A new retail plaza in Bridgeport will be anchored by a Gala Foods, the Fairfield County Business Journal reported. The Stratford Avenue development known as Civic Block will be 35,000 square feet and will also house a medical office, a pharmacy, a laundromat and a hair salon, according to the outlet. Construction is slated to start in the spring, and the plaza is expected to open by early 2020. The Civic Block Gala Foods will be the third Gala Foods in Bridgeport, but the first grocery store in Bridgeport’s East End neighborhood in decades, Mayor Joe Ganim said. “It has been over 40 years since the East End has had a grocery store in their neighborhood,” he said. “This project will be outstanding, and it will mark the rebirth of this part of our city.” [FBJ]
