What Do You Want to Replace the Old A&W in Trenton?

The A&W on West Jefferson Avenue has been closed for years. What would you like to see take its place?

It's been a long time since anyone served a steaming hot chilidog with a side of cheesy chili fries at the now closed A&W at 2975 W Jefferson Ave.

Perhaps, some residents have grown to accept the empty building just steps away from , but not Trenton Patch. No chance.

We want to know what you'd like to see take the place of the old A&W in Trenton?

To get the ball rolling, I'm going to offer up my suggestion: a rental shop where park goers can rent outdoor equipment like kayaks, scooters and bicycles.

Remember, there is no wrong answer and you can add as many suggestions as you like. Have fun with it and let's see where this goes.

Tell us what you think should replace the old A&W in the comment section below.

Someone posted something about a bar...i don't see it here now, tho. Anyway....that could be cool! picture this. with all the local people brewing their own 5 gallon buckets of beer, wine and mead as hobbiest, why not encourage the local hobbiest brewer to sell buckets of brew to the "Trenton Brewing Co-op" (or whatever) at a low cost to be sampled by the public. it would be fun and i think it would bring people into the downtown area. A different, fun and interesting way to spend an evening Downriver. Now to find someone to go out on a limb and give one of these ideas a shot! come on financial backers...who is willing to suppport one of these businesses???

A&W, but if that can't happen, park rental equipment is a good idea!

I would like to see it reopen since my parents owned it for 27 years and my husband Denny & I owned it for 6 years before we moved to AZ. and bought an A&W in 1986. Maybe we should bring it back to the "good old days ". We are the ones to do it !
