In a town filled with gross parking lots, the one formerly known as Shaw’s stands out as particularly fugly. Now mostly empty, it’s even grimmer than usual.
So it’s heartening to see perky new landscaping near the entrance, where Everything Personalized used to squat. It’s not yet finished, and “06880” looks forward to watching this former patch of asphalt grow green.
We’d be happier without Outdoor Design’s self-congratulatory sign. And things will look better still when the vacant Shaw’s reopens as Fresh Market.
But hey. It’s a start. As we learned many times on line at Shaw’s: We can wait.
