Forty jobs in limbo as Mrs. Green's shuts its door

Wilton’s Mrs. Green’s natural foods grocery store will close its doors by Sunday, Jan. 18, a spokesman for the company said this week, though he maintained the company is “committed to the Connecticut market.”

John Collins, the company’s spokesman, said fewer than 40 employees currently work for Mrs. Green’s in Wilton, and the company would help move employees to stores in New Canaan, Stamford, and Fairfield.

“Our primary focus is on our associates and working to transition them to open positions where appropriate,” he said by email Friday. “It has been our pleasure to work with the Wilton team and the Wilton community and offer our heartfelt support to them during this closure.”

The Wilton store first opened in the Gateway Shopping Plaza in the early fall of 2013.

The company, which is based in New York, will continue to run markets in Stamford, New Canaan, and Fairfield, Conn.
