I am sorry to see them close. I am a regular customer. The gentleman that ran the place always went out of his to be helpful and courteous, something that lacks these days at many businesses. I wish him luck with his new venture.

The shell by the library has been closed for a while now. I think they had a fire??? That may be why the prices posted outside may seem high. When they were open, they had the same prices as the Shell down by Pike street.

Triple A used that station for towing and jump starting cars. Will they still provide that service through Triple A?

Well M&S never really had many customers outside of the repair shop. It would have been best for them to move to their new location when that intersection was being redone. Now we have a bad intersecetion and an abandoned gas station.

if the property is owned by mobil, they charge extremely high rents to their tenants. I am guessing it will be more cost effective to run his towing business and repair service else where.

Tune Town is long gone. Hopeful, AVID hangs in there.

Avid shares sink on disappointing results
Email|Print| Text size – + April 25, 2008 12:36 PM

Shares of Avid Technology Inc. of Tewksbury sunk today, a day after the multimedia software developer fell to a loss in the first-quarter and widely missed Wall Street expectations, and two analysts urged investors to unload their shares.

After the bell yesterday, the company reported a loss of $21.1 million, or 54 cents per share, compared with a profit of $20,000 a year ago. Excluding one-time items, Avid said it lost 30 cents per share in the quarter.

Analysts polled by Thomson Financial expected, on average, a per-share profit of 6 cents.

Revenue decreased 9 percent to $198.3 million from $218.9 million, in the year-ago period, and fell short of Wall Street's target of $216.3 million in sales.

In a note to investors, titled "When Directionless, Time is Not a Friend," Kaufman Bros. analyst Barbara Coffey backed her "Sell" rating and $15 target price on the company. That price target projects the stock will decline 39 percent over the next year.

The analyst pointed out that its revenue decreased in all its business segments except its consumer video division, which saw revenue growth of 13 percent.

In their conference call, management said it is conducting a strategic review, and would announce details of the company's new direction and plans in July. Coffey, however, remained skeptical, saying that while Avid reviews its offerings, sales are falling. Meanwhile, Avid has been cutting prices, and the analyst has doubts that its reduced pricing and new products will be able boost sales in an increasingly competitive market.

Likewise, D.A. Davidson analyst L. Alan Davis called Avid's results disappointing and downgraded the stock to "Underperform" from "Neutral," and cut his price target to $20 from $25. The analyst said while he expects sequential improvement throughout the year, the business environment -- particularly for its professional video segment -- appears weaker than he had anticipated.

Avid shares dropped $3.34, or 13.6 percent, to $21.30 in midday trading on the Nasdaq stock market. The stock has lost 36 percent since hitting its 12-month high of $38.78 on April 26, and is off 13 percent since the start of the year. (AP)

Does anyone know what is happening now with the old Mobil Station at the corner of Main and Shawsheen? I saw some heavy equipment and a couple of dumpsters out there today.
