Saugatuck Sweets officially opened at Westport’s Saugatuck Center today with a balloon release instead of a ribboncutting. Co-owners Al DiGuido and Pete Romano welcomed guests to the sweet shop which occupies space initially leased by Saugatuck Craft Butchery, which moved across the street.

Tell People How Helium Balloons Harm Sea Turtles
Helium-filled balloons are frequently released into the sky to celebrate events. Like plastic trash, helium balloons end up in the ocean, especially when released near the coast. Sea turtles mistakenly eat the balloons and die. If you know of a group planning a balloon release, ask them to consider another attention getter.

Bravo to Al and Pete for their success and for being part of the vision established so many years ago to attract businesses to Saugatuck oriented to Westport residents and their families.  Thank you to the Gault family for leasing space in Saugatuck Center to Saugatuck Sweets, CM Gourmet, Craft Butchery, the Whelk, Down Under Kayaking, and others businesses that are attracting residents to Saugatuck, and reminding us why this section of Town is so special.  Thank you Saugatuck Sweets for adding some spice to Saugatuck with a cherry on top!

A more environmentally conscious opening would be better.


Never release helium balloons. It is against the law in Connecticut to release 10 or more balloons in a 24-hour period.
