Interesting doings at the Central Square block of Wellesley Square.
First, Marshall Smith (the Smith in Brookline and Wellesley Booksmith) has announced plans to retire and he is looking for a buyer for the 10-year-old Wellesley Booksmith, according to a Townsman report.
The Booksmith is located in a 4,500 sq. ft. space and if you’re interested in buying, the guy to talk to is Paul Siegenthaler of Ridge Hill Partners.
Separately, a reader called our attention either out of concern or excitement that the Gap/Gap Kids’ lease is expiring in January according to the website for Linear Retail. A partner with Linear confirmed that the lease on the 15,804 sq.ft. space currently occupied by the Gap/Gap Kids does expire in January but that the Gap would like to stay.
