Last month, Stop & Shop became one of the first grocery chains in America to provide special early shopping hours for customers aged 60 and over designated by the CDC as most vulnerable to COVID-19. Today, the company is expanding this commitment through a new partnership with Uber Technologies Inc. that will provide half-price rides to and from all Stop & Shop stores for customers wishing to shop during these dedicated hours, a press release said. Stop & Shop’s special shopping hours — which allow for a less crowded environment to better enable social distancing — are available from 6 to 7:30 a.m. daily at all store locations. The Ridgefield Stop & Shop is located at 125 Danbury Road.
Starting on Wednesday, April 8, eligible customers will be able to use a special half-price code for Uber rides to and from their local Stop & Shop up to twice per week around the designated shopping hours. This program is available at all of Stop & Shop’s more than 400 stores across Massachusetts, Rhode Island, Connecticut, New York and New Jersey.
