The Word Around the Ward
Magoun Square lost a storefront this month as the tailor/dry cleaner left their space at 503A Medford Street. This service was a part of a business surge experienced by Magoun in the past two years and offered affordable tailoring and dry cleaning prices. The storefront is now available for rent should anyone know of a business looking for space.
Davis Square wasn't the only restaurant destination-place to see raises in taxes. A couple of Magoun Square businesses also saw increases, although, manageable. How was your tax bill this year? Was the decimal in the place you thought it was going to be?
How did everyone survive the snow yesterday? The common consensus is that the DPW is doing a great job clearing the streets, especially, compared to surrounding cities. Please feel free to comment your thoughts below!
