Does anyone know when the Pushcart will reopen?

I met one of the employees in the Market Basket parking lot a few weeks ago and asked when they will be open. She said it would not be before Christmas and I think there was some doubt they would open at all. They are dealing with the insurance company and the cost to upgrade the kitchen and meet current code requirements like upgrading the rest rooms. I sure hope they come back soon. I didn't realize how much I relied on them until they were gone. I wish they would give us updates on their website.

I talked with the owner today. He says that it looks very unlikely that the Pushcart will be able to reopen. It's too bad.

R.I.P. Pushcart, your Turkey Terrific was a sandwich for the ages. Damn you, bureaucratic red tape!

It's a damn shame that a small business that was actually THRIVING in Tewksbury and for sure filled a unique niche needs to close! :(

Strange how some insurance company's want your business but when you have to put in a claim some of them forget you.

Sorry to hear that they may not be reopening. It was our Saturday lunch choice. We will miss it immensely. It's sad that the small business owner has to face so many challenges.

I am confused...wouldn't restroom upgrades fall on the landlord in a leased space (unless a triple net lease is in place)? Also, what is preventing them from re-opening in another location? There certainly is no shortage of unoccupied space in this town! If it is not in the cards to re-open, it is a real loss to the community. The Pushcart was a unique business that will be sorely missed. They offered a nice departure from the pizza/burger/Chinese circuit. Never had a bad experience there.

We saw on FB that a local family had partnered with the previous owners to re-open.

Not sure how this effort is going but I remain hopeful.

Just saw in on FB. It's true. 2 local families have purchased/are running it. Great people - same recipes. Someone asked about a Nov re-open and the new owners said something like "Maybe not that soon, but during soup season." :)
