Founded in 1914 as the Economy Grocery Store, the Stop & Shop chain now includes more than 400 stores in the northeastern U.S. with more than 60,000 associate employees.
Quincy's city library, the Thomas Crane Public Library, was originally funded by the family of stone contractor Thomas Crane as a memorial to his success in the quarry industry. Constructed in 1882, the library is known for its magnificent architecture, which features stained glass, an elegant carved fireplace and intricate stone carvings. In 2007, the American Institute of Architects ranked the library among its favorite U.S. buildings. In 1987, the main library was added to the list of National Historic Landmarks. The building is fully accessible to those with disabilities. Some handicapped-friendly features include designated parking spaces, automatic door openers, elevators on all floors, accessible restrooms, large-print computer keyboards and wheelchair-accommodating sit-down computer terminals, hand-held magnifiers and Braille books available through interlibrary loan.
