We can check one of the Ten Businesses to Bring Back to the Quincy/Hannibal Area off the list. In fact, the very first business named.

Less than a week after mentioning Ben Franklin as a former business that I wouldn't mind seeing re-open, WGEM reported that Ben Franklin will be returning to Quincy. Talk about timing.

According to the report, Ben Franklin will open this spring on Maine Street, across from the Butcher Block, in the location that currently houses Griffen Performance Center. Griffen Performance Center is moving to a new location on Broadway and will be renamed Full Throttle Parts.

Ben Franklin is a craft supply store that had been in business in Quincy for decades on Broadway. The former Ben Franklin building was sold to Walgreens, which demolished the building and replaced it with their current Quincy store in 2012.
