I especially miss the bulk (spices and dr. bronners as well as the main bulk); some of the random local things: the Just Soap and the 21st Century Tofu from JP; big containers of active dry yeast; eco pack bags of Nature's Path cereal.
(I am in favor of places that are T-accessible from greater Davis, and especially in favor of places that aren't Whole Foods.)
- The Shawarma Place, in Cutter Square (EDIT: moved to 215 Highland Ave)
- Aguacate Verde, in Wilson Square
- Union Mart and Subway, in Union Square
The former iYO Cafe/Bistro at 234 Elm Street has a big new RESTAURANT AVAILABLE sign in the window. The QR code on the sign leads to a blank page, but I found the restaurant listed for sale on this page
SOMERVILLE, MA Café / Restaurant Location Common Victualler License Busy High Traffic Location. Sales History of $14,400.00 per week. Approximately 2,510 SF. Rent $50 - $55 PSF. 60 Seats. Beautiful Buildout with Exposed Brick Walls. Great Opportunity.
with more detail available here if you login to the nerest.com website. I'll include that detail below the lj-cut.
At an informal meeting with a few local residents Wednesday evening, Ward 6 Alderman Lance Davis said that Taco Bell has expressed interest in this location for their new Taco Bell Cantina restaurant format, which includes alcoholic beverages. Only a few of these exist so far, in Chicago, Austin, San Francisco, and Las Vegas.( Restaurant for sale detail )
Once this closes, the nearest Family Dollar will be at 1030 Cambridge Street in Cambridge, corner of Columbia Street and Webster Avenue (near Union and Inman squares). I don't know how long that one will remain a Family Dollar, since it is one of the stores the chain is divesting to become part of the new Dollar Express chain.
If this is like other liquidation sales, I expect the discounts to increase as the stock dwindles.
A sign inside directs customers to visit the Family Dollar at 469 Salem Street in Medford after this store closes.
* This Family Dollar doesn't actually sell any alcoholic beverages. Maybe some other location does?
I'm planning to make an excursion to try and get as many of their old out-of-print gay comics that I can. So many good businesses closing their doors... :(
With the recent closing of iYo, this leaves quite a froyo gap in the square all of a sudden!? Has froyo had its moment and now become uncool? :(
In or near 2263 Mass Ave (where L'impasto was, which I hadn't even realized had closed, did something else close, too?), will be:
Urban Hearth http://www.urbanhearth.net/
Curio Spice Co. http://www.curiospice.com
"Café Luna has applied to move its catering business to the site, where it would continue to do the cooking for off-site catering in the area and also provide on-site seating for people who want salads, coffee and so forth."
Cafe Luna is currently in Central Square. I've never been there.
Being unfamiliar with any of these businesses, I'm not sure how excited to be. Any thoughts? :)
