New Stop & Shop Opens in Medford [VIDEO]
Ribbon cutting ceremony held Friday morning.
Officials from both the City of Medford and Stop & Shop gathered Friday morning to celebrate the opening of the new Stop & Shop supermarket at 471 Salem St., which housed Johnnie's Foodmaster until its closure in November.
Store Manager Rich Nolan said the store has many of the same amenities, including a full perishable department, that a Stop & Shop superstore would have.
"This was an established footprint and we put the new format in here," Nolan said. "They did it in a relatively, remarkably fast time."
City Councilors Fred Dello Russo and Rick Caraviello as well as State Rep. Paul Donato were attendance at the grand opening ceremony.
Regular store hours will be 7 a.m. to 10 p.m. Monday to Saturday and 7 a.m. to 9 p.m. Sunday.
