Try Stop & Shops Own Brand Summer Challenge #Giveaway

Main Street Mama must admit at times I am a supermarket shopping snob. I do tend to buy name brands. I have always stated I am a  Kleenex, Scott and Dove Brand house. When we were invited to Try Stop & Shops Own Brand Summer Challenge, we accepted with pleasure. After all I know my brands, or so I thought I did!!

Stop & Shop is once again challenging customers to put their Own Brands products to the test this summer in the Buy Theirs, Get Ours Free Challenge. During the weeks of July 27 and August 3, and August 4-9th, when customers purchase selected national brand products, they will receive Stop & Shop Own Brands equivalent products for FREE. Isn’t that AWESOME??
As a regular in Stop & Shop and the shopping national brand snob that I admitted I was, testing out these own brands has been an eye waking experience. On vacation this week I took the National Brand and Own Brand version of Cheddar Baked Cracker Snack. Kid and Mom tested we all LOVED the Own Brand and the only difference we noticed was they seemed to like them better!

Check out more about the brand and the sales going on right now at Stop & Shop . On average, customers can expect to save 10 – 35% by purchasing Stop & Shop Own Brands instead of the national brand. For customers who may want to try before they buy, all Stop & Shop stores will sample select Own Brand products in-store on the weekends.

All Stop & Shop Own Brands products are subject to a rigorous testing program, which includes customer feedback to ensure that the grocer is consistently delivering on quality and value. Based on this testing, hundreds of Own Brands products have been reformulated in the recent years to improve upon taste and quality, while still offering affordable prices. If a product doesn’t pass these testing requirements, it doesn’t go on a Stop & Shop shelf!

Luna Park Magic In Our Own Backyard

Luna Park Magic In Our Own Backyard

As readers of Main Street Mama know we love to create memories and what better place to create memories then at Coney Island’s Luna Park, where magic is in our own backyard. With my husband and I being on different work vacation schedules life was made easier by going local and visiting all the attractions close to home during our summer staycations. On our bucket list was a childhood favorite of mine Coney Island and Luna Park. We first took our son to Coney Island when they had thought about closing it when he was only 3 months old, and when they built Luna Park we were thrilled and have visited every summer since .


With Summer winding down, there is still sometime to create your own family memories. Luna Park is offering a great deal when you buy 1 wristband you get one free, so grab some friends and head on out to Luna Park for a day or night filled with Magic.

In a new twist on fairytale fun, favorite Disney characters compete to be the next superstar in comical segments leading up to the tales of show stopping princesses – Ariel, Rapunzel, Belle, and Merida fromDisney•Pixar’s BRAVE in her ice debut!

Produced by Feld Entertainment, Rockin’ Ever After remixes the stories of Disney’s most adventurous heroines with upbeat music and energetic choreography that will have audiences singing, dancing and cheering for their beloved Disney idols. Mickey and Minnie encounter the most talented performers in the land with an all-star lineup that includes Sebastian and the Daughters of Triton from The Little Mermaid, the rowdy pub thugs from Tangled and the spunky enchanted servants from Beauty and the Beast. The journey continues to the Scottish highlands where audiences will be captivated and star struck by Merida, as an exhilarating archery contest ensues for the right to marry the fiery redhead.
