It All Started in 1860
Shaw’s is one of the oldest continuously-operated supermarkets in the United States. Its New England roots were planted firmly in May of 1860, when George Clinton Shaw opened a small retail grocery store, located at 285 Middle Street in Portland, Maine. The store stocked 100 items, most of which were not available from local farmers.
Through the Years
In 1941, both Shaw’s and BPM stores adopted a bold new business model, converting to self-service grocery. In 1948, Shaw’s/BPM instituted the New England Food Buyers Association, a member-owned food co-op, to stay competitive with the “house brands” offered by large grocery chains.
Today, Shaw’s and its sister company Star Market continue to thrive and are working to become the favorite food and drug retailer of every state in which they operate. Shaw’s operates 150 stores throughout New England, which is part of a 2,200+ store operation that employs approximately 265,000 people nationwide.
