It’s a sign of the times! Friday was the last day opened for Perkins Supply/Schubert’s/Dunkin Donuts at Perkins Square in Southie.  This building will be torn down and turned into…..condos!  Schubert’s was in business for nearly 60 years.


A proposal for a new 5-Story building consisting of 18 residential condominium units, with approximately 4,190 square feet of commercial space, served by 21 below-grade off-street parking spaces was approved by the Boston Planning and Development Agency in July. 

This $8.4 million project hopes to start construction in 2017.   Boy, oh boy!

Thanks to Eileen Murphy for tweeting us the photo!

    Hi Maureen, Southie, these days, in unrecognizable! So sad! The deconstruction of Southie, painful! Growing up in Dorchester, this happened to us too! I miss Maude Mango too! :-(

    Schubert’s has been there for over well 60 years. I remember working the newspaper trucks being a runner in the 50’s. Schubert’s was on the route. A few years later I sold the Boston Globe, Traveler & American on the corner across the street after school. Perkins ‘ Supply was there forever. So sad to see it all disappearing. Really miss the old Southie.

    The last thing we need is more over priced condos

      That is exactly why they are building them…to bring down the price of the already overpriced condos. Currently the demand for housing vastly exceeds the supply, the way to change that is create more supply. In this case it involves tearing down a historical business but I’m sure the owners of the building had no issues cashing the check.

    Sorry, the deaths of Dunks and Perkins are greatly exaggerated. Both are alive and well and continue to serve the community.

    I was in both stores today an neither looks like it’s going anywhere.

    Another case of a premature call by a ‘journalist’.

      Well, Bobby eventually they will be gone. Their days are numbered. Construction starts soon and hopes to be completed in 2017 so you better start saying your goodbyes. I’ve never claimed to be a “journalist” either.
