History – Continued


In 1997, Tony Jr.’s daughter Jennifer entered the business to open Nutmeg Discount Liquors. The Wine and Spirits 15,000 sqft super-store is located at the site of a former chain store competitor. The store consistently ranks in Food & Wine Magazine as one of the top 100 wine stores in the country. We have since rebranded the store name to Caraluzzi’s Wine & Spirits to accommodate plans for more locations.


In 2001, Tony Jr’s son Mark re-entered the business in a marketing and business development capacity. Then in 2002, the Bethel store underwent another major expansion and complete remodel of the store, creating spacious aisles and a greenhouse entrance. The expansion also included new departments such as full-service floral and seafood, a sushi bar and much more.


In March 2003, the family opened their 2nd supermarket in Wilton, CT in an area known as Georgetown. The Caraluzzi’s Georgetown Market took over the former A&P location on Route 7 and involved a total interior demolition.


In October 2008, the family opened their 3rd supermarket in Newtown, CT. The Caraluzzi’s Newtown Market took over a space formerly occupied by Grand Union. The new market includes new elements such as a full-service cheese department, prime meats, Wi-Fi Café and more.
