You pretty much hit the hotspots for this, other than to directly contact a few commercial brokers to see if they have a pocket listing.

MLS has a business opportunitied section. Bizben.com

In fact, you can search FSBO type in yogurt shop near N SD and get lots of leads.

Craigslist is popular. 

I spent about 10 sec and found 20 stores for sale in North SD....

Our mls handles some commercial listings, but it seems most commercial agents prefer not to list in the mls. You can check commercial brokers websites and you'll probably find more listings. http://www.cbre.us/o/washingtondc/Pages/washington-dc-commercial-real-estate.aspx

Loopnet.com.  The best way is to know who the brokers are.   If it is listed, it is agenerally a coupon clipper return.  It is the unlisted ones that are the gems, and for that you need to work with someone that did what we did, research, network, etc.  A

Loopnet is one, our MLS has some but if you are treading in the area of commercial you might be best to get in touch with a commercial agent as often the good properties and deals are made outside of the systems. 

Good luck.

I think that Loopnet is a piece of crap, that shoots itself and it's customers by trying to double dip.

Best to just contact the commercial agents in the area where you are looking.

Commercial agents have access to their own type of MLS is what I learned. You can make a deal to go through one of them for a fee or Sandicore which I have used. Many ways to skin the Real Estate cat
