In the last 13 years, Mike Comeau has built a personal empire, piece by piece, establishing five independent grocery outlets — Village Market of Waterbury, Johnson’s Sterling Market, Shelburne Market, Richmond Market & Beverage, and Jericho Market.

But he’s decided it’s time to quit while he’s ahead, selling off the lot for the benefit of his employees — and his own family.

“I’m not saying that my wife and I won’t be sad to be out of the business — we’ve loved running the stores — but we will embrace the change,” Comeau said. “I think the ultimate plan for the stores was always to sell them. I never planned to run them forever, and like most things in life, you can’t always choose the timing.”
