Teyanna Carey, a shopper said, "It kind of took me by surprise, because they were harsh, they were like, 'listen you guys are not going to support us', when we came out they were kind of sarcastic, and said 'thanks for the support'...I did feel a little bit bad at that point."
Stop & Shop said they are ready to get back to the bargaining table and the union steward tells News 8 they will join them when the company has a better offer.
