An almost empty parking lot at Stop and Shop on Newtown Rd.
As the Stop and Shop worker's strike enters the sixth day, this morning I decided to pay a visit to the supermarket at the Nutmeg Square in Danbury to see how the store is holding up and to talk to the workers on the picket line to get their take on the situation.
As a frequent customer at Stop and Shop, I was curious to see if the strike had any noticeable impact the store so I decided to visit the supermarket around 12:00 since it's usually packed with customers during that time.
As I walked around the store, to say that the place looked like a ghost town would be an understatement. I counted only four customers inside the store, a closed deli and bakery department as well as a near-empty produce department. There were no cashiers or customer service staff insight as what few customers in the place were forced to use the automated check-out stations.

After touring the store, I went to the picket line and talked to several workers who wanted to comment on the strike and express their gratitude for the show of support they've received from the public.
