The latest Wellesley, Mass., business news:
CrepeBerry to close
CrepeBerry, which opened at 352 Washington St., in Wellesley Hills, back in 2017, has put out a last call for crepes on Oct. 28.
Owner Amelia Childs Schwartzman posted on social media, “To my beloved customers, the time has come to close our doors…” She thanked customers and staff who helped the shop weather the pandemic, but life changes (including a much longer commute than she had when the restaurant opened) have factored into the decision to move on. We’ll have more later in the week on this community-oriented business’s goodbye.
Cattivo opens its doors
Cattivo, a women’s clothing and accessories boutique, has opened at 91 Central St. This adds to its locations in Hingham, Scituate, and Newbury Street in Boston.
The business was launched by a woman and her daughters.
We swung by this past week to take some pics, but the retailer was camera shy that day.
Pickleball club planned for Natick Mall
The answer to some of Wellesley’s pickleball court challenges is already in Natick for some, who use the courts at Heffler Park along Rte. 9 and Oak Street. Now more courts might become available at a planned club at the former Neiman Marcus site at Natick Mall
The Natick Planning Board meeting on Oct. 25 includes an agenda item for a public hearing on plans for “A Premier Pickledom Experience,” as Bosse Sports makes its case for indoor pickleball and a couple of restaurants at 330 Speen St. Reports last week revealed plans for the project.
The parcel not long ago was envisioned as yet another life science lab space during the recent lab building frenzy.
High-end fashion retailer Neiman Marcus closed its Natick location last year at the 2-story, 94,000 sq. ft. space.
