Chain Store
Photograph by Catherine Karnow

A shopper totes her canine companion along with a new 'collar' for a girlfriend in London—a necklace from Tiffany & Co. A swarm of national chains has set up shop here along Greenwich Avenue and crowded out many of the local mom-and-pop stores. But some have picked up the small-town spirit. Tiffany's frequently sends business across the street to Betteridge Jewelers, a longtime fixture in Greenwich.
