The Ridgefield Chamber of Commerce features a new member in the Member Spotlight segment each month so they can describe their business in greater detail to other members and also to our website visitors. For the month of February 2022, we are pleased to shine the spotlight on Ridgefield Main Street. We asked our friends at Ridgefield Main Street some questions about the business and how they see themselves as unique in the Ridgefield community. Here is what they shared with us.
RCC: Please give a little background or history on your business, and describe the business/services.

Our activities, programs and events are designed to support our merchants, residents and visitors by showcasing our unique destination and sense of community.
