If you could open one kind of business in town, what would you go with?
Assume money was no object and the only limit your imagination: what kind of business would you love to run in Wellesley? It could be a store you feel would perform well in the city, or a business that would provide a much-needed service. In the last year we have seen comings and goings, such as an Old Fashioned Barber Shop Opening in Linden Square, or Wellesley's Upper Crust Closed, (at Least for a bit). Would you love to have your own bar? A coffee shop? Maybe there's something off-the-wall you've seen work really well in another community. Whatever it is, share your ideas with your neighbors in our comment section below.

As one door shuts, could another one open? What would you want to see in Wellesley to replace the reportedly outgoing restaurant?
Launched in 2004, China Sky recently closed its doors with a note saying they were making repairs--however, that may not be the case. Reports indicate the Forest Street restaurant is not just "closed for repairs," but gone for good. The Swellesley Report updated their story on the closing yesterday. Swellesley also says inquiries have come in from a number of sources expressing interest in the property. So, we're turning to you: If you could choose, what would you put there? What would you like to see on Forest Street?

The rug company announced its new front door yesterday.
Customers can now walk into Faber’s Rug Co. from the street. The company expanded to 19 Central St., the space where Thunder Sports used to be. Thunder closed in December. "We always wanted a proper front door right on the street," said owner Tom Faber in a e-mailed statement. "The expanded space gives us the opportunity to display carpets so they are easily viewed by our customers." The shop has been in Wellesley for 58 years.

There’s some construction next door, but what there’s no sign of movement at the old store.
The old Whole Foods location—278 Washington St.—has been vacant since the new one moved in just up the road in August. This town seems only big enough for one Whole Foods, and residents are happy it’s the brand new, state of the art mega store next to the Hunnewell Fields. There has been some construction lately next to the old location, but the old Whole Foods remains empty. What would you like to see in this location? Another grocer, perhaps? A restaurant? Maybe even—gasp—another bank? Let us know in the comments.
