Windsor Shopping Center

When Marguerite Mills decided to build a big shopping center in 1956, she applied for a seventeen-acre zoning change, which the Town Planning and Zoning Committee turned down. Ms. Mills appealed the denial and the case bounced around the courts until final approval. The shopping center finally opened in 1964. Early tenants were Bloom's Package Store, W. T. Grants, and the A & P Grocery Store, followed by Sage-Allen, Fleet Bank, A.C. Peterson, K-Mart, Dutch Oven Bakery, Weiner's Clothes and many more. Currently Bloom's Package Store, Ocean State Job Lot, CVS and many others make this a very active shopping center. © Windsor Historical Society.
