Ridgefield CT is centrally located in Fairfield County with easy access to NYC by train or car and a short one hour drive from Hartford. Our Ridgefield CT businesses benefit from a strong consumer base that prefers to “shop local”.  Besides major retailers such as Stop & Shop, Kohl’s and Talbots that reside here, local Ridgefield CT merchants also draw from neighboring Fairfield County towns, as well as from adjoining Westchester County, New York.  Universal visitors come to stroll our historic Main Street, shop our stores and dine in our world class restaurants.

This historic New England town combines an enviable rural setting for family living and outdoor enjoyment; an ideal location for commuting by auto or rail to major business and commercial centers.  Ridgefield CT is home to more than 9000 households with 25,000 of the most affluent and best-educated residents.  Our acclaimed Ridgefield Playhouse draws visitors from afar, selling out its 500 seat venue on a regular basis.  

In fact, whatever the reason for visiting, – Arts & Culture, Dining or Shopping, approximately 50% of business revenues are generated from Ridgefield CT visitors, increasing the effective consumer base to more than 35,000.
