Tisbury Police to help Stop & Shoppers


On Wednesday, Nov. 24, the day before Thanksgiving, members of the Tisbury Police Department will help Stop & Shop patrons load their groceries into their cars and take their carts back. This service will be taking place from 10 am to 4 pm. 

According to the announcement flyer, “We hope by doing this, it will not only allow cars to come and go more easily, but also allow the Stop & Shop employees to focus on helping inside the store … It doesn’t matter if you are there shopping for Thanksgiving or not — we will help!” 

A Tisbury Police cruiser will also be available to accept food donations for the holidays. The food items will be donated to the Island Food Pantry. 

Stop & Shop will be open on Wednesday, Nov. 24, from 6 am to 10 pm, and be closed on Thanksgiving day. 


  1. A great idea and a wonderful way to connect in a friendly way with the community! …. Happy Thanksgiving to the police 👮‍♀️🍁🦃!!!

  2. Thank you for that warm introduction, Donovan, you are a true friend. I will try not to let you down.
    It appears rather than playing grocery mules on Nov.24th, looking for the still missing firearm or conferencing to settle the outstanding lawsuits against the town, was just too imaginative.
    I mean, much better to deflect attention away from the unsettled matters.
    How did I do, Jim?

    • You did awesome. Mostly because this story actually has something to do with the TPD. As I’ve mentioned, I agree with you that the TPD seriously needs an overhaul. But you don’t come across as just some crackpot with an ax to grind when you keep your rants to articles that actually mention the TPD. You still have a ways to go, but you’re getting there…

  3. Everyone be careful, Sgt Gobble-gait might shoot up your shopping cart trying to hit that Turkey again…
