I heart Stop and Shop

So, today Mr. Newlywed Giggles and I went food shopping at Stop and Shop just because it was next door to the Target and all I wanted to do was to pick up a few items for dinner. Well, it turned out a whole cart full by the time we were done, but it was stuff we needed it anyways.

I love Stop and Shop. Why you ask? Because of these simple but yet so handy tools they have:
  1. Scan It! You can walk into the store, head over to the Solution Center and pick up a little scanner that conveniently sits in a compartment that was built on the Stop and Shop carts. You pretty much walk around with the scanner and bags and as you shop, scan the item, bag it in your cart and that's it. Once you get to the cash register, hand over the scanning machine and it has your total and all you do is pay and walk out! How awesome is that. We did not try this since it was our first time in the store, but the next time I go, I will most definitely head over to grab one of those machines!
  2. Weigh It! When you are in the fruits and vegetables section, you can weigh your stuff AND price it out, print your sticker and put it right on the bag so when you make it to the the register, they just scan and bag. No waiting for the cash register associate to weight it and figure out what fruit or vegetable you have in the bag.
  3. Order It! Mr. Newlywed Giggles wanted to get some cold cuts. Of course there is always a long line at the Deli, but Stop and Shop has a kiosk that you can put your order in and a ticket prints out. There is a number on the ticket. While you wait, you can continue to do some shopping and when your order is ready, an automated message is sent over the loudspeaker throughout the supermarket saying so and so number is ready for pick-up at the deli. AWESOME, I know!
So, I think from now on, I will be a new Stop and Shop customer. Even Mr. Newlywed Giggles was impressed with some of the tools they offered! If you haven't checked one out, I highly recommend it. Their prices are great and it seemed that 80% of the stuff we got was all on sale.

OK, now I'm done talking about food shopping!

The joys of getting excited when food shopping...

Whole foods is much better and cheaper. Stop and Shop does not care about people, seniors, veterens and their employees. You should boycott stop and shop. Whole foods is an excellent company with great prices.

we go to stop and shop in lyndhurst alot.. because it's never crowded. I don't think they have that scanner thing... sounds cool... but what about the dishonest people in the world??? would they actually scan every item? the deli kiosk we do use alot... shoprite has it too. stop and shop's prices aren't too bad depending on the items...
