There have been a few emails coming in asking what is being built at the northeast corner of Wards Corner. The BP station was torn down from that location last year and they are currently building a new retail store that will house a Mattress Firm.
The likely tenant type was mentioned at the Wards Corner Civic League meeting in March of 2014 and most comments were negative as there was already a mattress store at Wards Corner. That store was, and still is, Sleepy’s.
Since that time, The Original Mattress Factory announced they will be opening in Wards Corner as well. They plan a March 2015 opening date and are currently under construction in the Midtown Shopping Center at the northeast corner.
