Pinkberry, which opened its doors in Linden Square in August of 2011 with a festive free sampling night that we remember well, has closed its Wellesley location and is giving way to yet another juice shop. Peering through the windows of the froyo store, you can see that it has largely been cleared out, though no signs on the door indicated anything about the closing when we swung by on Tuesday night.
This marks the second time in less than a year that a frozen yogurt business has melted down in Wellesley. Yogurtology shut down late in 2016 and that space in Wellesley Square is still vacant.
But the Linden Square space will not remain idle for long. As we reported in June (“Yet ANOTHER juicy Wellesley story”), a business called Pressed Juicery is slated to move into the Pinkberry space. It would join Cocobeet (Wellesley Square) and Thirst Juice (part of the Belclare condo/retail complex) in cleansing the innards of Wellesley residents and visitors.
Pressed Juicery started up in California, and has expanded into Las Vegas, New York and Massachusetts, including on Newbury Street and in Harvard Square.
If you’re a Pinkberry fanatic, we hate to tell you that the closest locations now are all in Boston, including at the Pru and at Boston University.
