The printer that has helped residents, local businesses and politicians, alike, is leaving Magoun Square after decades of being in business.
For Sale signs now adorn the Piro Printers business and three family home located at 483 Medford Street. This comes just 6 months after the business relocated in Charlestown combining with another print shop (AB Printing) that, according to Marc Piro, "is more modern and streamlined."
"Magoun Square has been very good to my family," said Piro when I spoke to him on the phone. "I'm learning new things with newer and more modern machinery."
Marc Piro has run the business for many years providing print services that included wedding invitations, business cards, political signage and campaign literature for local politicians. It was through Piro that I had my yard signs, palm cards, lapel and bumper stickers made when I ran for Alderman last year.
At this time, no price has been set for the property, however, a phone number and email address is provided on the sign for potential buyers.
Although saddened to see the property up for sale, I hope this gives Marc and his family an opportunity to move on to bigger and better adventures. I wish him the best of luck and thank him for his years of service to the Somerville community.
