Our roundup of the latest Natick, Mass. business news:
Pot shop finalists
Natick has whittled down the list of eight applicants to open recreational marijuana shops in town to three, which will now have a chance to spin their stories in public meetings at times to be determined.
The final 3 are:
C3 (42 Worcester St.): Public meeting Sept. 21
Cypress Tree (321 Speen St., at Cloverleaf Mall): Public meeting Sept. 24
Revolutionary Clinics (6 Worcester St., currently Nine East Wine Emporium): Public meeting Sept. 17
Once the finalists are selected, it will probably be spring before all licensing is settled and shops can open.
Separately, a medical marijuana facility called Bountiful Farms and a testing lab called Kaycha Labs seek to open in Natick.
Neiman Marcus closing at mall
The retailer filed for Chapter 11 bankruptcy protection in May as the COVID-19 crisis sunk in.
The Mall has been losing tenants left and right. Among the others: the Microsoft Store, Lord & Taylor, and Sears.
One sign of hope is a plan for Night Shift Brewing and a newcomer called Level 99 to join forces in opening an immersive gaming (and drinking) establishnent.
