FAIRFIELD, Conn. — A Fairfield institution will be closing its doors this holiday season: Swanson’s Fish Market will be no more after New Year’s Day.
The Swanson family had announced plans to sell the 45-year-old business earlier this month, but they decided to close when patriarch Jerry Swanson passed away just days after the announcement.
“So it’s finally official today, after 45 Year’s my father has decided to move on to another business venture and sell Swanson’s Fish Market,” Swanson’s granddaughter Larissa Swanson wrote on Facebook. “This will officially be our last Holiday. We have been a landmark here in Fairfield County, being voted best seafood for over 30 straight years, so it is a very bittersweet feeling for our family.”
Swanson’s is at 2439 Black Rock Turnpike. Larisa Swanson welcomed customers to stop by when supplies last.
“Thank you all to our loyal customers, we love you,” she wrote.
