Letter: As Spree in Darien closes, owner thanks community

To the Editor:

After seven wonderful years, I have decided to close my clothing store Spree.  I wanted to take a moment and thank the community for all the support they have shown me each and every year.  It was a privilege to be a small business owner in Darien, and I would not have made it without the help and support of my fellow store owners, such as Everything is Rosey, Wiggles and Giggles, and Helen Ainson, to name a few.  

I would like to say a special thanks for the amazing support and vision of Baywater Properties and David Genovese.  

As a business owner in town, it is so great to know that there are people like David who continue to want to make the town a better place for all who live here and whose goal is to have all the local small businesses thrive.  I will miss seeing the familiar faces in the store, but I hope to see everyone around town.  Lastly, I want to thank my family and friends who have shown me unconditional love and support.  Without them, Spree never would have been possible.

Owner of Spree
