A roughly 9,700-square-foot Fairfield property that has been vacant for more than a decade will soon house a preschool. Summit Development recently bought the former Stratfield IGA Market property at 1280 Stratfield Road and plans to lease it to the Goddard School, which has 10 other locations in Connecticut, the Fairfield County Business Journal reported. The King of Prussia, Pennsylvania-based preschool franchise, founded in 1988, has signed a 15-year lease for the site, which has been vacant since 2006 when the supermarket closed. Efforts to put a Walgreens on the property fell apart over zoning issues. “We will build out the exterior and interior, do landscaping and build a playground,” Summit Development founder, CEO, president and principal Felix Charney told the outlet. [FBJ]
