It’s official: Walgreens is closing its longtime HomeGoods shopping center location (opposite Shake Shack). A source says that employees have been told they will be retained, but they have not been told where.
Walgreens has a 2nd Westport location, just a couple of miles away across from the Sherwood Diner.
The company — the largest drug retailing chain in the US, with over 8,000 stores — recently abandoned plans to build a new facility just over the Southport line. Neighbors had filed a legal challenge with Fairfield’s Plan and Zoning Commission.
Before it was Walgreens, the HomeGoods plaza site was occupied by MediMart.
Meanwhile, the most important question is: Why is Walgreens’ logo red?
