The Natick Collection has announced that it will change its name back to the "Natick Mall" and return to tradition.
When the new addition was built at Natick Collection in 2007, introducing high-end stores such as Neiman Marcus and Nordstom, the "Natick Mall" name had a makeover of its own. Since then, the largest mall in New England has been known as "Natick Collection," to the dismay of many locals who were uncomfortable with the change. But this month, the 200-store retail landmark has begun its transition back to its nostalgic name. "For no other reason but to acknowledge tradition, we have returned to referring to the shopping center as Natick Mall. Tradition is important to us," said senior marketing manager Allyson Reed.

Facebook pages have sprung up as places where friends and strangers alike can remember the Wayland High School grad.
As friends and family and even total strangers struggle to process the events in Wayland during the past few days, Facebook has become an arena in which people can connect and cope.
