Lord's Department Store A Piece of Medfield MA Americana

Recent real estate transactions are changing the landscape of Medfield and we are still not sure how that will look.    The one thing we do know is that the streets of Medfield will take on a new look as some of our old favorites move out and new business move in.

In recent times we have seen the familiar "Friendly's" close down and end up vacant.    The iconic brick building on the corner of 109 and route 27 once a favorite meeting spot for teens and adults alike has fallen victim to the changing economy and now sits vacant.   There is quite a bit of speculation over what will land in that spot, but at this time, if anyone knows, they are keeping it to themselves.

Another Medfield landmark    ("go down 109 and make the turn at the Mobil station")  the Mobil station at North and Main has been for sale as well.   Located in the historic district, this prime piece of Medfield real estate will for sure change the flavor and the landscape of the town center, hopefully for the better.  

But, most of all, is the recent news that Lord's has been sold.   It is still a secret as to what is going to occupy the building, but for sure Medfield is loosing not just a retail store but a piece of Medfield Americana.   I remember most mornings grabbing a cup of joe at the "soda fountain."  A lunch counter where familiar faces sat on old fashioned stools and gossiped while having coffee, breakfast or lunch.    Lord's was the place to go to find anything from toys to candles, cards and sweatshirts sporting the spirit of Medfield.  

Yes, Medfield is certainly going through some changes but with it's fabulous location on route 109 and 27, it's downtown real estate is a valued commodity.    Many businesses will look to take advantage of these commercial opportunities and I trust that the town officials will deal with the delicate balance of preserving the town's quintessential New England feel and allowing these new businesses the leeway to make the changes needed to run their businesses here.  

Medfield town center and it's business community has always been a source of pride for Medfield residents.  We will grow to love and support these new businesses but will not forget the old.
