I can remember not long ago, going for an ice cream on a Saturday evening at Marcus Dairy and then taking a tour of the classic cars that would park on the grounds. That must have been where my son, Noah, got his inspiration for cars and the classics. Then on many Sunday mornings, you could hear the rumble of the motorcycles as they gathered at the famous dairy. Those days will be missed, but times have changed.
Opening soon at The Shops at Marcus Dairy will be Whole Foods, Eastern Mountain Sports and Petco. Sleep Number and Panera Bread are already open. Whole Foods should be open late spring or early sumer. With these changes brings more variety to the Greater Danbury Area. There have been about 50 new businesses that have opened in Danbury since December 2012. This is just another positive sign that economic times are changing for the better in Danbury.
I look forward to these new businesses and shopping in new stores as well as the opportunity that it will provide me to serve new employees that are relocating to Danbury or just want to move up and into a new home.
