Have to say the first Stop & Shop I ever visited was in NH. Loved the store. They were also good about hiring those that are as we say today, “challenged”. Too bad that unions are killing off another business.

Say what you want about Wal-Mart, but they try to do this also, giving “challenged” people a break...there was a cashier at one around here on the 20 items or less lane; he was a little slower and it ticked me off that customers would try to avoid him, and wouldn’t help him push stuff towards the scanner...like a valuable minute or two out of their busy goobery lives would be too costly to help the guy out. Unfortunately, I think his health declined further and I haven’t seen him in a while.
They were among the first to give attention to handicapped customers. This was good business. I hated shopping in crowds so it wasn’t unusual for me to shop at 11 or midnight several years ago. Surprise! MOST of the people in the place were handicapped and on carts (and not the 400 pound people you see during the day). The handicapped parking was full and the rest of the lot pretty empty. They don’t like crowds, either, for practical reasons!
I would almost get run over in the aisles.
