Opening of Brookfield’s ‘New Concept’ Mystery Grocery Store Delayed
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!
