Fairfield supermarket closes despite community support
Stratfield IGA Supermarket is closing Wednesday, even with the overwhelming amount of community support.
The current owner says the landlord wants to turn the building into a Walgreens. The community, including First Selectman Ken Flatto says he is making a mistake. Many community members say they will not shop at the new Walgreens.
The store has been in Fairfield for 56 years and is staying open a few extra hours to accommodate the customers coming to say goodbye.
