It's like a creeping sickness: as more stores close there, the less motivated I am to even bother entering their parking lot (which I actually prefer to the one in Natick). SO sad that the wonderful toy store is closing, though- hope they find a new home in Newton!

It does feel a little like the empty college dorm hall after everyone's left for Christmas vacation, but I like the stores there —Restoration Hardware, Anthropologie, etc. I really hope they find the resurrection formula.

It's a It's such a beautiful space, I really hope something clicks and merchants start to make their way back into the mall.

Maybe the new shopping center down the way and the Wegman's will revitalize it. It's a long time to wait, but I can't imagine what ELSE would go into that space other than a mall, and they can't even begin to think about putting something else in until Chestnut Hill Square is all done and up and running.
