Joint Statement by Stop & Shop and Township of Teaneck
Published on January 19, 2022
To Our Valued Teaneck Community:
Stop & Shop, in conjunction with the Township of Teaneck, is issuing this memo in the hope of dispelling the rumors circulating in the community that Stop & Shop’s Teaneck store might close. The Township never asked or pressured Stop & Shop to close its store and Stop & Shop is not looking to close or move from its present Teaneck location on American Legion Drive.
Consistent with our longstanding policies, the Township nor Stop & Shop will comment on active litigation, but we understand that there is public confusion over why Stop & Shop brought a lawsuit in response to the Township’s efforts to redevelop the American Legion Drive area.
What we can say is that Stop & Shop has no present plans to close the store. Both Stop & Shop and the Township share a goal of having Stop & Shop thrive and continue to serve the community of Teaneck, particularly as together we continue to navigate through these challenging times.
Thank you so much for choosing to shop here in Teaneck, and we hope that the steps we’re taking will benefit everyone for years to come.
Stop & Shop
Township of Teaneck
