FAIRFIELD - In response to General Electric announcing that it will be moving from Fairfield to Boston, some local business owners say they are worried about how the company's move will affect the town's economy.
Rawley's Drive-In is one of Fairfield's oldest establishments, having opened in 1947 - well before GE set up shop in the '70s. Owner Nick Frattaroli says the eatery has definitely seen a boost in business since GE came to Fairfield.
He says he knows GE has been the town's largest taxpayer and he's worried about how Fairfield will make up the lost revenue.
