The fall season means back to school for most families. And while many of us may have a to-do list that just keeps getting longer and days that are getting shorter, we have you covered when it comes to getting ready for back to school and the fall season here in Ridgefield.


If you are still looking for back to school essentials, new clothing, or just household essentials, here are some great local options to consider!

  • If you need to get a couple extra school supplies for the kids or you’re low on any office supplies for yourself, stop in to Squash’s Ridgefield Office Supply. Squash’s also offers a full print and copy center for business cards, brochures, and any other printing needs.
  • New arrivals at Books on the Common are ready for you to get your hands on them! Stop by our charming town’s bookstore to let the kids pick out new books for the school year and grab a new novel for yourself.
  • Ridgefield Running is the perfect spot if you are looking for new activewear for yourself and the kids – that includes sneakers, backpacks, water bottles, and more.
  • A great spot for the young ladies is Miss Confident’s boutique for all in-style clothing, accessories, and jewelry. Meanwhile, for the men in the family, stop by Hutton’s Fine Menswear. For your littlest one, stop in Sammy + Nats for any baby clothing and accessories needs.
  • And last but certainly not least, all moms deserve to treat themselves! Check out the latest styles at Audrey Road and Olley Court, or see what treasure you can find at Consign Envy.

Self Care

When we are busy running errands, trying to stick to a new routine, and making sure all the chores at home are done, self-care can slip away from us. So don’t forget about some of the great options in Ridgefield that will make you look, and more importantly feel better!

  • Bring yourself and the kids for a haircut at Adam Broderick Salon & Spa or The Dapper Den Barbershop. And while you’re at Adam Broderick’s Salon & Spa, consider a mani-pedi or full spa experience and massage, it will be worth it!
  • You can also #GetWhipped at the Whip Salon, with full hair services, and lash and brow treatments.
  • If you’re looking for a way to relax, book an hour massage or an appointment for an organic facial at Susi Laura Massage. You can also purchase organic body care and skin care products as well as gifts and accessories at the boutique!
  • To unwind and nurture your body, take a yoga class either virtually or in person at Imagine Yoga in Ridgefield, currently offering a new student intro special!

With the new Learning Pod Program, working parents that are in need of a place to work can work in the co-working space while their children receive assistance with remote learning. There are also a handful of wonderful classes for the kids, including art and skill building. 
  • For the moms looking to connect with other moms, take a look at the latest tips and updates from Ridgefield Moms. And check out the Fearlessly Facing Fifty podcast with Ridgefield’s own Amy Schmidt to hear some great conversations we can all relate to!
  • Bring the kids to Zoe & Co. Sugarbeads to create their own charm necklaces or bracelets, a fun activity that is sure to leave you and the kids with a smile. You can also grab Bead Kits to go!
