Still looking for that perfect gift?

It could be just around the corner and away from the chains and box stores.

Deja Vu, a Munson Road store that refurbishes and repurposes a variety of items, Karen Zaleski reports that business has been very brisk. “We actually sell alot online than in the store – but there’s alot here. Their variety store has a little bit of everything ranging from knick nacks to snowboards; guitars to signs. Wherever you look, there’s often something new or different- and perhaps that pefect gift. In the back room are complete dining room sets, in the front, vases turned into birdbaths, artwork, and walking canes.

Youth Jobs: Waterbury Needs Shovellers

by Christopher O'Brien

Waterbury Mayor Neil O’Leary is calling upon any youth at least 14 years old and older who wants to earn minimum wage on Tuesday. After 34 inches of snow fell on the Brass City, the City’s public works crews still haven’t had a chance to dig out the thirty-odd schools in town.

Any person interested should show up at City Hall at noon on Tuesday dressed warmly and with a shovel. City Hall is at 235 Grand St., downtown Waterbury. 203-574-6712

The notice was posted to the Waterbury Police Athletic League’s Facebook page and reposted on the Mayor’s Facebook page Monday evening.
