Easter holidays, people have turned to local grocery stores to meet their family needs.
Unionized Stop & Shop workers have been striking for 10 days now in what has become the longest strike in Stop & Shop history. The popular supermarket chain remains open but with limited services.
Although many customers have expressed frustrations over the strike, local customers support Stop & Shop workers. A Leeds man told 22News, he made sure to do his Easter shopping earlier this week to avoid long lines at other supermarkets like Big Y.
"I'm pretty sure Stop & Shop can afford to take care of their employees really should, Lamb said. "Stop & Shop has been a staple of New England for my entire life. I'm 42 years old. Tell me Stop & Shop can't help its employees, come on. "
Stop & Shop released a statement Saturday afternoon says" Stop & Shop stores in Massachusetts, Connecticut and Rhode Island will be open from noon. 8am for dinner on Easter Sunday "but that" bakery, customer sales and seafood counters will not be operational. "
Negotiations Continue, but there is no sign that the Stop & Shop strike ends anytime soon.
