With the acquisition of Mays department stores, I am curious to know if anyone knows if the Belmont Filenes will change names to Macy's or just simply be shut down (hope not). I am not sure if this Filenes is located in this close in upscale suburbs downtown as nostalgia are if really is doing well financially. Since only a few of Boston's suburban downtown have national or regional retailers located in authentic downtown locations, I find the sentimental value of this store important for the entire area. I believe Portsmouth N.H. is the only other suburban downtown to have national/regional retailers located in their beautiful and nostalgic downtown. Any feedback would be appreciated.
