You were there for us, now we're here for you.

Because of your incredible support, and the support of millions of New Englanders, our strike is over. You made the difference. You proved the power that comes from hard-working men and women standing together. Right now, in your local Stop & Shop store, our bakers, butchers, cashiers, and stockers are ready to provide you the best in customer service. And more importantly, we look forward to saying thank you. Thank you for shopping with us and standing with us. We will never forget it.
