QUINCY, Mass., Sept. 13, 2019 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Stop & Shop, a neighborhood grocer for more than 100 years, has introduced a fresh new look at 21 Suffolk County stores on Long Island. The new look comes with a $133 million capital investment to improve the in-store experience for local customers, with a focus on delivering more fresh, healthy, and convenient options, plus lower prices on items throughout the store. Stop & Shop employs over 8,000 associates on Long Island and has added approximately 350 part-time associates, while also promoting nearly 100 associates to full-time positions as part of this initiative and its efforts to enhance the customer experience.
“The remodeling of our Long Island stores is a key milestone in our journey to refresh the Stop & Shop brand for the future and to strengthen our position as market leader,” said Stop & Shop President Gordon Reid. “We’re excited for local customers to enjoy the changes we’ve brought to Long Island like even more fresh produce, lower prices and new solutions to help make things easy for our customers get their shopping done and get back to what matters most.”
Part of the Reimagining Stop & Shop strategy, a multi-year initiative to refresh the brand’s 400+ stores across the Northeast, Long Island is the second market to unveil Stop & Shop’s new look, following 21 stores that were remodeled in 2018 in the Hartford, Conn., market.
While updates vary by store location, highlights of the 21 newly refreshed Stop & Shop stores include the following:
A ribbon cutting ceremony will take place at the Stop & Shop store located at 291 Main Street in Smithtown, New York, at 11 a.m. on Friday, September 13, 2019. The ceremony will kick-off grand re-opening activities including free food samples at all 21 stores, the Stop & Shop Airstream trailer, and special appearances by New York Giants alumni players at select stores.
Dedicated to giving back to the Long Island community, Stop & Shop will also commemorate the occasion by donating $12,500 in Nature’s Promise® natural and organic products to each of its food bank partners - Island Harvest and Long Island Cares - which together provide millions of pounds of nutritious food each year to those in need.
