Pymander — “the oldest new-age store in Connecticut” — is closing January 22.
The shop — which sells books, CDs, stones “and other gifts for those interested in spirituality, recovery, alternative health, meditation, energy work, Reiki, Feng Shui, yoga and other body work” — started out 39 years ago in Westport, in the days when that kind of store easily found a home here.
Eventually it migrated to the Westport/Norwalk line, near John’s Best. A few years ago it moved to Norwalk’s Wall Street.
For now, everything is 40% off.
Soon, Pymander will just be the answer to a trivia question: “What was the name of that new age place near downtown…?”
