WHY & WHO Invested In Seymour?







The Town of Seymour has long since recognized the importance of encouraging the professional, commercial retail business and industrial sectors to invest in the municipality's own future. Numerous merchants reside in our shopping centers at Klarides Village, Seybridge Plaza, Mountain Road CVS-Starbuck's Plaza, Walgreen's Plaza and Tri-Town Plaza and of course numerous others in downtown Seymour in our famed Antique's District. We welcome you to contact us to find out more about how we can assist your business in relocating to or opening up a new location in Seymour.  


Seymour provides convenient access to the Connecticut highway arterial system Routes 8, 34, 67, 115, 313 and 334 that run through Seymour as well as provide close proximity to the Merritt Parkway Route 15, Interstate Routes 84, 91 and 95.

Route 8 North/South is the main arterial Connecticut highway through Seymour that currently has approximately 69,000-75,000 cars/day passing through Seymour. Route 67 East/West has approximately 30,000 cars/day and Route 34 is heavily traveled providing connections of Interstate 84 to Route 8 to Interstate 95 and the Merritt Parkway.

Analysis shows downtown Seymour’s trade area includes ~60,000 residents with a total spending power of $1.1 billion. This area is roughly a five-mile radius in size and between a 10-15 minute drive for consumers. There is still an unmet retail, commercial and professional medical arts service demand along our Route 8 and Route 67 corridors and in the downtown orbit that can accomodate niche, retail and service categories such as: full service restaurants, clothing, sporting goods, crafts, electronics, books, hardware, professional medical arts and financial services that build off of existing strengths in the area. In total, Seymour could add realistically an estimated 250,000-750,000 square feet of additional services in all categories.

An immediate 3-town vicinity is comprised of 35,000+ residents with median incomes from $65,000-$100,000+. There are in excess of 300,000 residents and 50,000 homesteads with incomes of $125,000+ that reside within a 10+ mile radius of Seymour providing for a diversified choice in the labor pool and for retail commercial businesses (i.e. restaurants) to consider opening up new store locations and investing in Seymour that will draw others to come to Seymour as several towns surrounding us have very few retail service options.

There is local downtown Metro-North Rail service offering connections to mainline services running from Waterbury to Bridgeport, Stamford, Norwalk as well as connections to primary cities such as: New York, New Haven, Boston.

Airport service is provided locally for various smaller types of aircraft at Oxford, Tweed New Haven and Stratford-Sikorsky Airports.  Major international airport hubs are within driving distance that include New York's Kennedy and LaGuardia, New Jersey's Newark, Connecticut's Hartford/Bradley International Airports, Rhode Island TF Green and Massachusett's Boston Logan.

There are more than 13 institutions of higher educational learning within commute of Seymour.  Our residents have earned degrees from various colleges and universities providing for a well-educated 21st century workforce.

Seymour is home to the Silvermine Industrial Park, a 125 acre industrial park that was created for manufacturing businesses of all sizes and is the current home to several high tech companies and headquaters to one. Located nearby to the Silvermine Industrial Park  is the Hubbell Industrial Park home to Kerite, part of the Marmon Group which is owned by Berkshire Hathaway, that contains an additional 75 acres of industrial and commercial property.

Seymour contains several shopping plazas that include small business, restaurants and various chain or private stores.

We have a Downtown Historic Antique District that contains specialty shoppes in which visitors come from all around and are located within 25-30 minutes to the regional cities of New Haven, Waterbury and Bridgeport and offer a variety of diverse cultural and recreation choices.
