Main Street Merchant Tour 2016: Darien

The HAN Network visits the Post Road in Darien for the first stop on our Main Street Merchant Tour. HAN’s Kate Czaplinski talks with various Darien merchants and town leaders on the second day day of Darien’s annual three-day Sidewalk Sales & Family Fun Days. Find out more about the Sidewalk Sales here.

We talk with the merchants that make the Darien business community so unique — from a new beach caddy business blowing up online, a mobile doughnut business and several merchants that have a long legacy in the town. We also speak with Darien First Selectman Jayme Stevenson.
