An Arizona-based chain of frozen yogurt shops that rapidly expanded into the Boston area several years ago continues to disappear from the local landscape, as yet another location has shut down.
A Twitter post from @CopleyScott17 confirms what a couple of sources told us earlier, that Pinkberry at the Prudential Center in the Back Bay is no longer in business. This is one of a number of Pinkberry shops to close in the local area, including another outlet in the Back Bay as well as stores in the North End, Beverly, Cambridge, Chestnut Hill, Hingham, Lynnfield, Somerville, and Wellesley. Currently, the only remaining locations can be found at South Station, Boston University, Logan Airport, and Braintree.
The first Boston-area location of Pinkberry opened at the Derby Street Shoppes in Hingham in the summer of 2010.
The website for the Pinkberry chain can be found at http://www.pinkberry.com/
