S. Windsor debates second grocery store at Evergreen Walk

Karen Johnson, vice president of development for Charter Realty, the new management company for the Promenade Shops at Evergreen Walk, asked the PZC Tuesday to remove restrictions and allow a second 40,000-square-foot grocery store in the area. Zoning regulations don’t allow two grocery stores within 1,500 feet of each other in the Gateway Zone. The international discount supermarket chain Aldi is slated to open its new store across the street next month. Town Manager Michael Maniscalco, who says the vacancy rate at Evergreen Walk is 40%, and Mayor Andrew Paterna have expressed support for the zone change. The PZC will continue its public hearing at its March 9 meeting.
