Two long-time Wellesley Hills businesses have cleared out of the historic H.H. Richardson train station building, with one moving to Winchester and the other seeking a new Wellesley location.
A Z Fine Arts gallery, which set up shop at the unique Wellesley spot at 339 Washington St., 10-plus years ago, has announced its relocation to Winchester. “After over ten years we have taken a new location and hope all our loyal customers will follow and we look forward to meeting new people in Winchester as well,” the business has posted on its Facebook page.
Separately, Jaylin Cleaners, which operated in Wellesley for 20 years, according to a note posted on its former space alongside A Z Fine Arts, has left not of its own accord. After 20 years serving your dry cleaning needs we regret to inform you that we have lost our lease. Our landlord has decided to go in a different direction.”
The change has some from Wellesley expressing angst on social media about what might become of the space in light of other tear downs in town of old buildings.
Jaylin’s Marc Rosenthal writes in the note that the cleaning business is looking for another location in Wellesley, but in the meantime can serve customers at its Needham location (317 Chestnut St.) or at its plant in Newton at 1160 Beacon St.
