nice article tho I think they may be putting a bit too much blame on the bike riding latte drinking folk of Somerville for the decline in their kind of business.Nice write-up on a small family business. This was, of course, inevitable. Mazel tov to them on their windfall!
I think with that, Boynton Yards controls all of the land in "Boynton Yards", more or less. Time to realign some streets (make South Street a real street and extend it to Webster)! Only Taza shall survive.
I've lived around the corner from them for 15 years and always have second hand cars. I ended up buying spare parts online about 10 years ago. (pure convenience)
Cars, even second hand ones, are also a lot less DIY maintainable these days.
Anyway, good run, great return for them, and I'll be happy to see the back of another junk yard.
Ironically tho, what replaces it may bring more car congestion to the area.
in fact, I cant imagine how snarled the area around Union will be in 5 years.
apologies for the rambling!
