Although Stop & shop will not be requesting ID for entry, they request that we all respect the purpose of the early opening – and do the right thing for our older neighbors. Stop & Shop will reserve the right to ask customers to leave if they are not a member of this age group.

Stop & Shop has adjusted its hours of operation to 7:30a.m.-8:00p.m.in order to allow more time for our associates to unload deliveries, stock shelves, and better serve our customers throughout the day.

The chain said it is continuing to maintain high levels of hygiene and sanitation in its stores and online operations. It is also taking additional measures during this time, which include wiping down checkout areas including the belts and pin pads with disinfectant even more frequently. It will continue to follow guidance from the CDC to help keep our customers and associates safe.
