Pinkberry in Harvard Square Has Closed; Will Be Replaced by Pressed Juicery
A frozen yogurt chain has shut down its shop in Cambridge, and it will be replaced by a location of a chain of cold-pressed juice bars.
The Harvard Crimson is reporting that Pinkberry in Harvard Square is now closed and that Pressed Juicery will be moving into the Mass. Ave. space. The article says that the California-based chain of juice bars hopes to open in the late spring, with the place offering an array of juice options along with a soft-serve item that is made using a mix of fruits, vegetables, and nuts.
Pinkberry--which is also based in California--first opened in Harvard Square in 2011, taking over the space where Alpha Omega Jewelers had once been; a number of Pinkberry shops had been located in the Greater Boston area, but several of them have shut down over the past few years, with existing locations remaining in operation by BU in Boston, South Station, the Pru, Logan Airport, Chestnut Hill, Wellesley, and Braintree.
The address for the now-closed Pinkberry (and upcoming Pressed Juicery) is 1380 Massachusetts Avenue, Cambridge, MA, 02138.
