Stop & Shop Closing One Medford Store

Stop & Shop’s Salem Street location is closing this summer, according to multiple sources.

The grocery chain opened up a store there in January 2013. The spot was formerly occupied by Johnnie’s Foodmaster for many years. Stop & Shop has another Medford location at the Fellsway Plaza.

There is no official word yet on the exact closing date or what might move into that location.

New grocery competition is coming into the area. Wegmans is opening in Medford in the fall and Trader Joe’s is opening soon at Assembly Row in Somerville.
