Here’s a roundup of the latest Wellesley business news:
Xylem going out with a bang
Xylem, the modern decor and accessories store that moved late last year from Cambridge to Wellesley’s Church Square, is closing.
“We are sad to announce that our store in Wellesley will be closing,” the owners write on their website. “But we are excited to share with you one last BIG sale as we close our doors for good. Starting today, everything in the store is (at least) 20% off!! It’s the perfect time to stock up on Holiday gifts, treats for yourself, and much more.
We relocated to Wellesley a bit over a year ago, after having been in business in Cambridge for five successful years. We thank everyone here for the incredibly warm welcome and all of your kind comments since we’ve opened! We’ve loved meeting you all. But to be quite honest, there just hasn’t been enough business here to keep us afloat, so when an opportunity came up to pass our lease along to another retailer, we realized that it was time to move on…”
The business is located at 30 Church Street in Wellesley. Its hours starting Dec. 13th will be Mon-Sat 10am-6pm, Sun 12-5pm. Check the website for updates on January hours and increasing discounts.
