Michaels taking over bankrupt retailer’s space in Bridgeport
Arts-and-crafts chain Michaels is taking over the former Sports Authority storefront at Brookside Center in Bridgeport, at 4543 N. Main St. just south of the Merritt Parkway.
The Sports Authority closed stores in Bridgeport and Danbury as part of a 2016 bankruptcy dissolution, with Dicks Sporting Goods taking over a Norwalk location.
In southwestern Connecticut, Michael’s has existing stores in Milford, Stamford, Westport, Wilton and Brookfield.
