FAIRFIELD, CT -- State Rep. Kim Fawcett (D-Fairfield) has teamed with the Fairfield Chamber of Commerce to recognize women-owned local businesses. Fawcett is highlighting businesses for their contributions with a monthly recognition award.
The Fairfield Women’s Economic Spotlight event will be hosted monthly by Fawcett and the Chamber as part of an ongoing effort to recognize local small businesses for their contributions to the community and economy.
“I want to thank these businesses, while also celebrating women who are often balancing so much more than just running a business,” Fawcett said in a statement.
The Fairfield Women’s Economic Spotlight this month recognizes Salon 1560 and manager Victoria Vitale Niedermeier. Salon 1560 is located on the Post Road in downtown Fairfield. It is a family-owned business that has been in downtown Fairfield for three generations and more than 40 years.
“The Fairfield Chamber is thrilled to team up with Rep. Fawcett and bring much needed attention to our thriving small business community,” said Beverly Balaz, newly appointed executive director of the Fairfield Chamber.
