What Do You Wish Were Here? The Ingles at 5100 Annistown Rd. is long gone.

This shopping center is an empty box. What do you wish were there instead?

We want readers to tell us what they wish were in the place of shuttered or abandoned space in the Stone Mountain-Redan area.

This shopping center at 5100 Annistown Rd. used to house an Ingles grocery store and other businesses. Today, there's nothing left but the boarded-up building and a parking lot.

What do you wish were there instead? Tell us in the comments!

I thought about two things for this facility every time I drove passed it. (1) An event facility that's all in one since it is such a big building or (2) Planet Fitness.

Hi Tamara! I hadn't thought about an event facility....it's certainly large enough. I can totally imagine "Planet Fitness" there!

international farmers market, look at the one on ponce, nothing really going on there commercially and it's thriving, worth a shot better than empty building eyesore

That's what it's used for now any way.

Bottom line, if the people in Black Mountain, North Carolina put a little money into the property it would still be an Ingles or better. The confluence of traffic that heads towards Snellville/Lilburn, Centerville/Loganville, Lithonia/Stone Mtn. and I-20/Stone Crest assures that enough traffic passes the location. I say build it and they will stop. Now it would be up to the merchants to have a decent offering. No redundancy of barber/weave shops, Jamaican restaurants or liquor stores needed to ensure a successful shopping center.
