Pressed Juicery, a Santa Monica-based seller of cold-pressed juices ranging from those steeped in roots and fruits to citrus and greens, has gone before a Wellesley board to get permission for signs for a shop in Linden Square that appears to be in the space occupied by Pinkberry since the summer of 2011.
While big on cleansing through juicing, Pressed Juicery isn’t coming clean yet on any details about its Wellesley plans (“Unfortunately, I don’t have any additional information to share at this time, however, I’ll absolutely keep you posted once I do,” a spokeswoman writes). It’s unclear exactly when Pressed Juicery might be arriving. Linden Square property manager Federal Realty doesn’t “comment on lease related matters” and Pinkberry hasn’t responded to our inquiry.
But Pressed Juicery has been given the town’s blessing for signs it wants to erect in Linden Square at 180 Linden St.
If Pressed Juicery does, as expected, set up shop in Wellesley, it will be the third juice business to target the town in recent months. Thirst Juice expanded beyond Boston into Wellesley in November as the only retailer so far to fill a spot in the Belclare complex. Cocobeet opened in Wellesley Square in February. Other new Wellesley eateries, such as B.Good and CrepeBerry, have also upped the healthy food ante in town.
Pressed Juicery started up in California, and has expanded into Las Vegas, New York and Massachusetts, including on Newbury Street and in Harvard Square.
As for Pinkberry, we don’t know what their plans are. But there is a space in Wellesley Square that has been home to at least 2 ice cream/frozen yogurt shops that’s begging for a new tenant.
