Jimmy John's to Open in Salem
An Illinois-based chain of gourmet sandwich shops is further expanding into the Boston area, this time opening its first location on the North Shore.
According to a source, Jimmy John's is planning to open in Salem, with a Craigslist job post indicating that it will be opening on Lafayette Street on the southern edge of the downtown area. Once it opens (possibly this month), the new shop will join others in Boston (D Street in South Boston, Park Drive by Audubon Circle, Valenti Way near North Station, and Western Avenue in Allston-Brighton) and South Braintree, with another location possibly coming to Waltham at some point.
John's first started out in Charleston, IL in 1983.
The address for this upcoming sandwich shop in Salem is: Jimmy John's, 135 Lafayette Street, Salem, MA, 01970. The website for the chain can be found at https://www.jimmyjohns.com/
