Mrs. Green’s grocery store in downtown New Canaan is closing “temporarily,” company officials say. Open since April 2014 and less than one year after pursuing a $100,000 renovation, the company “believes our stores are a place to call home, where families can find locally-grown, organic and natural products that will help them live happier, healthier lives,” CEO Pat Brown told NewCanaanite.com in an email. “While challenges are forcing us to temporarily close this store, we want to thank all of our customers and our entire team who treated us like family. Mrs. Green’s will work hard to reopen as soon as possible and continue to provide our customers with both healthy-living opportunities and the highest quality all natural and organic products.”
Located at Park and Cherry Streets, the store for several days has seen shelves go unstocked, and its meat and fish counters were empty on Thursday. Mrs. Green’s also had posted signs in the store saying it was experiencing “significant delivery challenges” that it hoped to resolve.
