The storefront at the corner of Clinton, Cantrell, Markham and Cumberland (can there be an intersection anywhere like it?) has brown paper covering the windows and a sign saying LEASED, so we asked Moses Tucker realtor John Martin what gives.

Watch this space for full details. All Martin will say today is that it will be a “modern general store. Will be very cool.” He’ll issue a press release Thursday.


Ten Thousand Villages, a fair-trade store that sold textiles, furnishings and other household items, and jewelry was the last occupant of the space. A new coffee shop, Nexus, will open this summer next door on Clinton Avenue; Nexus has also applied for a wine and beer permit.
