One day before Stop & Shop closes its Salem Street location the grocery chain will hold a “grand re-opening” at its other Medford location at the Fellsway Plaza.
The Fellsway store’s grand re-opening is on Friday, August 11 at 7:00 am. According to a press release, the remodeled store has expanded produce, fresh meat, seafood, floral, and deli departments. Stop & Shop is also increasing its selection of natural and organic foods and the store will have a sushi chef.
Stop & Shop will host free activities for customers every weekend through August 27 including product samplings, a BBQ, kids’ entertainment, and giveaways.
Stop & Shop is located at 760 Fellsway. Its Salem Street location is closing on Saturday, August 12. That store opened in January 2013 in a spot formerly occupied by Johnnie’s Foodmaster for many years.
Stop & Shop said it’s donating $1,000 to St. Raphael Food Pantry in celebration of the grand re-opening of its Fellsway store.
