  1. The wife and I went
    The wife and I went Sunday.
    The place was very nice large and modern.
    I expect this store will either make Stop and Shop a better competitor or Stop and Shop will loose many customers.
    Competition makes everyone work harder, smarter and willing to serve their customers better.
    This is a good thing as Stop and Shop has had way too much market share and they have gotten used to doing it their way. It won’t hurt to have this kind of competition. We will Shop at Shoprite and Stop and Shop but we will buy what we like and what is priced right.

    1. absurdity!
      Political Forechecker wrote “Competition makes everyone work harder, smarter and willing to serve their customers better.”

      This is clearly false. Look at the New Rochelle School District. They do not allow charter schools and no one works harder, smarter and better serves the students and parents of New Rochelle than the Board of Education.

      1. That’s just the point, since
        That’s just the point, since there’s no charter schools, we have NO competition and therefore nobody’s “working harder, smarter or willing to serve their customers better” in the New Rochelle school district.

      2. Nothing like mixing apples
        Nothing like mixing apples and school districts or should i say Apples and Chemistry Regents.
        Seems like a large axe you are a grinding.
        As this and that are nothing to mix.
