NEW CANAAN, Conn. – A pair of popular women’s clothing stores are among the choices some New Canaan residents would like to see moving into the downtown shopping area.

Several New Canaan Daily Voice readers offered their thoughts on our Facebook page on what they’d like to see come to the shopping district to fill some of the vacancies on Main and Elm streets.

Lori Falcone hopes to see Athleta, a Gap-associated retailer offering women’s casual and sport clothes along with swimwear.

Megan Roland Torgerson hopes New Canaan will be considered by Anthropologie, another popular women’s clothing shop featuring dresses, jeans, shoes and home accessories.

Anna Simonis Grubelic had several ideas. “The Gap or Athleta!! Or Banana Republic…or Tory Burch…”

Recently, New Canaan Chamber of Commerce Executive Director Tucker Murphy said she thought Apple should look into opening an Apple store at 96 Main St., at the corner of Main Street and East Avenue. The storefront has been empty for more than five years after the Wire Whisk moved out.
