Red Sox Seeking Approval To Open Souvenir Shop Outside Fenway
Published January 19, 2010
Red Sox officials are "seeking approval for a retail shop opening onto Van Ness Street near" Fenway Park, according to documents filed with the Boston Landmarks Commission cited by Thomas Grillo of the BOSTON HERALD. The $750,000 project "would put the store under the grandstand and convert three existing garage doors in the exterior brick facade into a street entrance and display windows." The store "would bring increased competition to the four independent souvenir shops around Fenway owned" by Massachusetts-based retailer Twins '47. The Boston Landmarks Commission "will review the proposal Jan. 26" (BOSTON HERALD, 1/19).
