I have been a long time customer of Stop and Shop. I live in Danbury CT (Store 644) and was harassed by an employee there at the Lake Avenue store. His name is Tom Olenski and he is the porter there. He has followed me around the store and verbally harassed me and stalked me. He even prevented me from entering the store one day by putting his body in my way so that I could not enter the store. I cannot shop in that store anymore out of fear for my safety.

Then I go to another store in New Milford (Store 683), when I visit a friend who resides there. I was verbally assaulted and harassed and followed up and down the aisles by a woman there who is a SAMPLER for the store and her name is Linda. I later on found out that Tom and Linda are dating each other. I cannot understand why these 2 people have taken up the crusade to harass me. I would have to assume that it is because I was once engaged to Tom.

I guess Linda has decided to make her own demands on me to give back a gift that I received from Tom. She told me that I was a thief and accused me of stealing from Tom, which is not true. I have never stolen anything in my entire life and I don't plan on it anytime soon. I was ill yesterday due to complications from Breast Cancer and to have this woman, Linda, harass me, follow me and verbally attack me INSIDE the store is just too much for me to bear.

All of this was done in front of customers presence as there were several people standing next to me when I got verbally assaulted. I would have spoken to the store manager in reference to it but because of my surgical procedure and not feeling well, I chose not to. However, I have an appointment today, June 15, 2012 to speak to him in reference to this. I would assume that it is not company policy to allow such behaviors from employees and outside vendors within the confines of the stores. 

I intend to have police action taken against both of them. As a result of this harassment, I will NEVER shop in another Stop and Shop again in fear for my safety from these two nuts. I have spoken to Tom Sullivan in the Danbury store and he did nothing to stop this harassment of his customer by his employee and his gf.

harassed by strange men at danbury stop and shop

AUTHOR: Anonymous - ()


I wanted to respond to the above complaint against Danbury Stop and Shop as I have had a similiar experience, with the exception of I do not know anyone employed there. 

Stop and shop is one of the few stores open late until 12 am , and I have completely stopped going there due to multiple occurences of which I was afraid and intimidated by employees at the store. 

There are many men working there , usually in the later hours between 10pm-12 am who are restocking the shelves. 

Due to my work, I can only go shopping during certain hours usually, so many times I would find myself needing to stop there until it got so bad I couldnt go there anymore and would just get fast food since no stores were open.

The men I am referring to are employees that are towards the back and seem to be restocking the shelves. Around 10 -11pm, they roll out massive pallets of products in tall plastic covering, and completely close up the aisle so that it is impossible to go down the entire back most aisle where the meat/refrigerated foods are usually kept. If you want to get something from that section, you have to leave your cart outside of the aisle and walk inbetween and sometimes on top of the pallets. While you are attempting to do this, there are several middle aged men in non uniforms using vulgur language, tossing boxes  in the air past your head , and generally being loud and abnoxious. One would think you walked into a sports bar instead of a grocery store.

On almost every occasion of visiting the store, at least two men would stare at me inappropriately. They would stare as I walked down the aisle , while looking me up and down , and constantly appearing out of nowhere throughout the store acting like they were "doing their job" when in fact it seemed like they just wanted to stare at me. They come down the aisle with one or two things completely seperate from things seen on the pallet, and pretend to put them on the shelves. Sometimes they will yell to each other if you are walking near the main aisle next to checkout and stare at you while they are doing it as if to show off and/or get your attention. 

These men all look , to be honest, like convicted felons. They are unshaven and often smell of alcohol. 

The people at the checkout are usually friendly but seem like they would not care if I reported any of these things. 

It has gotten to the point where I have completely stopped going to this location and any other Stop and Shop all together. I can not believe that this behavior is allowed but it has been happening for so long it seems like the management must not care. 

I feel bad for any other women shopping alone at night here, as it is a very unsafe and unsettling shopping experience past 10:30 pm.
