Business Resources

We welcome you to our community and thank you for taking an interest in our town.  Shirley has much to offer to new or expanding businesses:


Only minutes from Route 2 and 2A, and ready access to the Route 495 and I190 corridors, Shirley is well located for commuting to or moving goods and materials into and out of town.

Commuter Rail:

With a stop in Shirley Village, convenient rail service is a available along the Route 2 corridor from Fitchburg to Boston’s North Station.


With a new regional school that opened in the fall of 2014, and moderate housing prices, Shirley is ideal for young families who want to maintain a good life/work balance, or empty nesters tired of long commutes by living and working in the same town.

Economic Development:

Town government established an Economic Development Committee in 2010 to provide a dedicated focus to the needs and desires of businesses.  Developers and business owners have a built-in support system for facilitating their potential projects.
