It really said to see the one of the last or maybe even the last of a local company leave stamford. Sad to see it close its doors and move out of the USA. part is staying in the USA and the rest to MEXICO.

Good. I'm glad to see this factory shut down. When I used to live in the Cove we had too much air pollution and I wondered if it had to do with the Clairol plant. Maybe it wasn't them but our proximity to I-95 and South End, but I'm pretty sure the air in the Cove will become cleaner after they're gone. And I hope they get rid of those guards too. They always annoyed me if I wanted to drive too far south Blachley Road. The whole compound was guarded like Supermax.

Oh, Creampie,
It wasn't the air Clairol polluted - it was the water. Didn't you ever see the manhole covers lifted off the street by mounds of suds on Van Buskirk Avenue, as they drained down to the pond in Cummings Park?(Presumably they were dumping mistaken shampoo batches.)

No wonder my hair always smelled so fresh after a swim at Cummings.

I hate when people move close to things and then complain about their existence.

Another corporation leaving Stamford. Clairol has been around a long time and I know quite a few people that have worked there for decades. Hopefully, these employees will be able to find something out there, although with the current high unemployment rate, it's going to be difficult.:(

They say urine is good for the hair too. It's more likely that is what you were experiencing at Cummings.
