Stop & Shop, what a monopoly in CT!

I can’t stand Stop & Shop, but they are everywhere! I currently live on the shoreline and there are two within a mile or two of my house. I am moving next week upstate a bit, and much to my chagrin...Stop & Shop is the nearest grocery store yet again. Their deli is atrocious, their produce is rarely good...I can’t tell you the countless times I have had to pick through almost rotten tomatoes. Am I the only one who thinks by dominating the market they have not only pushed out competition, but drove out quality along with it?

So, although the next closest grocery store to me will be a few miles down the road, I will officially become a Shaw’s customer. Hopefully they are better than Stop & Shop has been. I can’t really see how they’d be worse!
