Stew Sr. delivering milk
door-to-door in the 1940's
Stew Leonard’s began as a small dairy store founded in southern Connecticut in 1969 and has grown to become not only the World's Largest Dairy Store, but one of the world’s most renowned grocery stores, as well. Written up and showcased by everything from the Guinness Book of World Records and Ripley’s Believe It or Not! to The New York Times, People magazine, and the Food Network, Stew Leonard’s is now a world famous destination spot for those visiting the New York/Connecticut area.

Opening day in 1969
in Norwalk, CT
The History
Stew Leonard, the store’s founder, was the son of a milkman. Working as a milkman himself in his father’s dairy plant, Stew dreamed of building a retail dairy store like no other … one where children could watch milk being bottled before their eyes while their mothers did their shopping in a fresh, farmer's market atmosphere.
So in December 1969, with determination, a dream, and a motto that “the customer is always right”, Stew Leonard's opened its doors in a small barn-like store carrying just eight items. Over the years, Stew Leonard's has grown at an amazing pace by taking its unique and successful “fresh” dairy concept and expanding into meats, fish, produce, bakery, cheese and much, much more..

Customers love the quality
of our FRESH produce
So now when customers walk in to any of our stores located in the Northeast, they see one word more than any other. They see it on the side of our building. They see it on our cartons of milk. In fact, they see it in just about every section of our store. That one word is FRESH. And that’s because we strive to make everything we offer at Stew Leonard’s as fresh as possible. While Stew Leonard’s has grown tremendously over the years, we have always stayed true to that “fresh” concept.

All our gift are hand-crafted
and carefully packed for shipping
