Stop & Shop
Expertise: Consumer, Government Relations, Public Affairs, Public Relations, Real Estate
Our firm was hired to help Stop & Shop permit the expansion of existing stores in multiple Massachusetts cities and the construction of a new Super Stop & Shop in Revere, MA. These projects were extremely complex, involving significant political and community resistance, obtaining variances and special permits, negotiating conservation land and historic district issues and receiving crucial Massachusetts Highway Department approvals for traffic and roadway modifications.
Collaborating with local counsel, developers, architects and civil engineers, we developed and executed an integrated program to build support of the project on both the community and state levels. Our team managed all aspects of the campaign including community relations, media relations, government affairs, grassroots organization, advertising and marketing.
Our team gained the necessary political and community support for all projects resulting in successful permitting, siting and expansion. The most recent project received necessary permits within 90 days of implementing our integrated communications program.
