The Charles Street Market, a convenience store that was spared from being replaced by a bank, has found a possible new storefront in Beacon Hill.
Tracy Hollander, the owner of Charles Street Market at 66 Charles St., hopes to move the store across the street to 39 Charles Street, where the Charles Street Laundromat now stands, according to a proposal filed with the cityís Inspection Services Department.
Hollander almost had to close the market after new landlord raised rents and proposed replacing the shop with a Capital One bank branch, but the store was was allowed to stay at its current location after residents rallied against the proposed bank.
Hollander, however, has told the Beacon Hill Civic Association he is currently operating without a lease and does no believe he and the landlord, Linear Retail, will be able to reach an agreement.
The association has scheduled a meeting for Wednesday, April 4, at 7:30 p.m. to hear Hollanderís proposal to move and determine whether it will support a zoning variance the market needs to open. The meeting is open to the public and will take place at 74 Joy St.
