Rep. Camillo tours local Greenwich businesses

State Representative Fred Camillo (R-151) toured three local businesses along with the Connecticut and Business Industry Association on Monday, Oct. 5 in an effort to hear some of their struggles as well as their success stories. During his tour, he visited Splash Car Wash, P1 Motor Cars, and Corbo’s Deli. Each business owner provided a unique perspective on what their small business is faced with operating in Connecticut.

Splash Car Wash owner, Mark Curtis, said he is most concerned with the most recent law that charges a sales tax on car wash services. He also said he is concerned with the personal income tax demands in Connecticut. P1 Motor Cars owner, Phil Brous echoed Mark Curtis’ concerns about sales and income tax demands as well as pointing out the reality that “many high end car owners can easily move avoid the high Connecticut taxes by living in states like Florida for six months and a day.”

Sales and income tax woes aside, Corbo’s deli in Greenwich had a positive story and said that one of their main struggles is “keeping regular customers and keeping up with our demand. We enjoy being in Greenwich and Connecticut to serve their loyal customers,” said owner John Bosco. State Rep. Camillo remarked on his tour, saying “It’s interesting to get business owner’s perspectives. Constantly we are hearing of businesses failing due to legislation in Connecticut. However, these are three Greenwich businesses that although they have their struggles…they are holding their own.”
