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.
