Stop and Shop Begins Process For New Store on Nantucket

nantucket harborNANTUCKET – Stop and Shop officials have applied for a building permit as they take the next step towards building a new 4.6 million dollar store on Nantucket.

The Inquirer and Mirror reports the store will begin downsizing its current building by about one-third to create room for new parking; Plans then call for the new store to be constructed.

A new store was approved by the planning board in May; two neighbors are currently appealing that decision in Boston Land Court.
