Downtown fixture leaving Danbury after three decades

A downtown establishment is getting ready to close its doors after nearly 3 decades in Danbury.  Tuxedo Junction is closing August 31st.  Danbury Economic Development Director Bruce Tuomala says he remembers the business well.  But he says Tuxedo Junction has gone in a different direction in recent years so it's no surprise they wound up where they are at this point.


City officials and Ives Street establishments have been at odds in the recent past over things like "18 to party, 21 to drink parties" and fights among people when closing time rolls around.


But the current operator, Al Caccamo, told the Danbury Patch that the problem is downtown saying parking is too inconvenient for patrons, the problem of people begging for money and too much competition.


Tuomala says Caccamo's comments are unfortunate given the progress that's being made downtown.  He says the operator has chosen not to participate in the revitalization, which will have a tremendous impact on the long term picture.


CityCenter says they are trying to attract a regional business operator to Ives Street, which was named the Dining and Entertainment District in the 90s.
