FRAMINGHAM, MA - I have been lucky enough to be involved with the various parties interested in seeing the Nobscot Shopping Center revitalized, and today had a chance to discuss the center's future with the point-man from the newly hired property management company.

According to Steve, "SuperValu", the parent company of ...[read more]
