Medford you ask? There is a super Stop and Shop at Wellington Plaza at the southeast corner of Medford, a Shaws across from Meadow Glen Mall not too far off, and a Whole Foods at the other side of town nearer to West Medford.

The S&S is the largest all right but it is a mammoth store which can be daunting for elderly and disabled to move around in. I like Stop and Shop the most out of all local supermarket chains but the footprint a store like this has got to be really big. Not to mention the urge for shoppers to overindulge in groceries.

The Shaws is easier to handle but I hate it that their prices are often higher than S&S's.

Whole Foods is the neatest and prettiest store with some of the freshest organic foods but by far the priciest, so much that an ordinary commoner like me gets priced out of shopping there frequently .

So there, I can't help you decide which supermarket in Medford is the nicest because they all have good/bad qualities.

Nancy, Stop & Shop also has a service that will deliver your groceries if you can't get to the store.

Thanks, Casey.

Oh, I can get to the store all right. I love stores. All kinds from outlets to malls to supermarkets. It is just Freeways (a California term, I know) that I cannot drive on. I'm looking forward to exploring my new city, the museums , parks and Quincy Market. Drives to Salem (where my Goth daughter would like to visit) and Cape Cod. Martha's Vineyard. New Hampshire. Can't wait . I even have my Charlie Card already to go for traveling inside Boston.

People may not recall what you said to them, but they will always remember how you made them feel .
