STOP & SHOP CUSTOMERS DISCOVER PLETHORA OF PUMPKIN ITEMS Back by popular demand with new items for limited time only

Purchase, NY (August 28, 2015) – Due to customer demand and just in time for September, Stop & Shop New York Metro Division is bringing back pumpkin Limited Time Originals private label items. More than 50 seasonal pumpkin-packed products in both the non-perishable and fresh departments can be found in all stores beginning August 28. However, these pumpkin products are only available for a short time, so grab them before they’re gone.

With a limited launch last fall, Stop & Shop is introducing some new and unique pumpkin products while bringing back some customer favorites. Items range from pumpkin-infused everyday products like pasta sauce, ice cream, waffles and hummus to specialty meal solutions like pumpkin fully cooked organic chicken, pumpkin & sage ravioli and pumpkin bisque. Or pick up pumpkin cheesecake cookies, pumpkin cinnamon rolls or pumpkin gelato for your next autumn celebration!

“Last year, Stop & Shop’s Own Brands Pumpkin items were a hit with customers and we are excited to usher in this season with an expanded offering of pumpkin-inspired items for them, said Arlene Putterman, Manager of Public and Community Relations at Stop & Shop New York Metro Division. “The Own Brands Pumpkin collection is another example of Stop & Shop’s commitment to providing both exciting gourmet options and affordability for our shoppers.”
