Mitchell Family Gathers For Reunion
With all 3 Mitchell sons spread across the country, it takes a big event to bring them together.
But the trio — Scott ’89, Chris ’91 and Tyler ’97 — were all in Westport today. They joined many other family members at Mitchells of Westport — their flagship store — to celebrate their father Bill’s 50 years with the business.
The Mitchells are one of Staples’ premier soccer families. All 3 sons played for the Wreckers. Chris went on to star at Dartmouth College, then played in Zimbabwe. Bill was a constant presence on the sidelines — and continues to see as many matches as he can.
Scott now runs the Richards store in Greenwich. Chris heads up the Marshs store on Long Island. Tyler is in charge of the 2 Wilkes Bashford properties, in San Francisco and Palo Alto.
But today they were all back where it started — and not far from Loeffler Field.
