cove Springs or Middleburg you really have a drive ahead of you. One thing I have noticed about that mall is that the majority of the people there.......aren't shopping. They like to just... hang out. Go figure! Anyway, if someone would invest in a good book store in Fleming Island I think they would do very well indeed. Come on Barnes & Noble! Get with the program Books A Million.....a stand alone book store would be an awesome addition to the area and just may keep me from crossing the Doctors Lake bridge. Well except Sunday mornings, and uh...work days. Well, we may have to work on that also.

Yes I agree, Fleming Island is one of the best places to live in Orange Park. As far as home buyers are concerned the area has a price range suitable for all. Almost every property type is represented, waterfront homes, gated communities, golf course homes. Communities with CDD fees and those without. Condos and town homes are very good buys right now if you like a low maintenance lifestyle.

If you're in the market for a home we launched a great new site recently where you can search ALL available Jacksonville and Orange Park homes for sale.

The Fleming Island area does offer everything. I'm wondering why Ballys Fitness completely shut their doors without telling any of their memebers just a few months ago. Yet they are building a brand new facility on Hwy 17. Anyone have the scoop?

How much longer do you think Blockbuster can remain in business. They have movies they rent for $3 - $5 that you can get at any Redbox for  only $1, Someone should start up a pool.
