After 24 Years in New Canaan, Littlejohn’s on Elm to Close

A longstanding children’s clothing store in the heart of downtown New Canaan will close at the end of next month, its retiring owner said. Littlejohn’s at 120 Elm St. opened in 1990 when Anda Weyher and her then-business partner, both former New Yorkers, decided to bring their own fashion sensibility for children to New Canaan. Since then, the boutique shop has emerged as a fixture, first at 21 South Ave. and then to its 1,350-square-foot space on Elm.
