Vacant lot being eyed for new business in Oregon

Posted: Updated:
OREGON, OH (Toledo News Now) -

Developers are looking to potentially bring a business to a currently empty lot in Oregon.

A contract between a potential buyer and the owner of property on Navarre Avenue near Wheeling is currently under negotiation.

David Owens, owner of a nearby barbershop, says any business coming to the area is good.

"It seems like since I've moved my business into this location, there's a whole lot more traffic than I've ever seen come down Navarre Avenue," Owens said.

He says the parking lot property in question has been empty for over 10 years, making it an eyesore – with potential.

"Our little saying about that corner is that it's a million-dollar corner. End of story," he said. "We all know what it used to be there, and what it could be again."

Many other business owners in the area said they just want something to go in the empty lot, and they hope the negotiation process ends soon.

"Any business is better than no business there," Owens said.
