In 1949, after working 27 years for Gristede's Supermarkets in the Bronx, NY Anthony Caraluzzi Sr. invested every last nickel he had and bought the former Bethel Fruit & Vegetable Market on Greenwood Avenue in Bethel, CT. Caraluzzi's Markets is now well into its third generation of family management. At any given time of the day you can find several members of the family on-hand. And we pride ourselves on maintaining the highest level of service, quality, and low prices. Since 1949 many grocery store competitors have come and gone yet Caraluzzi's remains the steadfast staple for our areas.
Stop by any of our stores and you'll see why!
Over 50 years ago John and Sidney Maxwell founded a company called The Ski Hut, in Wilton Center, as a way to share their family's passion for skiing with the community. In 1983 their son, Jack Maxwell changed our name to Outdoor Sports Center, and moved us to 80 Danbury Road in Wilton. The name and location change was part Jack's dream to share his enthusiasm and philosophy; to help grow and nurture respect for the outdoors by using it as our playground. Today, we are still 100% family owned, many of our staff have been with us for 15 years or more, and we are proud to have customers that can recall our "Ski Hut" heritage.
