What are you doing to keep your stores clean and safe?

Stop & Shop has amplified its cleaning and sanitizing efforts to ensure you can shop with confidence.

Upon entering all our stores, disinfecting wipes are available near the entrance, and customers are welcome to wipe down carts, hand baskets, and ScanIt! devices before use.

Our associates are frequently wiping down self-service locations and checkout areas with disinfectant. This includes the belts and pin pads at our registers.

We have suspended our food sampling programs, in-store events, as well as community solicitation until further notice.

Are you taking any precautions with your associates?

We are providing them with updated direction and guidance from the CDC and local health officials on healthy workplace habits, and we are working to ensure our associates have items like disinfecting wipes, gloves and hand sanitizers to use at work to help keep themselves and customers healthy. In addition, associates are conducting regular handwashing every 20-30 minutes. Stop & Shop is encouraging all associates who don’t feel well to stay at home.

Are you experiencing a shortage of products? Is there an item limit?

Stop & Shop is seeing increased sales on items like hand sanitizers, disinfecting wipes, Lysol sprays, bleach, antibacterial soap and other cleaning products. We’re working diligently along with our suppliers to keep these high-demand products in stock.

Stop & Shop has placed a purchase limit on high-demand items such as hand sanitizer and Lysol wipes in stores as well as online, though the items may vary by location. The current limit is 5 items per customer.

My community group’s solicitation was canceled, why?

Out of an abundance of caution, all community group solicitation has been canceled until further notice as we continue to prioritize the health and safety of our customers and associates.

There are no in-store events or sampling, why?

All in-store events and food sampling have been canceled until further notice as we continue to prioritize the health and safety of our customers and associates.

What precautions are being taken at the Pharmacy?

At all pharmacies, our associates are wiping down the pharmacy counters and pin pads even more frequently with disinfectant. Our pharmacy associates are also conducting handwashing at more frequent intervals as well as using hand sanitizer on a regular basis. Additionally, all pharmacy patrons are encouraged, as always, to remain behind the privacy line until the customer ahead of them has left the area.

What precautions are being taken for home delivery?

Our home delivery facilities and drivers are taking additional measures to promote cleanliness through regular handwashing and use of hand sanitizer, per CDC guidance.

Stop & Shop’s home delivery customers can now request an “unattended delivery.” This means that the driver will drop your order on your front step, ring the doorbell, then depart. This can be requested under special instructions at checkout or by e-mailing service@peapod.com.

What precautions are being taken for pickup?

Our pickup associates are following all of the same sanitizing precautions including surface sanitization and regular hand washing every 20-30 minutes.
