Wellesley business buzz: Farewell Terrazza; Susu replacement; Pressed Juicery & Sweetgreen update; B/Spoke branches out

Here’s a roundup of news from around Wellesley’s business community this week:

*Terrazza Church Square, the fine arts and crafts gallery that opened its Wellesley shop in 2014, has announced a store closing sale starting on Thursday, with everything 20%-50% off. Terrazza also has a location in Franklin, and that shop will remain open.

We hear a pizza joint will move into the 32 Church St., space. Because yes, Wellesley does need another pizza joint.

Terrazza has offered a unique collection of wares during its run in Wellesley, and we did enjoy those cheeky “Not Going Out of Business” sale signs that graced the store’s windows to poke fun at a few waves of nearby going-out-of-business sales. Terrazza even brightened the surrounding area with a colorful flowery bench that we’d love to see stay as a reminder of the shop’s time here…

*While we have no official word on what will take over the former Susu Bakery & Cafe at 575 Washington St., the scuttlebutt is strong that a high-end Mexican restaurant will be moving in, and possibly taking up at least some of the former Lyn Evans space that sits adjacent. Anyone hearing a restaurant name?


*Pressed Juicery, the cold-pressed juice shop that will fill Pinkberry’s old spot in Linden Square, will look to open either this week or next. As you can see here, things are looking pretty ready to go inside the shop. As for Sweetgreen, the salads and grain bowls eatery that will soon have more than a dozen locations in Massachusetts, its Linden Square spot next to Pressed Juicery should be ready to do business by year-end.

*Even B/Spoke, the cycling studio that opened in Wellesley Square this past spring, acknowledges that too much of a good thing isn’t ideal. The business this month has opened “The Training Lab” at it 50 Central St., spot to host a variety of fitness classes incorporating everything from pilates to martial arts to anaerobic bursts. The first new off-the-bike class, called TRAIN, “will focus on movements matched to music that will build strength across all major body systems,” according to a statement from co-founder Mark Partin. The studio has some special offers available to entice sign-ups:  www.bspokestudios.com.
