The Franklin, MA Planning Board has approved construction of a Big Y World Class Market in Franklin, Massachusetts. After hearings stretching back to early 2010, the Board this week granted the special permit and site plan approval needed before construction of the supermarket could get underway.
New life to a vacant site
The food super-store will be located at 348 East Central Street, Franklin, MA, site of several eateries over the past few decades, including the old Welick’s Restaurant.
The existing structure had sat vacant for years, becoming an eyesore.
There had been speculation that Market Basket might be eyeing the site, but Big Y secured rights to the location.
More jobs and competition
It has been estimated that, when it opens in 2012, the new Big Y in Franklin will add between 150 and 175 jobs to the Franklin, MA economy.
