Liquor vote could lure specialty grocery - The Boston Globe:
"WESTWOOD - A New York-based gourmet grocery store could make its first move into the New England market with a superstore in the Westwood Station development.Congratulations Westwood.
Voters agreed to create the town's first liquor license for off-premise consumption solely for Westwood Station, a vote in direct support of Wegmans, a high-end grocery chain with 71 stores, mostly in New York.
Wegmans officials have called Westwood Station a 'bull's-eye' site for the company's move into New England, but also said the ability to sell alcohol would be a critical factor in any decision. The company incorporates the sale of beer and wine in its superstore design and wants to keep the design as it continues to expand.
The town's approval of the license could be the catalyst for luring the grocery chain here, bringing a unique store to a project that is already changing the landscape of Westwood."
Oh, BTW, I bought a whole bunch of beer and wine at Gary's Liquors on Sunday.
