Norwalk Fabric Outlet moving downtown

Norwalk Mayor Rob Duncan, his state of the city address, announced this week a new tenant will move into the downtown space once occupied by One Little Blessing.

“I think you’ll be excited about it,” he told council members.

While the mayor didn’t disclose what that tenant is, Norwalk Fabric Outlet LLC announced on Facebook it is moving from 124 E. Main St.

“We’ve outgrown our store and will be moving to 32 West Main St. We are still in Norwalk. The store will be closed February 12-21. Looking forward to seeing you in our new location,” according to the Facebook post.

People who commented expressed their congratulations and how excited they are for Norwalk Fabric Outlet and its customers.

While emphasizing the positive things going on in Norwalk, Duncan said there were many new businesses that came to the city in 2017. Among those were: Dunkin’ Donuts, Buckeye Express Car Wash, O’Reilly Auto Parts and Duncan and Co.

Also, the mayor said there are separate superintendents for the wastewater and water departments. Bill Albrecht, who oversaw both, is now the wastewater superintendent. His longtime assistant, David Ackerman, oversees the water department.

“They can both dive into the expertise of both … instead of (relying on) general knowledge,” Norwalk Public Works Director Josh Snyder said.

The moves were prompted by the departure of chief operator Rick Schaffer. The city didn’t refill the position.

“Among all that shuffling it saved about $50,000 overall,” Snyder said.
