The Hartford Courant: Sweat therapy, indoor golf, dog groomer and new restaurant on the way to The Shops at Farmington Valley in 2022

In a good sign for the Route 44 commercial corridor in Canton, several new businesses will be opening at The Shops at Farmington Valley this year.

The new merchants include a mix that’s well beyond the clothing stores usually associated with the shopping center, including an indoor golf center, a dog-grooming service, a sweat-therapy salon and an Italian restaurant from the owners of nearby Market Place in Avon.

“We still have plenty of places to shop for apparel, but we’re also mixing in more daily needs like health and wellness,” General Manager Elizabeth Ackerman said Tuesday.

“We know people want convenience and a one-stop shopping experience. We have a supermarket here, we have Harvey & Lewis so you can see an eye doctor or get glasses,” she said. “And obviously our restaurants are part of that, too.”
