All Ahold USA news



Stop & Shop is a leading supermarket brand in the northeast United States and the pioneer of the super store concept in New England. Today Stop & Shop is organized into two divisions: Stop & Shop New England and Stop & Shop New York Metro.

Stop & Shop traces its roots back to 1914 when the Rabinovitz family founded the Economy Grocery Stores Company in the Boston suburb of Somerville, Massachusetts. Four years later, family member Sidney Rabb introduced an idea that was then new to retail – the self-service, modern supermarket. As that idea caught on, the company rapidly expanded, furthering its development from a single corner grocer to two divisions with more than 400 stores today. The company officially became known as Stop & Shop, Inc. in 1946.

In 1982, Stop & Shop pioneered the superstore concept in New England. Today the two divisions operate superstores (some of which include gas stations), full-service pharmacies, and conventional supermarkets. The divisions have taken format development further in recent years, with stores that not only better serve customers but also use less energy.

Along with the other divisions in Ahold USA, the Stop & Shop divisions continue to grow sales and market share and focus on strengthening their own-brand offerings. They are using smartphone and internet technology to make shopping more convenient for customers. For example, ScanIt! Mobile lets customers use smartphones to scan their groceries, tally their orders, receive personalized savings and checkout – while they shop. The divisions are also introducing pick-points that enable customers to order groceries online and pick them up at the store without leaving their cars.

Stop & Shop is strongly committed to supporting local charities and fundraising initiatives.

At the end of 2013, the Stop & Shop New England division operated 215 stores and the Stop & Shop New York Metro division operated 182 stores.
