Stop & Shop plans to close a supermarket in Malden

The Stop & Shop Supermarket Co. LLC said Thursday that it is closing its store located at 60 Broadway in Malden on or before Feb. 8.

The Quincy-based chain noted that it operates three other stores within a two-mile radius of that location, including a store in Malden, and a fourth store about 3.4 miles away.

“We consistently review our stores in each market area,” Stop & Shop said in a statement. “At this time, we feel that we can continue to serve the Malden community with the additional store in Malden as well as stores in the surrounding locations.... All associates currently employed at this store will be offered positions at other stores.”
