What's Moving in at Fruit of the Four Seasons?

This week, we answered a question sent in by a reader who was curious about a commercial space on Atlantic Avenue.

Every week we set out to answer a question submitted by one of our readers as part of our column.

On Wednesday, we received an email from a local resident who was curious about the former home of on Atlantic Avenue.

They asked: "I've enjoyed reading your stories about the new businesses that are coming to Marblehead. Would you mind looking into what's going on at The Fruit of the Four Seasons? There's a sign on the building that says 'sale pending.' What kind of business is moving in? When can we expect them?"


According to Coldwell Banker agent Chesley Perkins, who is overseeing the sale, the building is expected to be officially sold to an investing group sometime next week.

The group, he said, is planning a complete overhaul of the building's interior.

"They're going to be rehabbing everything on the inside," Perkins said. "The plan is to redesign the inside of the building to make it more upscale."

As for what kind of business is moving in, Perkins said it is too early to tell, though he did admit it will likely go quickly if the location is put on the market. 

"It's a very desirable location," Perkins said. "We should be passing papers on the building next week and (the investors) may open something up or end up renting the space once it is ready." 

What kind of business would you like to see move in? Is there something you think would thrive at that location? Let us know in the comments section below.

If you have a question for us, not matter how strange it may seem, let us know and we'll try to find the answers.

Did "Fruit of the Four Seasons" move or close?! It is shocking to me that so many Marblehead businesses are going out of business. It's ridiculous ... seems like people are just plain throwing in the towel rather than fight to keep their business open.

A fresh seafood market would be great.

I hope that the new building design has some Marblehead character instead of just an office type brick building. Marblehead doesn't look like Marblehead anymore.
