Stop & Shop has implemented extensive safety measures throughout its stores, including: strict customer capacity limits; clear plastic barriers at all registers; added space between check outs; masks and gloves for all associates; robust cleaning and sanitizing procedures; and disinfecting wipes near store entrances so customers can wipe down carriages, hand baskets and ScanIt! devices. Stop & Shop was the first major grocery chain to offer dedicated, early shopping hours for customers age 60 and above and those who are immunocompromised. Stop & Shop is also providing thousands of meals each day for hospital workers in some of the areas hardest hit by the pandemic.
