 BRAINTREE, Mass., May 26 /PRNewswire/ -- The Stop & Shop Companies, Inc. (NYSE: SHP) held its annual meeting today at the Sheraton-Tara Hotel in Braintree.
 Chairman Lewis G. Schaeneman, Jr., announced that Robert G. Tobin, president and chief operating officer of the company, was elected to the board of directors.

Tobin was appointed executive vice president of sales and marketing in April 1985, became chief operating officer in October of the same year and was appointed president in 1989.

 In addition, the company announced that sales for the first fiscal quarter which ended Saturday, May 22, 1993, increased 5.4 percent -- 5.1 percent from new stores and .3 percent from comparable stores.
