Patricia Walsh of the Greater Mystic Chamber of Commerce with Joyce Olson Resnikoff , owner of Olde Mistick Village.

Olde Mistick Village is business of the month

MYSTIC — Olde Mistick Village is an integral part of the tourism industry in Southeastern Connecticut. That’s why it has been named the October recipient of the Business of the Month award by the Greater Mystic Chamber of Commerce.

In doing so the chamber wished to acknowledge and congratulate owners Joyce Olson Resnikoff and Jerry Olson on Olde Mistick Village’s 40th anniversary.

Located at 27 Coogan Boulevard in Mystic, the village has more than 60 stores in a unique, Colonial-inspired setting, creating a distinct shopping experience for its patrons. Enjoyed by both residents and visitors alike, the village started 40 years ago with Joyce and Jerry leading the way.

Resnikoff explained that the village started small and began to grow each year. When it first opened, there were 45 stores. Olson started the construction of the village, while Resnikoff coordinated all the leasing, marketing and financing. Since then, the number of storefronts has grown significantly and special events such as the Garlic Festival, car shows, and holiday activities have now become community staples. Open year-round, the village even offers extended hours during the holiday seasons for shoppers.

Throughout their 40 years of success, the Olson family prides themselves on the businesses that they have worked with and fostered. Many local businesses find great success in the village. Some businesses, like Steak Loft and R.A. Georgetti & Co, have been with the village since the very beginning.
