Strange tale of Wellesley Optical


The Townsman is reporting that Wellesley Optical at 72 Central St. apparently shut down recently, leaving customers in the lurch. The story is complicated, involving a landlord dispute and a former owner, who operates Wellesley Optical on Newbury St. in Boston. Meanwhile, other local stores, including Lilly Eyecare on Washington Street, are offering to help out abandoned customers. A business card for Lilly has been attached to the Wellesley Optical door, along with a copy of the Townsman article with a section about the mess highlighted.
