SEVEN-YEAR VACANCY ENDS ... In what may be one of Palo Alto's longest commercial/retail vacancies ever, the wait is over and a new tenant is preparing to move in. After seven years, the space in Charleston Shopping Center, between Mountain Mike's Pizza and Pet Food Depot, is finally rented. Huntington Learning Center has signed on as its occupant. The space has been dark ever since Neighborhood Liquor and Video moved out in October 2005 after an eight-year-run. The renovation to transform the spot into an after-school student tutoring service is expected to take about six months for a scheduled April 2013 opening. "It's a good location and Palo Alto has a very nice student community," Huntington franchise-owner Harpreet Soni said. The learning center offers academic skills, subject tutoring and exam preparation for students from kindergarten through high school. "We're eager to help every child to do their best. We want our kids to have a better future," Soni said.
