QUINCY, MASS - Stop & Shop announced in a press release that they "continue to prioritize the safety and wellbeing of customers and associates" but have made updates to store hours and pickup programs.
All store locations remain open, however most stores will be adjusting hours to 7:30am - 8:00pm beginning March 16.
"In order to allow more time for our associates to unload deliveries, stock shelves, and better serve you throughout the day, we are adjusting our hours," said the release. "There may be some exceptions. Please visit your local store location".
A customer service representative at the Madison Stop & Shop did confirm to TAPinto Madison that the Madison location will be adjusting their times.
In addition to reduced hours, Stop & Shop has temporarily suspended their online pick up service until further notice. The home delivery service is continuing but the company is acknowledging delays on the website and with delivery times.
"We recognize that online shoppers may be experiencing delays on our website as well as with our delivery times", said the company. "This is again due to extremely high demand, and our teams are working incredibly hard to ensure the site is running smoothly so that you can continue to receive orders when you need them. Stop & Shop is continuing to maintain high levels of hygiene and sanitation in its stores and online operations. We’re also taking additional measures during this time, which include wiping down checkout areas including the belts and pin pads with disinfectant even more frequently. We will continue to follow guidance from the CDC to help keep our customers and associates safe".
"We are doing everything possible to get products to the stores and restock the shelves", the company said. "Our deepest thanks for continuing to support us, and we will continue to provide timely updates on our services and hours in the coming weeks".
