Homsy's Closed!

It is with a heavy heart that I announce what it took me 1/2 of battling Rt.1 traffic today to discover....HOMSY'S IS CLOSED!!!!! Dark and empty, with closed signs on it...

Seems the move to a much bigger space last year did them in, way too overextended for the business. There's nowhere close for spices, where you can go and see and touch and SMELL, because everything was in bulk, from huge jars, so you could let your nose compare the different blends, and buy as little or as much as you needed...

Sure, there are the Watertown stores, but they just stock the Armenian spice necesssities...The Indian groceries just do Indian, and they're pre-packaged....There's Polcari's, but their selection isn't even close to what Homsy's was; Indian, Middle-eastern, Southwestern, Cajun, spice blends,toppings for pita, spice boils---they usually had things I didn't know existed...

I'm bummed. Yeah, I know there's Penzy's, but going to Homsy's was an event...Is there anything in the area I don't know about, that sells such a huge selection by measure?
