Tags: , , , ,

Real Reporter Boston – Millennials are said to be loathe to brick-and-mortar retailing, but at least one stylish constituent of that generation is embracing a physical approach via her boutique women’s clothing store that recently opened right next to tony Newbury Street at a Linear Retail condominium. Founder Jiaming “Annie” Li’s vision is on display in 700 sf at 222 Clarendon St. where she offers a line of apparel featuring a Chinese theme. As for the old-school approach to pitching her wares, Li maintains “our store has many advantages” over an online platform.

“Here, I can interact with the customers and be sure to help them find what they need for any occasion,” she explains. “They can touch and feel the silkiness in products and pair them in person with accessories. We are known for having ultra-soft and cozy materials which our customers adore and items that are not mass-produced.”

Abbott’s Frozen Custard coming to Lexington Center
Tags: , ,

Wicked Local – By Heather Beasley Doyle

Thinking ahead to Patriots’ Day, if you venture out to the Lexington parade, you might want to take along a little extra cash—and some space in your stomach, too. If all goes as planned, Abbott’s Frozen Custard will open its first Lexington store in mid-April, “before Patriots’ Day,” according to franchise owner and Lexington resident Jason Denoncourt.

Abbott’s will move into the space at 1853 Mass. Ave. vacated in the summer of 2015 by Candy Castle, which had been there for more than three decades. The frozen custard establishment will be Abbott’s third in Massachusetts.

Construction on the location, owned by Linear Retail, should begin this week, Denoncourt said. It should take about six to eight weeks. From there, he plans to “hire staff and get it all up and running.” For now, the store’s windows are plastered with images of frozen custard cones and the Abbott’s logo, concealing the interior of the space.
