Bickford's - Nashua...getting torn down?

Anyone know what's going on....or going in....where Bick's is on Amherst St? It's surrounded by fencing and it looks like it's getting torn down.

  1. I don't know what they're doing but it looks more like a renovation than a tear down. I would think if they were taking it down they would've gotten down to business already.

      When I saw they scaled back to limited hours, I had said, thats the kiss of death..saw the construction/staging area alittle over a week back and hopefully it's the end for that dinosaur.

    2. It's being "Burrito-fied"...Chipotle is coming! Certainly a better option than Bickford's ;).

          Oooooh nice. Though I'm still wishing for a Popeyes. :(

            Ha there really no Popeye's in NH? Guess I never really thought about it.

            Honest to goodness...they have a little sign up on the fence by the side street. And yes, the other one opened about 2 years ago, but really those two areas of Nashua might as well be separate towns. You either go to DW Highway to shop, or you go to 101 to shop. With the new Target, the Amherst Wal-Mart and shops, and Whole Foods possibly on 101 that area can be pretty busy too.

            great...another place i won't eat....

          4. Chipotles only taking up 1/2 the bldg. other half looks like it's being fitted for eats too.
            True there are no Popeyes in NH.

              Oh good lord don't get my hopes up. Every time I see an empty space on Amherst St I PRAY for that.
