  1. It is nice that Stop & Shop has made Senior shopping hours. But at 6:00am to 7:30am. Who is going to shopping at 6:00am; not seniors.
    By the time they get up, eat breakfast, take there medication, and get washed and dressed, it is already 8:00am
    Plus is there going to be someone in the deli and meat departments to help seniors with their purchases. Also when will the shelves be stocked? Before 6:00am or later in the day.
    Has anyone taken these issues under consideration?

  2. I was there at 6:15 this morning, the store was fully stocked, except for the expected sanitizers that no one has. Deli and meat departments were staffed and the store was actually very busy. It appears a lot of seniors do get up that early.

  3. Just who are these people who assume that those over the age of 65 get up at 6 in the morning ever day and are in bed by 10 at night? I am well over that and am still up after midnight when I see the lights out at the homes of those much younger. Thanks, but I will shop when I am in need, will wait in line with the others and at a decent time.
