Evergreen Walk is now starting to add stores to their shopping outlet. This would be extremely beneficial. There have been a loss of customers at Evergreen Walk since Covid-19. Adding more stores would make the shopping center more lively and would make the variety of stores much greater. Therefore, bringing in more customers and making the outlet a fun, family-friendly hangout/shopping spot.

It’s so important for a community to have a safe, lively space for people to have fun. Adding more stores would draw more families in and create a very personable, entertaining atmosphere. The food chain Shake Shack also recently opened at Evergreen and has since brought in many new customers and increased Evergreen’s livelihood. Having another restaurant in the outdoor outlets increases the variety of food so that there are several options for customers depending on their moods.

In addition to Costco, there is a Wholefoods being built. This will give a good alternative to how crowded Costco can become during rush hours. Having another grocery store besides Costco would make things so much more efficient for shoppers.

There is also word of a Nike store opening, which is extremely beneficial because the nearest Nike store is 38 miles away in Clinton, CT. With Evergreen being in South Windsor, it makes it so whatever stores are in that outlet are automatically more accessible than others.

Overall, adding new stores to Evergreen Walk is extremely beneficial in terms of atmosphere, livelihood, variety of stores, and alternative shopping options.
