retail news in context, analysis with attitude

The Boston Globe reports that Ahold-owned Stop & Shop has decided to close its six stores and three gas stations in New Hampshire, saying that were underperforming.

The story says that the stores will close by September 21

Stop & Shop said that while the closures will leave the company without a physical New Hampshire presence, it will continue to provide its Peapod home delivery service to a number of southern New Hampshire communities.

Stop & Shop will continue to operate more than 400 stores in Massachusetts, Connecticut, Rhode Island, New Hampshire, New York, and New Jersey.
