Remember A&W in Dracut where the florist is now? That used to be a carhop type place! I loved it as a kid!

If some local business owner were smart, they would get one of these up and running without the Sonic name.

OK I love Sonic, but c'mon. Main St. from Wilmington thru Tewksbury is already busy as it is during rush hour. IMAGINE what it will look like once Sonic hits it!

A new Sonic will bring jobs into town.
Stop complaining about the traffic. Take Glen Rd. to Brown St. to Whipple Rd. to avoid traffic.

FWIW....a friend who lives in a NJ neighborhood where a Sonic opened over the summer and whose son works there said after the initial hype is over, the novelty quickly wore off to the point of cutting worker's hours for lack of enough business.

Opening another Sonic in this area is great, but not sure about this location. Main St. in Wilmington is already quite busy as it is. If the new Sonic generates even a fraction of the traffic that the Peabody one did when it first opened (and Peabody still generates A LOT of traffic during peak hours, especially in the drive-thru), then traffic on Main St. will be a nightmare.

Not to post a month since the last entry, but....

I agree, traffic will increase, but eventually it will die down. However, it will bring more business to the shops around. More business means more jobs and more income for the town. I live in Tewksbury and we need the money as is. I think there are pro and cons to the new construction, but overall I think it is good for the town.

As for the person who said is a new fast food joint really news. Well when brings in jobs, income for the town, and causes more traffic, I think is it is news worthy.

I'm getting transferred to the Wilmington Sonic once it opens. I'm in the Peabody one now and it's seriously the best job I've ever had.
