Pine Straw — the new Wellesley shop offering tabletop items, home accents and personal accessories — plans to open its doors this Saturday, Oct. 1, making it the latest business to bloom on that section of Washington Street that not long ago was looking pretty barren (we introduced you to Pine Straw over the summer and Pine Straw’s Tracy Cranley has documented the shop’s arrival via a blog).
The area that was home not long ago to Star Market, Tian Fu, Rite-Aid, St. Moritz, Sports Replay and D.B. Stock Antique Carpets, is now home to the new Whole Foods Market and City Sports (which has its grand opening on Saturday as well after its soft opening last weekend). Brookline Bank is also moving in to part of the old Rite-Aid building near Whole Foods. Wellesley Antique Lighting continues to hold its own next door to where Pine Straw is opening.
Above and below is a sneak peek inside Pine Straw, which has put a flag up outside its building to herald its arrival.
