Does anybody remember what the name of the grocery store was that used to be in the Clarendon Whole Foods building? I think it was called Bread + something or other.

Bread & Circus opened in 95 I believe, where the Sears garden center was. It was an upscale Boston grocery chain. The Clarendon Sears closed the year before.

I've been told the Clarendon and Tenleytown (DC) Sears locations were both very profitable for the company, but the chain chose to focus on its larger shopping mall stores as it restructured. If only Sears could've predicted the resurgence of urban retail...
