A popular East Side market is being bought by the company that operates Stop & Shop.

Eastside Marketplace owner Scott Laurans confirmed Tuesday that a deal is in place with Ahold USA, the parent company of Stop & Shop and Giant supermarkets, to purchase the Pitman Street market.

Laurans says he plans to keep the existing 168 employees and management team in place, and will continue to operate the business as “Eastside Marketplace”.

He will remain in an advisory role, and general manager Brian Pacheco will continue in his current position. 

Eastside Marketplace has been around since 1981.
