Closed Again ?

Why does The new Market Resturant keep closing? I know The Busy Bee went under in part due to the parking and neighborhood problems. Hope the same issues are not affecting The Market. It has only been open a few months but has closed for periods a number of times already. The owners are great and the food good. Anyone know what's the story?

Re: Closed Again ?

I heard that the Inspection Services at City Hall were giving them a hard time. Ruth Clay, Paul Johnson or both? Issues seem to be centered around seating and no bathrooms. I feel sorry for the owners who should have been told from the beginning that this building structure would only support a take-out business. They probably wouldn't have chosen this location, if the communication from city officials was clear and the laws explained to them.

Good ol' Ruth! What a gal!

Re: Closed Again ?

Anyone with ANY knowledge of the process required to get a common victualler's license would know that it is impossible for the City to issue one without all of the rules and regulations spelled out and complied with.

After the "Alcohol Changes" are voted in by our BOA, the space can be turned into a package store.

Re: Closed Again ?

Another place is about to open at 1 Hurd Street....Hope they make it......Busy Bee and The Market didn't last. The problems with parking, drugs and neighborhood deterioration have sunk the other businesses.

Re: Closed Again ?

Cumulus Vapors is doing so splendidly that they are going in front of The Traffic Commission to get approval to extend parking time. At least 3 other business failed in that location and it was hard to rent because of the neighborhood. But School Superintendent Bob finally found a winning industry which has added such value to the neighborhood!

Mad Cakes closed for good, too. It lasted only 9 months!

Re: Closed Again ?

Formerly known as Heavenly Licks, Mad Cake Genius, and Caruso's are now the three main store fronts that are empty. These places like are city should be thriving. Any thoughts as to what could go into these places to keep them in business?

Re: Closed Again ?

how about a bail bondsman at Heavenly Licks site?

Re: Closed Again ?

Or a pawn shop?

Re: Closed Again ?

Or a marijuana dispensary??

Re: Closed Again ?

The Caruso's site can be used as a Hillary campaign headquarters

Re: Closed Again ?

I suggest her headquarters being that outside phone booth just on the side of Caruso site - that's about the interest there will be once the FBI recommends her prosecution for her email debacle.The democrats have a real choice - a socialist/communist or a soon to be indicted felon. Wow - talk about a turn to the left!

Re: Closed Again ?

You REALLY don't want us to start on Trump, do you?

Re: Closed Again ?

Combo of bail bondsman, pawnshop, western union for Heavenly Licks. Marijuana for the vape store. Head shop for the rat infested bakery.

Is number one Hurd St. what used to be a hardware store in the sixties? It was right next to the railroad tracks. I have not been back to Melrose for many years. I used to work at Tedson's Market on the corner of Hurd and W, Wyoming Ave.

Edited to read:
Actually my description was not correct. The corner of Hurd St was a drug store, then Tedson's Market on the W. Wyoming side, beside this there was a small dry cleaner and then a bakery. Perhaps number one Hurd St. is what used to be the drug store? I don't know which way the numbers run there.

Re: Closed Again ?

When will they just smarten up and build a condo clearly a business cannot survive there. Rumor has it condos or apartments are going in at 10 Corey St. where the invention factory used to be. If the only way to clean up that neighborhood is to put high-end apartments or condos there I'm all for it.

Bakeries need bathrooms. Condos don't. They can go out back. http://assets.bravenet.com/common/images/forum/icons/set16.gif
