Darien Stop & Shop customers who used one of the self-checkout scanners may be the victims of identity theft, the grocery company has announced. Someone illegally installed a skimming device (or “skimmer”) at that register at the Stop & Shop in the Goodwives Shopping Center at 25 Old Kings Hwy. North. The skimmer was attached for five days at the end of last month — from April 26 to 30 at the Darien store, according to the company. If you may have opted for self-checkout at the Darien supermarket from April 26 to 30, you may want to check the account of any card you may have used to see if there are suspicious transactions, the Stop & Shop announcement said.

Stop and Shop announced days ago that its stores would be open solely to seniors in the very early hours of each day. Palmer’s Market in Darien also announced curbside and delivery service for people who need it. On Wednesday, Whole Foods Market announced its stores were also taking steps to keep their stores safer for shoppers. Trader Joe’s has stopped all food sampling in its stores and changed its hours to give staff more time to make sure stores are well-sanitized. Here’s a rundown:
Whole Foods Market: 8 to 9 AM for 60+ Seniors
“Starting on Wednesday, March 18, all Whole Foods Market stores in the U.S. and Canada will service customers who are 60 and older one hour before opening to the general public, under the new adjusted hours posted on the store’s web page,” the company announced on its website.
