When the present Noroton Heights Shopping Center is demolished in order to make way for a rebuilt one, Glen Liquors won’t be moving into a temporary structure in one of the parking lots. “We were turned down by Glen Liquors on the temporary building,” Greg Palmer, part of the family that owns the shopping center, told the Planning and Zoning Commission on Wednesday. At that meeting, Palmer asked for permission for Embody Fitness Gourmet to relocate to a temporary structure in the same parking lot (between Palmer’s Market and the shopping center). The commission gave its approval, but Embody may not. Embody “has asked us to pursue it [permission to relocate to a temporary building in the parking lot],” Palmer said.

When the Noroton Heights Shopping Center buildings are torn down (now expected to happen in October), Glen Liquors may be in a temporary structure in a corner of the parking lot next to Palmer’s Market, the Planning & Zoning Commission was told last week. The project to replace the shopping center at near the corner of Hollow Tree Ridge Road and Heights Road with a combination of stores and apartments is expected to begin with tearing down the present buildings in October. Then it will take about two years for the new buildings to open, the commission was told. The commission approved a plan that could put Glen Liquors in a temporary structure in the northwest corner of the parking lot beside Palmer’s (in the back, away from Palmer’s and well behind the Wells Fargo Bank on Heights Road). That doesn’t mean Glen Liquors is going to make the move — talks are ongoing, and the State Liquor Commission must approve it, the P&Z was told.
