New Stop & Shop in Ossining

Nancy C Nov 15, 2008 05:11 AM

They opened yesterday - we did a bit of light shopping last night, and the place was hopping - folks running into neighbors, kids saying hi to their pediatrician, etc.. What a nice, clean supermarket, a huge contrast (and it IS HUGE) to the old, sad S&S. While we didn't need a whole lot of fresh food (produce, meat, etc.) it looks like it's going to be a nice addition to the neighborhood and will give Four Seasons and Food Emporium a run for their money. Bought a challah and had it for breakfast - yum, and a box of clementines for $5. Looking forward to trying it out again.

    We had a brand new Super Stop and Shop open a few months ago directly across from Waldbaums; I feel sorry for them because they're empty every time I go in. Only one cashier out of 20 open. I find their prices to be ridiculously high, and their sale prices are the regular prices everywhere else. What a waste!

      Thanks for the report, Nancy! We usually go to Food Emporium in Briarcliff, which is remodeling a bit (thank god-- now more than one person can fit in the fruit/veggie aisle), but we are curious about the new S&S. We'll probably go check it out this week.

        We often shop at the Food Emporium, too, and I couldn't agree more re: happy about their makeover, too. We also head to the Shop Rite in Croton where I love the double coupons - it's MUCH better than it was in the past - good produce, good butcher, good organic section, etc. and they FINALLY have enough staff for checkout!

        But we forgot a few things last night, and it's tempting to go try the S&S again. But that's further away, so I'll be kind to the environment and my pocketbook today and go to Shoprite.

          the food emporium in briarcliff is mediocre, even after the "remodel", weak produce, weak fish, poor assortments in general..

          Nice to hear, Nancy C. My S&S in Portchester hasn't remodelled yet, but they have the best butcher, imo of course, in Westchester.

          I like S&S, they have A&P beat by a long shot.
