Wilton Social Services Introduces Senior Discount & Services Program
Wilton Social Services announced the rollout of the Senior Discount & Services Program, which provides a comprehensive online guide to discounts and services offered to senior residents (age 65 and older) at over 20 participating Wilton-based businesses and organizations. Senior residents can simply show an ID to qualify for available discounts. While the brochure is primarily an online resource available on the Town of Wilton website, printed copies will also be available at the Wilton Senior Center at Comstock Community Center, the Wilton Town Clerk’s Office at Wilton Town Hall, Wilton Chamber of Commerce, Ogden House, and Wilton Commons.
“We are thrilled to be offering the Senior Discount Program in Wilton for both the seniors in town and the Wilton businesses. We hope any Wilton resident over 65 takes advantage of the opportunities available to them as highlighted in our brochure,” said Sarah Heath of Wilton Social Services.
A number of neighboring communities, including Ridgefield and Fairfield, offer similar programs which have been very well received by both businesses and senior residents. Several Fairfield businesses reported seeing a significant increase in foot traffic and increased sales. Organizers say this program will encourage seniors to shop locally and enjoy savings while spending is kept in the Wilton community. The Board of Selectmen, the Wilton Economic Development Commission, and the Wilton Chamber of Commerce have all shown their support for the program.
