If you are looking to do a little shopping, there are many malls and shopping centers to choose from. There is the Solomon Pond Mall featuring Macy's and JCPenney. In Auburn, we have the Auburn Mall that also has a Macy's and Sears. If you are looking for more upscale stores like Neiman Marcus and Nordstrom, try the newly updated Natick Mall Collection.
About 40 miles away are the Wrentham Village Premium Outlets with close to 200 stores, including the Eddie Bower Outlet, Sony Outlet and the Banana Republic Outlet, just to name a few. Recently, Northborough Crossing opened, with a number of new stores, including the first Wegmans in Massachusetts. They are currently expanding the plaza to include more restaurants, stores and an urgent care facility. In 2018, Shrewsbury opened up the new Lakeway Commons, which includes a Whole Foods Market, Starbucks, Massage Envy, Jenny Boston Boutique, Orangetheory Fitness, as well as multiple restaurants, apartments, townhouses, and other retail stores.
