WESTBOROUGH – A former bank on East Main Street will soon become a hub for local artists and vendors.

By the middle of April, nearly 20 vendors will set up the Boroughs Collective in the Keating Building.

LeDuc Antiques will be among several downtown businesses moving to the new first-floor space, which is 3,000 square feet.

“We were getting close to the end of the lease [at its present location],” said Anna Leduc. “We wanted to stay downtown, with more parking.”

She said the Keating Building has “three times the size” – a bit too big for just one vendor, but a much better fit when other small vendors are added.

“We’re sharing space … rent is one of the biggest expenses,” she said.

Hygge House Books, Décor, Katy’s Creations and Antique Therapy will be some of the other crafters, artists and businesses setting up shop.

“The idea is to get under one roof unique product vendors,” said Leduc.

In addition to parking, the collective will be next to the BORO Sugar Shack, and it will have the farmers market nearby at Bay State Commons.

A soft opening is scheduled for mid-April.
