WALLINGFORD — A Madison-based garden center has moved into the outdoor area of the former Vinny’s Home & Garden Center on South Colony Road.
Village Greene Gardens opened at 1076 S. Colony Road (Route 5) earlier this month, said assistant manager Jeff Landon. Vinny’s closed after the roof collapsed during the February blizzard. Shattered glass remains scattered on the floor of the building.
“It’s kind of sad what happened to Vinny’s, but we got a good offer here and are trying to broaden our horizons,” Landon said.
