According to a report from Worcester News Tonight [WNT], the Department of Transitional Assistance [DTA] office will be leaving its current location on Sudbury St. in downtown Worcester and will be moving into the vacant grocery store.
The store has been empty since Big Y closed in 2011 after nearly 20 years in business.
