Two more popular-but-apparently-not-enough Westport stores have closed.
Farrow & Ball has vacated its Compo Acres spot, near Trader Joe’s. The UK-based paint-and-paper crafts shop’s website now directs customers to Greenwich, or one of the Ring’s End locations.
Meanwhile, Sweet Frog has served its last frozen yogurt in the Fresh Market shopping center. The nearest Connecticut location is now Guilford.
Sweet Frog follows Peach Wave and Pinkberry out the Westport door. None of those national chains could cut it here.
So what’s the last frozen yogurt place left?
Top This – an independently owned (aka “mom and pop”) shop. It opened 8 years ago, when frozen yogurt stores were a new concept.
And Top This is downtown — just a few steps from Main Street, near the Post Road bridge.
One success story does not make a trend. On the other hand, they must be doing something right.
