Bailard Real Estate Fund Buys Its Second Stop & Shop in Boston Metro

Bailard Real Estate Fund has purchased a 59,519-square-foot Stop & Shop at 468 Washington Street in Norwell, MA. The transaction marks the company’s second Stop & Shop acquisition in the Boston area.

“Stop & Shop is a premier supermarket operator in the market, evidenced by its robust sales,” said Tess Gruenstein, SVP of acquisitions and portfolio management at Bailard. “We were eager to add this location to our portfolio for its attractive location and cash flow yield,”

Stop & Shop is the dominant supermarket operator in New England by both total volume and store count, according to JLL. The company currently operates over 400 locations in the US, with 126 in MA. Stop & Shop is a division of Ahold Delhaize USA, Inc., which, as a combined entity, operates over 2,000 grocery stores, making it the third largest grocery operator in the US.

Nat Heald of JLL represented the seller in the transaction.
