Our roundup of the latest Wellesley MA business news:
Another Hills coffee shop brewing
While Wellesley Square of late has had a coffee drought, there’s no such issue in the Hills. There’s Caffè Nero, CrepeBerry, Quebrada, and soon, it looks like a new shop called Jejes Coffeehouse & Roastery could be opening in the former Prime Fitness space at 259 Washington St. The 7-seat eatery will offer coffee, tea, desserts, and coffee beans. The operator has a business called Jejes Coffee Roasters in Sharon, Mass.
LINX intros New England Outdoor Camp
LINX is bringing the nature experience back to summer camp with New England Outdoor Camp, a new day camp set up to connect campers ages 3 – 15 to nature with programs that encourage their personal interests. The idea is to involve kids in a throw-back, vintage-type summer camp, one where they explore and play outside at an easy pace and without any technology at all.
Located at Elm Bank Reservation in Wellesley—an expansive property that includes river-access, trails, forested areas, gardens, and the opportunity for campfires—activities will include canoeing, archery, hiking, orienteering, outdoor survival skills, gardening, arts and crafts, music, cooking, games, sports, and wellness. As campers grow at NEOC, they will be encouraged to wander about, investigate, and build their understanding of nature, always in an age appropriate way.
Registration is now open for weekly sessions from June 13th through September 2nd. Camp runs Mon.-Fri., 9am-4pm, and can be extended as early as 8am or as late as 6pm. A bus service is available, which includes a sibling bus discount.
HYP making a Wellesley comeback
HYP Yoga disappeared from Wellesley Square at the end of 2020 and we never were able to get any word from the business on what happened. We just figured it was the obvious: The pandemic.
But now it looks like HYP is coming back to town in a different location: Upstairs at 141 Linden St.
Roy’s Recycling merges into E.L. Harvey & Sons
E.L. Harvey & Sons has announced its merger with Roy’s, whose blue receptacles are plentiful across Wellesley (much to the chagrin of the Wellesley Recycling & Disposal Facility). As with all mergers, existing customers are being told they’ll hardly notice a difference.
Wolfers Lighting has changed up its arrival plans at 61A Central St., a couple of times, originally targeting this past fall, and then the end of January. Now it is shooting for the end of the first quarter.
“New delays related to COVID have impacted all of us, including our timeline for opening. We are working as quickly as we can while keeping our team & project partners safe, and our current schedule will now have us open by the end of Q1….” the company says.
