Big news, Berkshire County! A local Northeast institution is holding a 1-day Job Fair on Saturday, February 25th, and they are looking for the right people to fill over 700 positions.

Perhaps one of those "right people" is YOU. The supermarket chain that operates over 400 stores in Connecticut, New Jersey, New York, Rhode Island, and Massachusetts(including three right here in Berkshire County!) is holding a job fair on February 25 for just one day.

Of course, I'm talking about Stop & Shop! According to a media statement, from 11 a.m. until 5 p.m. on Saturday, Stop and Shop will be holding an all-store career fair in Western Massachusetts.

A lot of folks may not know this but way, way, wayyyyy back in the day, yours truly(before getting into the radio thing) worked at Stop & Shop on Merrill Road in the VIDEO department(remember videocassettes and VCRs?).

Some people that worked alongside me back then, still work there now and remain good friends of mine to this day. I've even met some other great people just from shopping there who are now good friends of mine.

And that is the type of great work environment that Stop & Shop does its very best to cultivate and grow. If you're looking for a job or are unhappy with your current one check out the job fair. You've got nothing to lose.

Stop & Shop is looking to fill positions in all departments including bakery, deli, grocery, seafood, produce, and eCommerce. They are also looking for cashiers, baggers, home shoppers, pharmacy assistants, and overnight crews. Full and part-time positions are available.

Julie Pinard, Director of Human Resources for Stop & Shop, says in the media statement:

At Stop & Shop, we pride ourselves on being an inclusive workplace. We believe that the voices of our associates should reflect a diverse set of ideas, experiences, and backgrounds... The roles we offer at Stop & Shop are more than jobs, they are growth opportunities.

Stacker used data from the 2020 County Health Rankings to rank every state's average life expectancy from lowest to highest. The 2020 County Health Rankings values were calculated using mortality counts from the 2016-2018 National Center for Health Statistics. The U.S. Census 2019 American Community Survey and America's Health Rankings Senior Report 2019 data were also used to provide demographics on the senior population of each state and the state's rank on senior health care, respectively.

LOOK: Here are the 50 best beach towns in America

Every beach town has its share of pluses and minuses, which got us thinking about what makes a beach town the best one to live in. To find out, Stacker consulted data from WalletHub, released June 17, 2020, that compares U.S. beach towns. Ratings are based on six categories: affordability, weather, safety, economy, education and health, and quality of life. The cities ranged in population from 10,000 to 150,000, but they had to have at least one local beach listed on TripAdvisor. Read the full methodology here. From those rankings, we selected the top 50. Readers who live in California and Florida will be unsurprised to learn that many of towns featured here are in one of those two states.

Keep reading to see if your favorite beach town made the cut.
