I miss Volz hardware store

I agree with Dave B.! Volz was an iconic part of Westwood for anyone who grew up there! The nicest people in a time before Big Box stores put this kind of business out of business.

I think Westwood can use a Candy Store, the one that you go in fill up your own bags of candy and then pay, or a Body lotion store. It's something we don't have in town and both these stores seem to do well wherever they open!

I know! ANOTHER Italian restaurant... or another nail salon. Because lord knows there aren't enough of either of THOSE types of businesses in our little borough! ;)

It's too bad timing wasn't better, this would have been a good spot for the CVS instead of building that McMansion where the diner used to be.

Ooof, that was a bad one... Corrected. Thanks for the heads-up.

I agree Lisa. Also, Westwood is woefully lacking BANKS. There are only about 7 or 8 at the present.

Something similar to the Nut Shop that used to be on Westwood Ave.

How about the Nut Shop coming back period! Wasn't it high rent that drove them out? - These property owners are driving away businesses with their greed. Isn't it better to have a paying renter than an empty store?

I alwasy enjoyed going to California Farms in Emerson and would welcome a similar type of store in Westwood.
