Amazon Fresh likely headed to Orange, retail analyst says

ORANGE — A leading retail consultant says New Haven County could be getting its first Amazon Fresh grocery store, based on indicators he has seen before as the e-commerce giant has rolled out its stores across the country.

“I’m very familiar with for their site location and this checks off all the boxes,” Flickinger said Friday.


The plaza, owned by furniture and bedding retailer Raymour & Flanigan, has vacant space because of the departure of TJMaxx and Famous Footwear.

Scott Milnamow, senior vice president of real estate for Raymour & Flanigan, recently told the members of the Town Plan and Zoning Commission that the retailer’s real estate team has “secured a deal, a lease” for a national grocery store. Milnamow said he couldn’t reveal the name of the chain because of a confidentiality agreement with the retailer.

Flickinger said that “whenever they can, Amazon Fresh likes to locate its stores as close as possible to a Trader Joe’s, or a Costco or a BJ’s.”

Trader Joe’s has a store in the Orange Meadows Shopping Center across Peck Lane from the shopping plaza that Raymour & Flanigan owns. And there is a Costco less than a mile south on Boston Post Road.

Slightly farther south on Boston Post Road, just across the border in Milford, is Whole Foods, another retailer in Amazon’s burgeoning grocery empire. And farther north on Boston Post Road, near the West Haven line, is an Amazon warehouse.
