Wears Woody pops up in Wellesley Square
Wears Woody, the casual clothing store with “bold coastal style” that started out on Cape Cod and the Vineyard, has popped up in Wellesley Square in the former NRO space (NRO hopped over to Linden Square over the summer), and will be there for the holiday season.
The way cool beach-vibe company sells T-shirts, sweatshirts, caps and more. The business got its start in a Jeep Grand Wagoneer and a rickshaw (built by some Babson College students), and has has grown since then, partnering with various retailers. Wears Woody is a big supporter of research into type 1 diabetes, which founder Mike Norwood has been living with for more than 30 years.
