Farmingville To Get First Long Island Stop & Shop Gas Station

Supermarket chain will break into Long Island petrol market for first time.

Long Island will be getting its first-ever Stop & Shop gas station in the coming months as construction has begun at the location in Farmingville, Patch has learned.

Holtsville-based Aventura Construction Corp is currently building the gas station at the corner of North Ocean Avenue and Horseblock Road in Farmingville. The company known more around Long Island for selling lettuce than unleaded, operates a number of Stop N' Shop gas stations in New England. 

Arlene Putterman, a spokesperson for Stop & Shop, confirmed that this is the company's flagship footprint on Long Island, but could not provide other details such as square footage. Putterman said the company does not have a definite opening date either. 

Patch will update this story when further details are determined.

Why ANOTHER gas station?! There are at least 3 within a one mile radius of that location. How about something more useful that doesn't rip us off?

Awesome! that side needed another gas station. The Hess on that side is always packed...hoping this will ease up the lines at Hess...Wish it was a Mobil or Shell though. Only downside I can think of is the traffic on N. Ocean and the day laborers/loiterers across (they need to clean that up).

This is no big deal. The site was a gas station before anyway.

Brookhaven Town plans have revealed another planned location, corner of Horseblock and Station, close to their Medford store.

I called Stop and Shop today...told them the Shell Stations are ripping us off...they raised their prices so that if you use your points, say 300, your getting the "discount" that is equal to the guy down the block selling his gas 30 cents less. They asked if we have a Stop n Shop Gas station near us...I said first one is going up as we speak the next town over from us. Hope Ronkonkoma is next...it's all about the Benjamins !!!
