Is Waltham Getting Another Tedeschi Store?

Do you want another Tedeschi store in Waltham?

It appears as though Waltham will soon be home to another Tedeschi's conveinience store. 

According to city records, Tedeschi has been issued a building permit for 131 Lexington St., the site of the former Hollywood Video. Also, that same permit record appeared in the window of the site on Wednesday, Dec. 5.

This would be the city's third Tedeschi. Two other locations are on Moody Street and High Street.

Ah, TheHam, self-appointed defender on the Patch, unless of course you do not look like him or speak his language--because then he will immediately label you as an illegal immigrant and treat you like dirt.

Catch - What is your actual proof that these restaurants hire illegal aliens? Or do you think that anyone who looks or talks differently than you is an illegal alien? Do you suppose that some workers from other countries have green cards? Or have gotten their citizenship?

The really sad part of many of the above comments expressed is that when several expressed concerns over the loss of another business which wanted to come into our city. A call was put out asking for citizen involvement to be instrumental in the decision process from the inside. Guess what? Not a single response! A second request went out again. Again Not a single response! Lots of free speech being exercised on a variety of issues, but seems no willing to do the work to make a change!! Again... How Sad!! Waltham could use some changes to assist all its citizens!!

Rumor has it that In A Pickle wanted to take that spot but was rejected citing "too much traffic". It just goes to show you have to have a lot of money behind you or a few City Councilor's in your pocket. Demo's would never let another restaurant open so close and that little convenience store next door doesnt have the resources to fight. A Tedeschi's isnt needed and the little convenience store will soon be going out of business. Its a good thing that a store like Tedeschi's doesnt generate any traffic.
