What about another Bank? Don't we need more banks in Fairfield County? Ya think! Seriously, I'd like to see a charitable organization inhabit the space. Maybe even a men's homeless shelter. I wonder how that would fare in a town called New Canaan when most of the people have never even seen the inside of a soup kitchen on a volunteer basis. What about the Goodwill or a thrift shop? Just to balance out the shopping for the "haves" and the "have nots". Consignment shops are doing well now and that is another possibility too.

Great Idea! The "Just a Buck" stores do fabulously well in down markets. That would work too. Even rich people like to land a bargain. Correction: rich people love bargains!!!

I like the idea of a Mens Shelter. I might need one sooner than later the way things are going for me now.

Scores for women. We'll make the store facade look like a sports equipment store. Husbands will never know. You write a check for everything else why not write a big one to me (sorry - only cash or credit card). - Fred Garvin Male Prostitute

You're mostly right, Big Willy. When I lived in New Canaan I did the majority of my grocery shopping at Food Emporium, my pharmacy was Wal-greens. When I went into town I'd stop at Dunkin Donuts or Starbucks for a cup of coffee or Baskin and Robbins for an ice cream. I bought clothes at J Crew and Ann Taylor. Heck I even once got a spray tan at Benefit! But there were occasions that I shopped at the local book store, and McKenzies and ate at restaurants in town (Cherry Street and Chef Luis being my favorites), I even bought gas at the Mobil station! At least that buck I saved going to HomeGoods came back to New Canaan and was spent there, even if it was spent at a national chain retailer.
