It is being reported that the Brookfield grocery store being built at 14 Candlewood Lake Road that was projected to be opening on September 15 has been delayed until December.

According to CT Post, Brookfield is calling the construction a highly anticipated "new concept" grocery store. However, it has not been "officially" announced that it is, in fact, Connecticut's first Amazon Fresh store. We covered the story, though, and Brookfield's First Selectman Steve Dunn told us on the show that it is what we thought, and that architectural drawings resemble existing Amazon Fresh stores.

Can we stop the hush-hush already? You know what they say, "If it quacks like a duck, it's a damn duck!" So what's with all the mystery? Is it because the new store will introduce Connecticut to a new technology called "Dash Cart?" Or is it the fact that not announcing the name of the grocery store attracts more attention their way from idiots like me?

Let's assume for this article this Brookfield "mystery store" is an Amazon Fresh grocery store. The new technology called "Dash Carts" is used to shop and eliminate job opportunities for cashiers. Way to go, Amazon!

Vacant Brookfield Properties Give Me the Creeps

Brookfield Connecticut is a beautiful New England town with picturesque landscapes and architecture. It does have one section of road that is about a mile long, that time has forgotten. When the highway got extended, the life started to drain from this portion of Federal Road and COVID-19 put the finishing touches on any business that was hanging on for dear life. There are supposed to be people in these places, that's why they were made. The absence of humanity in these spaces makes them tragic and chilling.
