Here’s our round-up of the latest Wellesley, Mass., business news:
Downer for Wellesley Square’s Upper Crust
Upper Crust Pizzeria, which has perhaps the most Swellesley name of any Wellesley business, has closed down after nearly 10 years in business at the western end of Wellesley Square. A sign on the business’s door says the business closed on Nov. 30 (there is no indication that the shop has closed on Upper Crust’s social media accounts).
Upper Crust temporarily closed back in 2013 following corporate moving and shaking, but has been a steady business since. Fans of Upper Crust enjoyed its thin crust pizza.
Other Upper Crest locations can be found in communities such as Brookline and Burlington.
Wellesley is now left with approximately 999 pizza shops (See also: Where to eat in Wellesley).
Sloane & Ivy closes
The ivy is apparently greener abroad, as owner Kate Phelan has written to customers letting them know that she’s compelled to take advantage of an overseas opportunity.
