Customers Can Relive the Decade with Easy Access to Over Hundreds of Products
Stop & Shop 90s Nostalgia Site
Stop hundreds of your favorite throwbacks from the decade of snap bracelets and scrunchies.
QUINCY, Mass., Oct. 28, 2020 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Stop & Shop today announced the launch of a new, nostalgic customer experience featuring favorites from the 90s. As the decade continues to make a strong comeback in fashion, pop culture – and food – Stop & Shop has curated a special selection of groceries that includes some of the most recognizable products across six major categories: breakfast, lunch, snacks, dinner, desserts and beverages. With a design inspired by Saved By the Bell, the new site lets customers shop throwbacks like Fruit Gushers™ and Chips Ahoy!, plus hundreds of other products that, to borrow a 90s catchphrase, are “all that and a bag of chips.”
“Food is a source of comfort for many people and making sure our stores are stocked with customer favorites – new and old – is a top priority for our brand,” said Gordon Reid, President of Stop & Shop. “We will continue to do our part to take care of our customers during these changing times, and we hope this trip down memory lane includes a few treats that will make them smile.”
This year marked the re-launch of the cookie and frosting combo Dunkaroos® as well as Twix® Cookies & Crème as more brands continue to bring back best-sellers from the decade of slap bracelets and scrunchies. General Mills also relaunched Trix cereal along with classics like Cocoa Puffs, Cookie™ Crisp and Golden Grahams™ cereals. Customers can now shop these retro items and other 90s food and drink products including the following:
Breakfast: Kellogg's Froot Loops® Cereal, Eggo® Waffles and Pop-Tarts®
Lunch: Smucker's Uncrustables®, Totino's Pizza Rolls and Lunchables
Snacks: Fruit Gushers™, Chex Mix™ and Fruit Roll-Ups™
Desserts: Chips Ahoy!, Popsicle® Firecracker® Ice Pops and Pillsbury Confetti™ Funfetti® Vanilla Flavored Frosting
Beverages: Kool-Aid Jammers, SunnyD and CAPRI SUN
While the notion of nostalgia is nothing new for consumers, the onset of the COVID-19 pandemic, social distancing and other changes related to how we live, have created an increase in sentimental shopping and a yearning for what’s familiar and comforting. Add to that a demand for more personalized ecommerce experiences, where consumers easily can find online a curated index of what they want. This special section of the Stop & Shop website, with a spotlight on 90s brands, intersects the nostalgia and personalized shopping trends – instantly transporting customers back in time, while offering an easy, online shopping experience, with throwback products available at their fingertips.
