Disclosure: I was invited to this Stew Leonards event, as always, my posts are based on my opinions and experiences.
Living in Connecticut everyone knows about Stew Leonards! We all love the food, the ice cream, the animals and how they are a generous member of the community with so many donations and good will. So when I got the invite to a media event with tour of Stew Leonards with THE Stew Leonards Jr, we were in!

From its humble beginnings as a small dairy store founded in 1969 with seven employees, Stew Leonard’s has grown to become not only the World’s Largest Dairy Store, but one of the most renowned grocery stores, with annual sales of almost $400 million and almost 2,000 Team Members. In addition to the headquarters store in Norwalk, Conn., Stew Leonard’s has stores in Danbury, Conn. and Yonkers, N.Y and Newington, Conn.
Some new Stew’s products to look forward especially for back-to-school.

Stew Leonard’s has a great relationship with their ranchers, who run family businesses and raise some of the finest beef you‘ll find anywhere. Stew and his butchers personally visit the ranchers regularly to ensure there is a continued offer of only the finest, high-quality beef in the Stew Leonard stores.
