Unsafe! Stop & Shop
Despite Shop & Shop scoring a rating of “fair” when it comes to how clean their store is, they did not score too high when it came to what customers think of them, as they only got a 72 score. This is a bit of a weird balance, as while the store isn’t unsafe per se, people haven’t been happy with how it presents itself.
However, they have been taking the issue of the pandemic very seriously, even adding new standards to deal with the outbreak and making sure to outsource their cleaning procedures to a third-party cleaning service in order to add another level to their cleaning procedures.
This sounds like an amazing way to deal with everything. However, what probably earned them a few side-eyes and their poor rating on Consumer Report is the fact that they are known to not have enforced the mask mandate in their stores, which definitely wouldn’t have stood well with the customers that put the effort in to make sure they followed all the rules regarding the pandemic.
