You may have wondered recently about ERG’s current 40% off sale, or heard rumors that ERG is moving. Well, it’s true-we are moving and, as the saying goes, “when one door closes, another opens”.
The ERG story began with two partners – me, Lori, who you all know, and another, Ida, who has been a silent partner. Two women who brought a dream to life – the creation of a unique place to shop for fine gifts that was absent from the Waterbury retail landscape since the closing of the much-loved China Shop. After eight years, Ida is retiring, and I have decided to forge ahead and continue what I love to do. We came to a decision to close this chapter and this store so that each of us could move in the direction of our choice. I embrace the lessons learned during our partnership, and I’m very excited to move on to a new chapter.
So the real news is that I have found a wonderful new store location in Woodbury. Initially, I hoped to stay in Waterbury and tried diligently to source a property. I’m a Waterbury gal and proud to be a businesswoman here, however, after an exhaustive search, I couldn’t find a location in the city that met all the criteria for space, location and affordability. My search led me to Woodbury, where the fit was perfect. I was immediately enamored with the space, and I know you’ll feel the same way!
We are clearing out the remaining inventory on Chase Parkway and, concurrently, curating a fabulous new store filled with inventory to include many of the brands you love, mixed among fresh new lines, to create the new ERG experience we know you’ll love even more!
We’ll be closing the current store on April 4th – and YES you will be able to get all your Fascia’s Chocolates* here until then to fill all your Easter baskets!
I can’t wait for you to shop in our new store very soon-our target opening date is early May. The new store is located at the bottom of Ben Sherman Hill in the same plaza as Carlito’s Restaurant.
Hope to see you soon at our Waterbury location (there are still many, many great finds left at a great discount!)… and look for our Woodbury grand opening announcement very soon. The next chapter is about to be written!

But all is not lost, I consulted an expert, my wife Lori Greene. (Here is a batch of her correspondence going out today!)
