BJ's Wholesale coming to Norwalk?

If you drive down Route 7 in Norwalk, you will notice there has been more activity at the site of 272 Main Ave. in the past few months.

The site has been a vacant lot for years, mostly due to environmental issues.  There was some recent rumors that Lowe’s was looking at the site, but in an article published today on, it sounds like BJ’s Wholesale might be the possible tenant.

A “big box” store at the 272 Main Ave. location is either a good thing or a bad thing depending on who you ask.  It would certainly make for a better visual than a vacant dirt lot, and would also bring some jobs and another established business to Norwalk.  Opponents to a large store like BJ’s cite increased traffic congestion as one of their main concerns.
