…but empty storefronts abound: What will fill them?
With retail lease space often turning over at the end of the year, we’ll be keeping our eyes and ears open for business openings and closings across Wellesley in coming weeks (please message us if you’re seeing or hearing anything on this front: [email protected]).
The list of high profile empty storefronts include:
- The former Yogurtology (2 years and counting…), Patti Bros., Century Bank and Red Apple spaces in Wellesley Square
- The ex-French Lessons spot in Linden Square, the former i.d. Salon, Nabina’s Threading & Spa (it says it is moving next door), Dayton Homes and 2 Zoots spaces in Wellesley Hills and Lower Falls
- The former Lyn Evans Potpourri space in Church Square (that business moved down the block)
- The former Bertucci’s location at Playhouse Square.
Are we missing any big ones?
You can almost smell White’s Bakery opening
Two nice new signs have been erected at Playhouse Square for White’s Bakery, which is now hiring to prep for its early winter opening. White’s Bakery, which has been around since 1980, has locations in Brockton, Hingham and Mansfield, and offers a selection of sweet and savory goodies.
Verizon opens for business
Meanwhile, Verizon just opened its store in Linden Square in between Unleashed by Petco and the soon-to-be-opened Door No. 7 restaurant. Can AT&T and T-Mobile be far behind?
