Reporter Linda Conner Lambeck, doing some Saturday morning errands, shot this photo showing damage to the Marshall’s store building in Stratford.
Linda says the damage was caused by a truck that clipped the building.
Marshall’s is located 411 Barnum Ave. in Stratford Square Center.
A woman who answered the phone at the store said Marshall’s is open for business as usual.
“We’re all fine here,” she said.
