     EVEN SANTA ENJOYS ONE-STOP SHOPPING AT STOP & SHOP SUPERMARKETS
    QUINCY, Mass., Nov. 5 /PRNewswire/ -- Consumers will find more than just groceries when they shop at Stop & Shop Supermarkets this holiday season.  In addition to a wide array of foods and services, shoppers will be interested in a number of holiday highlights.
    Santa Dollars
    Those interested in helping the needy this holiday season will be able to do so with the purchase of a "Santa Dollar," a popular holiday novelty item.  Available from November 17 through December 31, for $2.00 plus tax, "Santa Dollars" are real $1.00 bills adorned with a removable sticker of Santa's face.  Each Santa Dollar comes with a festive greeting card and envelope.  For every Santa Dollar sold, Stop & Shop will donate 50 cents to the food banks of Connecticut, Massachusetts and Rhode Island.  In 1990, over $130,000 were given to the Food Banks through the Santa Dollars program.
    Discounts with USAir
    Holiday travelers won't want to miss the savings opportunity currently available at Stop & Shop stores.  Shoppers can save 20-25 percent on USAir and USAir Express flights within the continental United States.  With a Stop & Shop purchase of $50, shoppers are eligible to buy up to six travel coupons for just $5 a piece.  Each coupon offers a savings of 20 percent on USAir ticket purchases of $125 or more, and 25 percent on ticket purchases of $400 or more. Coupons will be sold through Jan. 4, 1992, and can be used for travel through March 31, 1992.  They make a great stocking stuffer, too. Please note:  the USAir coupons must be filled out with the traveler's name at the time of purchase, and certain travel restrictions apply.
    One-Stop Shopping
    Among other one-stop shopping conveniences available at Stop & Shop stores, gift givers can choose from holiday wreaths and poinsettias in the florist shop, as well as fruit baskets from the produce department. Movie buffs will enjoy a copy of their favorite video from Super Stop & Shop Video Centers and the Barnes & Noble Bookstore will offer shoppers a large variety of popular titles at discount prices -- hard cover selections from the Barnes & Noble best seller listing at 30 percent off the publisher's prices and 10 percent off all best-selling paperbacks.
    Home-made Gift Ideas
    Those who are ambitious as well as cost-conscious will find everything they need to make their own creative gifts -- from fruit preserves and flavored vinegars to baskets filled with gourmet treats. The new homeowner will enjoy a stock pot filled with gadgets for the kitchen including measuring cups, ladles, whisks and more, and the handyman will enjoy a tool box stocked with such necessities as a hammer, wrench and screw driver.
    The Stop & Shop Supermarket Company, one of the Stop & Shop Companies, Inc., is the largest supermarket chain in New England and operates 117 stores in Massachusetts, Connecticut, Rhode Island and Poughkeepsie, N.Y.
