An update on F/NR and Beyond Retail

I thought it was about time for an update over here as I've updated the main pages, and it was also about time to move the large derriere a bit lower on the page. But I wanted to answer the question that I've received in a number of e-mails.

As you may have noticed, site updates are a lot less frequent then they once were. There are several reasons for this.
  1. The Natick Collection is open. What was the biggest event to hit MetroWest retail happened September 7, 2007. Since then, there really hasn't been a lot of news other than store openings. Now, with word that the mall isn't seeing the success that was anticipated largely due to the state of the economy, there's probably going to be a stalemate of retail openings at the mall and across MetroWest as retailers wait it out.
  2. I am no longer a year-round MetroWest resident. While I am here during the summer, I am a college student halfway across the country, which makes it harder - though not impossible - to stay connected to what's happening along Route 9, Route 30, and Speen Street. So I do ask, if you catch anything suspicious going on, please send an e-mail my way. I'm sure the readers of the site would really appreciate it.
Don't worry, the website isn't going anywhere. And since this is the summer, I do hope to keep the news section more updated for now. And if breaking news tips ever arrive in my e-mail, I will make it a priority to post them - things like the abrupt Sam's Club closure, which Framingham/Natick Retail had details on before the mainstream media. But for the more typical mall updates, they might not be posted that day. Thanks to everyone for your understanding, and please do keep checking back for updates.
