A suburban retail shop that focused on a popular regional item has shut down.
According to a source, Boston Cream Pie Company in Holbrook is no longer in business, with the windows of the South Franklin Street shop being papered over. Our source tells us that a pub may be taking over the space, though no other information has been given on the proposed spot as of yet, so stay tuned.
Boston Cream Pie Company first opened in Holbrook last summer, with the business originally selling the Boston Cream Pies (along with other pies) from tricycles stationed in Boston. Although the tricycles were still being used when the shop first opened, it is not known if they are still running, and it appears that the website for the company has been taken down.
The address for the now-closed Boston Cream Pie Company shop was 783 S Franklin Street, Holbrook, MA, 02343.
