What used to require a road trip for residents of one seacoast city will soon be in their back yard.

 

Fans of the Mexican chain Chipotle have rejoiced, as New Hampshire's newest location of the restaurant will be at the Garrison City Commons site that is under construction at the corner of Glenwood and Central avenues. Chipotle will be only one of new tenants. According to Fosters.com, a Newburyport Five Cent Savings Bank branch, Sports Clips Haircuts and Firehouse Subs will also join the establishment famous for their bowls and burritos.

Jim Mitchell,  vice president of Tropic Star Development, told Fosters  fans of Chipotle will likely have to wait until fall to indulge. Most of the aforementioned stores are also poised to open around the same time. Until then, the closest location lies in Newington.

Of all the pro tips associated with the chain, I find ordering a burrito nets you more bang for your buck. You can always empty the tortilla into a bowl later.
