Change afoot in historic Concord Center
Tags: , , ,

The Main Street area has been hit by vacancies, but new tenants are around the corner.
By Nancy Shohet West, Oct. 06, 2017

Boston Globe – Shoppers strolling the well-maintained sidewalks of Concord Center always find plenty to look at as they pass by the inviting shops: jewelry, fine art, stationery, gourmet food, sporting goods, books by authors both local and international.

But recently the view has also included something that was far less common in previous years: empty windows.

At least three prominent storefronts in the Main Street area are currently vacant, including the iconic building at the west corner of Main and Walden that for years housed The Toy Shop of Concord. Just a few blocks away on Thoreau Street stands another empty storefront across from the train station, with La Provence now shuttered.
