• Stop & Shop strike cost company about $100 million


    BOSTON - The owners of New England's largest supermarket chain are projecting around $100 million in losses from the labor strike that ended Easter Sunday.

    Ahold Delhaize, the Dutch company that owns Stop & Shop, said the 11-day strike is expected to lead to profit losses between $90 million and $110 million.

    The company says generally lower sales, lost revenue from "seasonal and perishable inventory" and supply chain costs were the main drivers. It said the strike will also mean its 2019 operating margins will be "slightly" lower than 2018.

    Stop & Shop officials and the United Food and Commercial Workers union reached a tentative, three-year agreement Sunday. Some 31,000 workers at 240 stores in Massachusetts, Rhode Island and Connecticut returned to work Monday.

    Union members are voting on the proposal Wednesday and Thursday.

    Can Stop & Shop recover from strike?
