  1. We may all agree with Suzy, but like Michael D said, they might be the only ones to afford the rent. I was really
    hoping a Hardware Store would go in, which we need desperately. Charlestown Ace Hardware Store was looking to go in on Salem St. until there was a change of plans to divide the True Value space into 3 separate rentals.
    I heard this, don’t know how true it is, but what a great loss.

  2. I agree Joan, a bank is not the most attractive face to have at the entrance to the North End ( no offence Chase, I am a customer) and a Harware Store like the Salem St. TrueVaule would be a better choice. Unfortunately the hardware on Fleet St. didn’t expand to fill in the gap. It appears that walk in business such as restaurants, cafes, fashion and gift shops haven’t had much luck there. It appear that only destination businesses such as banks and hard ware stores could make enough to deal with the ever increasing rents. Hope someone comes up with a good idea.
