Our roundup of the latest Wellesley, Mass., business news:
Central Street Starbucks seeks to make comeback
According to signs in the windows at 68A Central St., home to the Starbucks that has been closed since November due to staffing shortages, the coffee shop plans to reopen this spring. Signs posted in November informed patrons and passersby that the Wellesley Square Starbucks had temporarily consolidated with the Linden Square one, leading to a coffee shop drop in the middle of town in the wake of Peet’s and other options shutting down.
The new signs at the Central Street Starbucks reads in part: “Wellesley, we are so happy to share with you our goal of re-opening in Spring 2022….” with a plug to join its staff.
(Hat tip to our coffee-drinking neighbor for the tip this morning.)
