1. The Superfresh in the Longwood shopping center has a giant banner saying "Closing." That was quick! The store is being shuttered as part of the bankruptcy filing of its parent company, A&P. No word on who the new tenant will be. When I stopped in on Sunday evening, there were very few patrons and the shelves were still pretty well stocked. Discounts varied but were mostly 10% off.
|Discounts are offered throughout the store.|
|Goodbye to the Superfresh supermarket.|
2. Part of Newark Road between the Route 1 bypass and Route 926 are being repaved, including the infamous "S-curve" near Archie's in West Marlborough. The roadway is temporarily lacking its center and edge lines, but there are raised yellow reflectors indicating where the center stripes should be. I'm assuming they are temporary.
3. A tractor-trailer demolished a utility pole along Route 842 east of Byrd Road in East Marlborough on Thursday afternoon. No one was hurt, but nearby residents lost power. Crews were on the scene that evening to install a new pole. That area is quite marshy, and it will take a while for the muddy ruts to fill in.
