Bear in mind that the Friends mall is due out later this year. That will have a few shops with it...
That aside, my daughter just incorporated some of the Friends beachie type sets into a beach scene ...
I also thought about creating optional first floor shops on some modulars. The Pet Shop and Parisian Restaurant sets seem well suited for this. Adding Friends elements to the modulars I think would give my downtown a more updated and modern feel not unlike a real modern city downtown where the buildings themselves are very old, but new stores open up from time to time with very modern signage and deco.
On a similar note of wanting to finish out the Friends sets, I ended up buying 2 Friends beach houses to add to my growing beach front neighborhood. The idea was to use 2 sets to make 1 complete beach house. I have the two Creator beach houses (the older yellow one and the newer blue one). The Friends beach house makes 3.
I have seen one Modular-type Friends creation where the bottom floor was the beauty shop. I think sets like the bakery and the juice bar work great for City buildings, and I don't think would look out of place if they were the bottom floor of some modular building.
