HomeGoods officials confirmed the East Haven store will close in early April, and then reopen at a spot in the Milford Crossing shopping mall later that month.
Although the Frontage Road location is closing permanently, all 68 employees who currently work there will be given the opportunity to retain their positions with the company at the Milford store.
Arthur DeSorbo — who serves as East Haven's economic development coordinator as well as its director of administration and management — told New Haven Register reporter Susan Misur he had heard HomeGoods could be closing its Frontage Road spot.
DeSorbo said he then contacted the firm that manages the building, C.A. White, "to offer assistance."
DeSorbo said HomeGoods parent company TJX Companies, had a "lease issue" with the property's owner.
“I’m confident the space won’t be vacant for very long. It’s a great location for retail," he said.
