Lord’s Department Store in Medfield to close in Feb.

Lord’s Department Store, the longtime retail anchor of Main Street in Medfield, is shutting down in February after 73 years in business. Tom Kelly, who runs the 10,000-square-foot store with his sister, Nancy Kelly-Lavin, said the format — featuring an old-fashioned soda counter, and small departments with toys, sporting goods, clothing, hardware, and candy — was still profitable, but they were ready to move on.

The family sold the property to Dedham developers Salvatore Capital Partners. It’s unclear how the company plans to use the space.
