Our roundup of the latest Wellesley, Mass., business news:
Salt Boutique on its way
Salt Boutique, which describes itself as offering contemporary women’s clothing featuring “West coast style with a dash of New England vibes,” is expanding beyond Nantucket to Wellesley Square. The retailer plans to open in November near Ardan at 72 Central St.
Cruising through Salt’s online store shows prices ranging from $50 to $350 for items.
We’ve seen this before: fashion shops going for shoppers in both Nantucket and Wellesley. Isabel Harvey is one. Crane & Lion did so briefly.
Salt’s Nantucket shop closes for the season this month. Owner Jennifer Devlin grew up on Nantucket and opened the shop in 2015.
She now lives in Wellesley, so opening a shop here made sense for that reason. But the idea also presented itself to her when Nantucket canceled its Holiday Stroll, usually a lucrative event for Salt. ” The opportunity with empty retail space in town combined with the lost opportunity for sales on Island got me thinking, so I decided to give it a try,” she says.
