The owner of Russo’s & Sons Market responded to rumors and said there are no plans to close the the destination market and garden store in Watertown.
The rumors of Russo’s closing surfaced over the weekend, and spread online. Principal owner Tony Russo said he heard about them, but said there is no truth to them.
“We’re not closing,” Russo said. “We have no immediate plans to sell the stand.”
The store recently expanded the building 560 Pleasant St.
“We made a huge commitment,” Russo said. “Hopefully we will be in business here for a long time.”
Russo’s grandfather started the store in the 1920s on Lexington Street, before it moved to its current site.
