L.L Bean is reportedly having second thoughts about becoming an anchor tenant at the former Northtown Plaza site in Amherst.  According to Business First, the store requested through its developer that the Town of Amherst rescind and refund its building permit.  Supervisor Brian Kulpa has refused that request.  Work on the Station 12 development has been halted by the pandemic, but Kulpa says he expects the work to continue this summer.
