What West Roxbury Business Were You Sad to See Close in 2012?

Businesses come and go, which ones were you sad to see leave West Roxbury in 2012?


Thankfully, West Roxbury's commercial districts are doing well - and you can read about the bright days ahead here.

But like anyplace in the world, businesses come and go. The reasons for closure vary just as much as businesses do.

This year West Roxbury said goodbye to several businesses including Timothy's Coffee - we barely knew you, Timothy.

One of my personal favorites that I was sad to see close was My Pinata. I've always appreciated the mother-and-daughter pair of Luisa and Maria Luisa Plasencia, both West Roxbury residents.

It's always sad to see a business close, which is a reminder that we must keep spending locally if we want to ensure their viability. we lost a great neighbor in Sherike when GC Skate closed.

I know that they didn't close in 2012 but I will always be sad about the loss of Decelle's and Value Village.

I also am sad about the loss of Imagine That. Anna and Mary Willhite were great business people and even greater friends to the community. Again, they didn't close in 2012 but they, along with Decelle's and Value Village and other long term businesses.,were important businesses in the area that drew customers from far and wide.

I never got to try Fresh Catch to Go and I really did want to.
