What should go into the old Sears building?
The Sears on Main Street in North Reading closed this past summer. What do you think should replace it? According to the store's Spokesperson Kimberly Freely, the store closed because their lease was not renewed. What do you think should go into the large space? Another hardware store? A furniture store? A place like the Christmas Tree Shop? Let us know what you think in the comments section below!
The former Massachusetts Registry location has been vacant since 2007.
The former Registry of Motor Vehicles location on Salem Street in Reading has been vacant since the state moved the local registry branch to Wilmington in 2007. The 17,500 square-foot space at 273-275 Salem St., is just off the highway and is sandwiched between REI and Dunkin’ Donuts. In its flyer about the property, Boylston Realty listed 202 parking spaces and average daily traffic counts of 14,900 vehicles on Salem Street and 153,022 on Route 95/128. So, we want to know – what would you like to go at the former Registry location? Does a department store make sense? How about a bargain store? Or would you rather see it become something else?
