Is Oldsmar Flea Next
“At the end of the day, it was obvious that the buyer was truly interested in improving the flea market for both the vendors and shoppers while at the same time demonstrating to the seller a true commitment to getting this deal done from the beginning at the highest price without any hesitation”
If you have visited the Flea Market in the past few years, it is no surprise that a needed renovation is way overdue, and it shows. I have frequented the Oldsmar Flea for well over 25 years, and it is sort of depressing. From the empty storefronts, and outside vendor spots. To the deserted aisle that use to be filled with shoppers looking for those unique finds and deals, the market needs help! And I am not alone in my thinking.
In 2017, Oldsmar Mayor Doug Bevis told news channel WFLA that redevelopment was a possibility for the flea market.
“Some mixed use office, retail, residential, shops and things like that would be a great use for that,” Bevis told the TV station. “But, in the end of the day, it depends on what the buyer decides to do with it.”
As of now no changes have been announced, so the long term intent of the property is still a mystery.
What do you think they should do? Leave me a comment.
