"Ok, I don't know where else to ask this, but I'm hoping that you can use your sources to unravel this mystery! Last Thursday (Sept 16) the Stop & Shop at 64-65 Myrtle Ave abruptly closed for "renovations". We noticed that in the weeks leading up to the closure that the stock throughout the store was becoming depleted, and finally on the Monday prior to the closure a single sheet of paper appeared on the entrance announcing that they would be closing for renovations that following week and directed the customers to shop at their other locations. No date was given for the reopening, and none of the staff or managers at he store would give us a date that they would be reopened.
In the past week they seemed to have completely gutted the store and have covered all of the outside signage. The location has also disappeared from the S&S corporate website. The Key Foods location down the block on Myrtle has also started a promotion where if you turn in your S&S club card for a Key Foods card, you get an additional 5% off your groceries.
So what's the deal? S&S was by far the best supermarket in the area and the only decent one within walking distance. Is it going to reopen better than before or is the the neighborhood out of luck?" - Molly
Looked up the DOB info on this place, and it does seem that there is renovation work going on, specifically "RENOVATIONS TO EXISTING STOP & SHOP STORE CONSISTING OF GENERAL CONSTRUCTION WORK AS PER PLANS FILED HEREWITH. NO CHANGE TO USE, EGRESS OR OCCUPANCY."
As this is pretty extensive work, they may not know how long the place will be closed. Please keep us posted.
