Quincy, Mass. Stop & Shop Supermarket Co.'s parent company has launched a corporate reorganization that could lead to the loss of many jobs in the supermarket chain's Quincy, Mass., offices, according to a Patriot Ledger report.
A spokeswoman for Ahold USA Retail confirmed that there is a new structure for the company’s U.S. retail merchandising and marketing organization, and that its nonperishable and fresh merchandising functions will be based in Carlisle, Pa.
The company said Stop & Shop will remain one of the state's biggest employers, with more than 20,000 workers in Massachusetts.
Stop & Shop employed more than 800 people at its Quincy headquarters as of five years ago, according to the report.
