Timberland to open on Boston Newbury Street store

The Boston Herald reports today that Timberland will be opening a store this year at 201 Newbury Street. Those with longer memories will recall that Timberland had a flagship store in Boston, but it closed 12 years ago. A spokeswoman for New Hampshire-based Timberland said spreading the word of the opening may be “premature” — but that’s not a denial. A friend of a friend went to Russia soon after the fall of the Soviet Union and asked an American already living in Russia what he could bring in terms of clothing/goods that he could use as valuable barter. He was thinking jeans, of course, or high-fashion sunglasses. Nope, his friend told him, bring Timberland shoes or boots.
