Too much Stop, not enough Shop

Posted by Ralph Ranalli October 7, 2007 10:41 AM



Representatives from a developer who has pledged to bring a Stop & Shop supermarket to the town center will meet with selectmen Oct. 15 about repeated delays that have hit the project.

Town officials have questioned whether Stop & Shop actually intends to build on the land, known in town as the "moonscape" for its unsightly appearance. Selectman Jim Lehan said he would like to see the company take a step that shows it will build a store, such as creating an access road on the property.

"That's the kind of thing that, to me, would show that they're serious," Lehan said.
