Stop & Shop, the long-awaited grocery store in the N-Squared Innovation District, is set to open with a Grand Opening Celebration on December 14.
As far as supermarkets go, this one is relatively small at less than 20,000 square feet of floor space, but we're told it's more of a neighborhood concept, with a focus on prepared foods and fresh items. This has been a long-awaited part of the Newton Nexus development on Needham Street and adds a much-needed amenity to the area.
After the grand opening, including a ribbon cutting scheduled for 11am, the store will feature several weeks of festivities.
The interior of the shop is taking shape and they have started hiring staff.
