About Us

Our commitment starts and ends with you, our customers. For a 100 years, we’ve operated our business with a single goal in mind: delivering unmatched selection, quality and value.

Our History

                               original Stop & Shop store front

Our story starts in 1914 when the Rabinowitz family opened a corner grocery store in Somerville, MA. Four years later, they introduced the modern self-service supermarket, and by 1947, our company had grown into a flourishing chain of 86 supermarkets.

Since then, we’ve continued to grow and innovate, pioneering the superstore concept and opening over 375 stores throughout New England, New York and New Jersey.

A Legacy of Diversity
