Foodie's Markets to Open in Belmont Center
A small local group of grocery stores is getting ready to expand again, with a new one coming to the western suburbs of Boston.
A check on the Leonard Street space in Belmont Center where Macy's had been shows that "coming soon" signs are now up for Foodie's Markets, confirming an earlier article from Wicked Local Belmont that said the market would be moving into a 15,000-square-foot part of the space. It appears that other retailers will also be moving into the old Macy's space, though none have apparently been announced as of yet. A location of Filene's had also been in the space before Macy's.
Foodie's Markets can currently be found in Boston's South End along with South Boston and Duxbury.
The address for this upcoming market in Belmont Center is: Foodie's Markets, 75 Leonard Street, Belmont, MA, 02478. The website for Foodie's can be found at http://foodiesmarkets.com/
[August 30, 2016 update: There had been some question as to whether plans for Foodie's to come to Belmont had fallen through, as the signs for it at the site have come down, but a new article from Wicked Local Belmont mentions that is is indeed still on the way, and that it will share its space with an upcoming bookstore called Belmont Books.]
[April 20, 2017 update: The Belmont Citizen-Herald states that Foodie's will finally open its Belmont location in mid-May.]
