Discount chain Marshalls planning to open in Fenway area

Two-story store in same building as Yard House restaurant

Retail discounter Marshalls plans to open a 30,000 square foot store in Boston’s Fenway area this fall, in the same renovated building that’s home to the new Yard House restaurant. The two-level retail space will have entrances on both Brookline Avenue and Van Ness Street, according to Peter Sougarides, of Samuels & Associates, which is developing the space.

Marshalls is moving into the space formerly occupied by Boston Billards. Samuels & Associates are spending close to $10 million to get the building ready for the chain store, which features discount clothing.

“Part of the master plan is to turn Van Ness into a great retail street,” Sougarides said.
