Boston Market at Fourth Street and 38th Avenue N closes

The Boston Market at 3740 Fourth St. N has closed after 20 years of baked chicken and hot sides. Chase Bank bought the land and Boston Market couldn't renew the lease, according to Nicole Raia, manager of the Boston Market at 9594 Fourth St. N. Property records don't reflect a change in ownership. A Chase spokesman could not be reached for comment. But it apears the southwest corner of the busy intersection may be coming full circle. A SouthTrust bank operated there before the restaurant. Boston Market, originally Boston Chicken, brought new life to poultry in August 1993. Suddenly people were lining up to get not a bucket of fried, but a plate of rotisserie chicken at Boston Chicken and competing concepts around the country.
