There's a new complex opened up in Wayland town center. It's called Wayland Town Center.
The old Wayland town center is just a big intersection of two big roads.
This Wayland Town Center is anchored by a Stop and Shop and has other stores and restaurants sprinkled through it.
And there's a lot more coming.
We went there Saturday to eat at the Bertucci's. (I had been to the Stop and Shop once before.) There's also a Supercuts open, an Anton's Cleaners, a Subway, Panera Bread, a bank, and a frozen yogurt place (more on that tomorrow).
I saw that there's another restaurant due to open in June - called The Local - as well as a town green (date TBD). I guess they're opening up a green where they can have concerts and such within the same complex.
It's a nice space, and it's been wasted space for a number of years. It's kind of cool to see all of these places popping open, but at the same time you kind of wish everything would open up all at once so you can get an idea what the whole place will end up being like.
It's a convenient location too. For those who don't know, Wayland is about 15 minutes from where I live, Framingham. It's between Sudbury and Weston, and it's convenient to a number of other towns that I don't really know that I have the geographic know-how to list.
It's right off Route 20, if that makes a difference to you as a point of reference.
It's convenient enough for us that we'll check it out every once in a while. It's not going to be our go-to place for a supermarket or a bank or a hair cut or a restaurant.
But it's shaping up to be a pretty nice place to go to.
