Barnes & Noble_235 Daniel Webster Hwy Nashua, NHThe Real Reporter- NASHUA, NH — And now there is one—owner, that is, of all four retail properties at what Linear Retail Partners principal William J. Beckeman deems “arguably the best intersection in all of Nashua,” and if so, that is good news for his Burlington, MA-based operation that just paid $12 million to secure the Barnes & Noble Bookstore at 235 Daniel Webster Highway, complementing three other assets assembled over the past decade where Spit Brook Road converges with DWH.

“It fills out the corner nicely for us,” Beckeman tells Real Reporter in the wake of an all-cash deal that completes the four-piece puzzle at that light and brings Linear’s overall Nashua portfolio to seven properties. “It’s a great fit fot us,” Beckeman says in stating the obvious that, “we like Nashua a lot” even as the firm’s expanding fiefdom of convenience-oriented retail stretching from New Hampshire to Rhode Island and now at 80 assets overall continues to expand in other markets, with 2015 an especially active season on the acquisitions front, that group led by Aubrey Cannuscio.
