Hyannis Flyer Redux
Well, chalk another one up for corporate greed.
The national Stop and Shop has decided to no longer honor the Hyannis flyer at the Nantucket Stop and Shop.
The message came across the Facebook group “Nantucketers for Fair Grocery Pricing,” posted by member Liz Scavilla: “IMPORTANT: Stop & Shop Corporate has decided to terminate price matching any other flyers on Nantucket other than the flyer provided in the Nantucket store. This means no more Cape flyer, or any other flyer for tht matter, is allowed to be used. They are claiming our 2 page flyer will have Cape prices on it, but who's to say the Cape flyer doesn't have Hyannis prices on it. Nevermind ALL of the items we won't have access to on sale anymore.
If you have any questions or have something to say about this, feel free to contact Suzi Robinson at S&S PR & Community Relations at 617-774-4434, [email protected], or David Monast, Nantucket S&S store manager at 508-228-2178.”
I tried calling Suzi Robinson, and got a voicemail saying she was out of town; David Monast was not available to callers. I called the general consumer service number (1-800-767-7772) and the customer service rep was very nice and is reporting my concerns.
The response on the Facebook group is continuing. Many are considering a boycott, changing regular business to the Grand Union, and shopping more off-island.
I miss the all the food co-ops I’ve belonged to, in Lexington, Kentucky; Madison, Wisconsin; and Winona, Minnesota.
