Celebrating our Anniversary

   The weather turns crisp, the fall foliage adds color and beauty to our town and we ready ourselves for the upcoming holidays.  At Harry’s, October is also a time for us to reflect on our history as we celebrate our store’s anniversary.
October is a beautiful time of year here in Fairfield.

It has been 74 years since Harry and Betty Pollack opened their small liquor store in October 1941.  Passed to a second generation owner in the 1970’s (Saul) and now a third generation owner in 2011 (Scott and his partners William and Patrick), Harry’s has seen tremendous change through its history.  From a single storefront located alongside the Post Road, heated by a potbelly stove, the store has been relocated to our current building and expanded within that building several times.  Within the store, product offerings are constantly changing and expanding, technology has been upgraded in keeping with the times and employees have come and gone.  But through all of this change, the one thing that has stayed constant is our singular focus on providing the best value and service possible to each of our customers.

 We hope that each time you visit our store, you see that we are very proud of our store and our history and sense the importance we place on the guiding principals that we have inherited.
 As we work to put our generation’s mark on Harry’s history we continue to strive to be a leader in our industry, a wanted member of our local community and a great place to work. We value you, our customer and work hard to show our appreciation to you for your patronage. We look forward to helping you celebrate your own milestones…the birth of your next child, the graduations, weddings and retirements.

We thank you for your friendships and the help you have given us through the years in growing our little store. We look forward to each new vintage, the next great beer and trend in spirits and are thankful for an interested community that shares of passion for finding the best of what our industry offers.

Thank you for the handshakes, the stories shared and for helping us to introduce our puppies to people. We offer our appreciation for your patience with our newer staff members and the well wishes to those that graduate our store and continue their own careers.

We will have some nice tastings and events through the remainder of the month so watch our Facebook and the local newspaper for notification of the fun in store and the savings on some of the best we have to offer.


P.S. October is also the anniversary of my marriage to Janice who helps me to write the history of our lives both in and outside of our lives here at the store. I offer my humble thanks and my whole heart to you.
