NORWICH — Victory Markets is looking to buy the homes of two organizations on East Main Street in Norwich, near the company’s headquarters.
The Loyal Order of the Moose agreed to sell its building at 62 E. Main St. directly next to Victory’s headquarters, said Henry Linger, governor of the lodge.
The papers have not been signed to complete the deal, he said.
Moose members plan to build a new place somewhere outside the city, but have not decided on a specific site, Linger said.
The aging building on Main Street was becoming harder to maintain and the lodge had wanted to move outside the city, he said.
Members of the Veterans of Foreign Wars Norwich post will vote Sunday whether to sell their building at 65 East Main St., to Victory Markets, according to a Jan. 2 letter from Commander Joseph Fama to members.
