Stop & Shop has been a neighborhood grocer across the Northeast for more than a century. Known for its convenient locations, it leads in market share among its traditional competitors with 413 stores in 5 states along with more than 100 gas stations. However, competitive pressures intensified over the past several years, making it critical to evolve in a meaningful way.

Key Topics of Discussion:

  • The power of empathy and customer understanding — a look at real life for our customers
