The Stop & Shop Supermarket Co. LLC, a Quincy based chain of more than 400 stores, said that it will officially celebrate the opening of its second Nantucket location at 5 a.m. this Friday, June 28.

The new store, located at 9 Salem St. just blocks from the Ferry, is stocked with fresh produce, seafood, meats, and Stop & Shop’s Own Brand products.

(In March, Stop & Shop said it acquired the lease of the former Grand Union location at 9 Salem St.)

As part of the opening hoo-ha, Stop & Shop said it plans to give away 1,500 sand pails filled with items such as snacks, suntan lotion, and toiletry items.

“Stop & Shop is proud to be a long-term member of the Nantucket community,” Joe Kelley, president of Stop & Shop’s New England division, said in a statement. “We are thrilled to open our new store, and to expand our product offerings and great customer service to the island. This additional location will help us better serve the needs of Nantucket residents and visitors alike.”
