Commercial space on the Route 110 corridor opens the possibility.
With space cleared for development on the Route 110 corridor, opinions are flying on what kind of businesses should move in. Whole Foods has been mentioned -- especially in social media circles -- though no firm plans are in place. Sometimes I don’t have strong opinions either way about the Mom’s Talk question of the week, but this week, I can answer with a resounding “OH YEAH!” Why would I like to see a Whole Foods in Westford?
