The Stop & Shop in Ridgewood to close during renovations


The Stop & Shop in Ridgewood to close during renovations

JULY 10, 2014    LAST UPDATED: THURSDAY, JULY 10, 2014, 3:18 PM

The Stop & Shop in Ridgewood is temporarily closing its doors for a five to six-week renovation, which began on Thursday.

According to Kenny Demchak, assistant store manager, the entire store will be remodeled over the summer, although the floor layout will remain the same.

“We will be adding new floors, redoing shelves and fixtures, adding new signs and expanding our natural and organic food section,” said Demchak.

The second floor pharmacy and liquor store will remain open for customers throughout the renovation, with new store hours for those departments changing during the remodeling.

Parking on the Stop & Shop grounds will be prohibited and strictly enforced throughout the renovation, except for patrons shopping at the pharmacy and liquor store.

An exact date on when Stop & Shop will reopen its doors remains uncertain.

“If all goes according to plan, we hope to reopen by Labor Day and before school begins,” said Demchak. “We will keep customers notified of our reopening by posting updates on our website and with signs in our Ridgewood store windows.”

New pharmacy and liquor store hours are as follows: Monday to Friday, 9 a.m. to 9 p.m.; Saturday, 9 a.m. to 5 p.m.; and Sunday, noon to 3 p.m.
