Update: Pinkberry in Somerville's Davis Square Closes, to Be Replaced by Yumi
[ed note: This article was updated to reflect new information given, including confirmation of Pinkberry closing and info on the restaurant replacing it.]
A chain of frozen yogurt shops has closed one of its Boston-area locations.
According to a post in the Davis Square LiveJournal blog, Pinkberry in Somerville's Davis Square is shuttered apparently due to a ceiling collapse caused by flooding in an upstairs apartment. The post mentions (via Reddit) that the shop may be closed until the spring of 2015, though it is possible that it will never reopen, and a call placed to the Elm Street location of Pinkberry hints that this is the case, as its phone number is no longer in service. As soon as we find out more on the exact status of the shop, we will post an update here.
[January 2, 2015 update: A new entry in the Davis Square LiveJournal blog indicates (via a Twitter photo), that the Pinkberry shop on Elm Street is indeed be gone for good, as a sign saying "hot pot & sushi coming soon" has been put up in the window.]
[March 17, 2015 update: Eater Boston mentions (via a Somerville licensing commission page) that the new restaurant coming to Davis Square will be called Yumi.]
Pinkberry first opened in Davis Square in September of 2013.
The address for this now-closed frozen yogurt shop in Davis Square is: Pinkberry, 263 Elm Street, Somerville, MA, 02144. The website for the chain is at http://www.pinkberry.com/
