They're slowly expanding their footprint in the Boston area. Stores already open in Attleboro, Brockton, Dedham, Framingham, Marlborough, Westborough, Peabody (Northsore Mall), Burlington (Burlington Mall), Plymouth and Methuen. As mentioned Hanover is under construction and they were approved for a location in Walpole, but it doesn't look like any construction is happening. The stores are usually pretty busy, so it doesn't seem like people either know, or care about the stance of the corporation.

If anyone is interested in carrying on the Chick-Fil-A/Late-stage Capitalism Malaise conversation I moved it to General here. Carry on with new retail.

The venerable Brookline Booksmith looks to be expanding into the corner space on the far end of its block from Coolidge Corner, into the storefront formerly occupied by Peet's Coffee. Tentatively it looks like they are keeping the coffee bar in place, moving the used books into this new space, and (I would guess) increasing capacity for events held in their cellar space. Source: walking by it and seeing it packed with workers and books.

Please no, Walburgers is hot garbage
seconded. tasty burger is the king of boston fast casual burgers. in addition to tasting better, they're actually from boston -- shake shack is good, but not as good and it's a frickin NYC chain. it *can't* be king of anything boston. uburger - meh...
