The Berkshire Eagle reports  Stop & Shop closed for a second day because of a gas leak, but could reopen this evening.

The store had originally hoped to open by midday on Thursday but now expects to be running again by 6 p.m.

The customer service desk told The Eagle that staff first noticed the leak when they entered the store early on Wednesday morning. The North Adams Fire Department then shut down the building, according to customer service representative Anna Ramos.

She said that the store currently has no heat or hot water, and the delay in reopening came because plumbers had to get the necessary parts to repair the building’s heating system.
