Star Market

Proudly serving New England communities for over one hundred years. Star Market’s New England roots were firmly planted in 1860, when George C. Shaw opened his first store in Portland, Maine. A few years later, another native New Englander, Maynard A. Davis, opened his first ‘Public Markets’ in Brockton and New Bedford, Massachusetts. Together, these two men sowed the seeds that would one day become Shaw’s Supermarkets, Inc. And over the past 150 years, their growth can be directly attributed to the ingenuity of these two men and their belief in offering quality products and quality service. Today, Shaw’sĀ® and Star MarketĀ® continue to thrive, employing approximately 25,000 associates in Maine, Massachusetts, New Hampshire, Rhode Island, and Vermont.
