Bristol is faced with another empty store – the closing of the Walmart Neighborhood Market on Oakland St.
This store was very convenient and the prices were reasonable. For those residents that live on a budget; Price Chopper and Stop & Shop tend to be pricey.
So next in line for shopping is Shop Rite and Aldi’s.
Does anyone know who owns the space on Oakland St?
Are there any future plans for occupancy?
I hope that this space doesn’t end up like the open space across from City Hall that has been vacant for a long time.
Bristol basically has no decent merchants to bring in revenue to keep our taxes from going up every year.
Southington just added Chips, Home Goods and Michael’s.
What’s wrong with Bristol? Something to think about.
