Here’s a round-up of the latest Wellesley, Mass., business news:
What’s up at ex-Bertucci’s space
Don’t get too excited yet about the activity swirling around the ex-Bertucci’s space at Playhouse Square next to White’s Bakery.
Contractor Haynes Group is busy doing some preliminary work inside to prep the space for a future tenant, but there is nobody in line to snap up the space yet. I spoke with a Haynes Group representative who said the company has been hired to take the interior to a certain point. From there, a tenant will be sought. Once a tenant is found, Haynes hopes to be the company to take the project to completion.
CouCou closing in Wellesley
CouCou, the stylish kids’ clothing & more store that opened on the Belclare retail strip last summer, has announced it will close its Wellesley shop and concentrate on its Boston and online businesses.
The Belclare strip, which just a few months ago was nearly fully occupied for the first time, has suddenly become a partial ghost town. The two businesses to the west of CouCou, Legit and La Mia Moda, have also shut down their Wellesley shops.
CouCou will look to go out with a bang, putting its offerings on sale between now and its Aug. 31 closing. Owner Astrid Motsenigos says, “We are looking at hosting a holiday pop up in Wellesley from November to December to come serve our customers there again. Potentially in an empty space or at one of the existing women’s boutiques we have great relationships with.”
Meanwhile, Barber Walter’s, Agnes Vision and other businesses remain on the Belclare strip, but the property manager could now use another influx.

SPONSORED POST: News Flash: 2019 is the perfect year to learn music. Bach to Rock Wellesley offers week-long music boot camps for the whole Summer, available to all ages and experience levels. We talked with our students and parents from years past and have updated and expanded some of our selections so that kids of all ages can Rock Out in no time! All are welcome here to learn, so call or stop in to find get more information about our camp programs.
Bach to Rock‘s camps are a combination of music fundamentals, instrument instruction, performance, and of course FUN! Music is inside all of us but sometimes we don’t know where to start. One of the biggest benefits of our camps is to get experience on different instruments so you can find “your own voice”. Our method is learning through doing not boring lectures or just a day camp, and each of our students leave having built up knowledge and enough experience to join a band, or start private lessons. There’s no experience or instruments needed (everything is already here), just the excitement and ambition to learn something new. Make 2019 the year you learn to express yourself with music.
Camp not your thing? We offer regular group classes as well as private lessons year round and are waiting to teach you!
SPONSORED POST: The wait is over. New York’s top-rated summer technology program, SummerTech, finally comes to the Wellesley area this summer for three amazing weeks in late July and early August for kids ages 10 – 17. SummerTech is the only summer STEM program that teaches to the individual. Our 3:1 student-to-teacher ratio enables kids to move at their own pace through coding classes, animation, web development, 3D modeling courses, gaming events, and more.
