There's always a "but" !

It's official, this is the one retailer that I patronize far more than any other! This Stop and Shop is the only major supermarket within about least two miles, and it's tucked out of sight, off the town's main commercial strip, Cedar Lane. You wouldn't know this supermarket is even back there if weren't already familiar.

This store location depends upon Teaneck and Bogota residential traffic almost exclusively. There is a Bravo supermarket that opened in Spring of 2012 directly on Cedar Lane, but it's much smaller and has been slow catching on. Anyone in a wider radius has several options in Bergenfield, Hackensack and Paramus. This S&S location is not tiny - it's full sized, just not as large as the ones in Dumont and South Hackensack. If you follow the sales, and submit to the little plastic savings card hustle that every darn store inflicts on the public, you might find it adequate. It pays to grab a shopping cart as soon as you exit your car if one is nearby in the lot because the supply at the front door is usually low.

Stop and Shop has self checkout lanes. Pathmark/A&P also has the self checkout lanes, but only Stop and Shop has one excellent exclusive feature for now that can save you time if you're lucky. You can scan your store card as you enter and get your own personal scanner to beep each item as you take it from the shelf. You should have your own reusable bags by now, but there are bags are there at the scanners. You scan and bag as you shop. Not only does that mean you can check prices of any items, but when you go to checkout - one beep of the scanner and of your card, and your entire list of items you selected unfolds on the screen! Just pay and you are through! It can literally take less than a minute!

The part about "if you're lucky" is the flaw in this system: you might still be delayed if you find yourself stuck in line behind one of the many fellow patrons that still do not choose to use this hand scanner system and load up their carts for themselves or the cashier to scan and bag one by one at checkout. This location may have started offering a checkout lane reserved solely for those that have already scanned and bagged their items as they shopped. This would make the process flawlessly easy.

What very few non users of the personal scanners realize is the use of them may result in a few more cents off selected items, on national as well as store brands. I am a willing convert to this "U Scan It" system, and miss it when I am in other markets.

Most items that show "2fer" or however many "fer" pricing allows you to get the discount when buying just one. Frequently, Pathmark will require you buy the multiple quantities to get any discount at all - a surprise you might not realize until checkout. Stop and Stop seems to want to be famous for a 10 for $10 pricing gimmick, and often, it can turn out to be a real bargain that can help you stock your pantry.

They have a NJ lottery terminal, but this is not the place to go to if you are rushing to make the midday or evening drawing cutoff deadlines. In fact, most supermarkets do not have a dedicated lottery terminal clerk that is particularly adept with the keyboard nor aware of the need to be on their toes around crunch time.

I have found the staff at this Teaneck location to be friendly and accommodating, especially those I've seen there for a long time. There's always the newbie or the grumpy one, but try standing on your feet for your entire shift - it's no fun, and they have to endure the bad seeds among the customer crowd as well. The shopping public is chock full of nuts! I have better empathy for that after working retail for a spell.

Bottom line, I recommend shopping here, unless you are targeting specific gourmet items, or beer/wine. They have a section near deli where they try to offer some prepared foods, fancy cheeses and such. This location has no beer/wine/alcohol, and they reduced their seafood department to packaged items instead of a manned station.
