Here’s a roundup of the latest Wellesley, Mass., business news:
Wellesley Massage Envy closing soon
Massage Envy, which opened its doors in Wellesley in 2008, will be closing up shop on June 17. It’s located on the opposite side of Linden Street from Roche Bros., next to/beneath the Beacon Hill Athletic Club.
One Swellesley reader wrote to us that he and his wife are longtime members of the Wellesley Massage Envy and were surprised to be notified recently that their future appointments had been cancelled.
There are nearby locations in Framingham, Newton and other communities.
Other massage places in Wellesley include the newish Mai Thai Spa in Wellesley Square.
Pucker Gallery, which last July appeared to be headed to the Belclare complex in Wellesley only to change its mind later in the year, has indeed popped up in that very space.
Linden Square sidewalk sale
Linden Square will be hosting a Sidewalk Sale from May 16-20. Participating retailers include: Sara Campbell, La Mia Moda, Pure Barre, Tiny Hanger and Magic Beans. On Saturday, May 19, Roche Bros., is also having its annual plant sale.
Art contest winners announced

Hi – I have been a member of the Wellesley Massage Envy since 2010 and they have not even notified me of the pending closure!!! I just found out today, from another source, less than one month before the closure. I am very surprised that management is being so disrespectful of longtime, loyal members. I am disappointed not just by the news, but also by the manner in which management is handling it. It is very unprofessional.
