I wonder what the Boylston Street space will become next. It had better not be wasted on yet another bank — or the city's largest nail salon! Maybe it will house another interesting, irresistible store that I will spend countless happy hours exploring... fingers crossed.So, fellow shoppers, I have news. I spoke to a workman in overalls today, as he was unlocking the door, and he told me it's going to be a Capital One Bank. Even he rolled his eyes and said, "Just what you want around here. Another bank."
How disappointing. What a waste of an excellent multi-level retail space, on a street that could use more clothing and housewares shops and already has plenty of banks.
I'm about to head out to the grand opening event for the new Anthropologie on Newbury. More on that later, at least if it's a hit.
