The commercial real estate listing sent shock waves through Westport.
“Exceptional 2,516 square foot downtown property now available for sale!” it read. “New to market, for sale at only $1,425,000.
“Significant potential for many other retail oriented uses. Long-term first floor commercial tenant and second floor, income-producing apartment. Call to inquire now before it’s too late!”
The address is 143 Post Road East.
But you know it better as Westport Pizzeria.
Founder and owner Mel Mioli had bought the Post Road location a couple of years earlier. It was a fortuitous hedge against a non-renewal notice from his Main Street landlord.
But don’t worry.
Mioli says he’s just testing the market. And even if he sells, he’s keeping the pizzeria.
