Stop And Praise
I am writing this letter to commend the managers of the Arverne Stop & Shop, located at Beach 67 Street. This supermarket, went above-and-beyond to help and serve this community. After the storm hit, the supermarket closed for a couple days, then, reopened. Inside, the managers set up benches, tables and outlets for the community, so that they could come in and charge their cell phones. They did not seem to mind that this meant that groups of people would have to hang around the store for several hours, charging their laptops, cell phones and the like.
I came to the realization that this supermarket has become a real life-line for our neighborhood. If this supermarket had not opened up here, then this community as a whole, would have been in serious trouble, especially since the other supermarkets in the area, two Keyfoods and Waldbaum’s, have not been able to reopen since the storm struck.
Thank you Stop & Shop for being our go-to place.
