At 33,000 square feet, it’s pretty big.
And with its new renovation, it’s more modern than ever.
But at its heart, Mitchells of Westport is still a community center — a home away from home.
That’s never more true than on Saturday mornings. The coffee is on. The bagels are fresh. And there, in a comfy corner, you’re apt to find members of the extended Mitchell family. They greet old friends, meet new (soon-to-be-old) friends, and somehow manage to turn a high-end men’s and women’s specialty retailer into the 2018 version of a country store.
This year, Mitchells celebrates its 60th anniversary.
And this Saturday (September 22), in honor of its new look, the store is hosting a townwide party. They invite everyone to stop by, enjoy the new look, have coffee and bagels and more.
And if you remember their original location*, they’d love to hear your stories.
*It was a tiny shop, located at the corner of Post Road East and North Compo Road — where People’s United Bank is now.
