Stew Leonard’s employees walk to work post-blizzard

Stew Leonard’s stores in Connecticut and New York opened early Tuesday morning after the height of the winter storm that hit the Northeast, thanks, in part, to some employees who walked to work.

A few of its stores were open by 7 a.m., a time when travel bans were still in effect.

While some Facebook fans were appreciative, many criticized the retailer for allowing employees to travel during the storm.

In response, Stew Leonard’s followed up with a post: 

SN spoke to an associate at the Newington, Conn., store. She wasn’t among those who walked to work. She said road conditions weren’t ideal, but traveling wasn’t too difficult in her four-wheel drive vehicle.

“It wasn’t so bad,” she said.

She said the store had many staples in stock, except bread.
