Stewart’s Shops, something better for LaGrange


Lagrange proposed shop.

Stewart’s Shops, a family and employee owned company, is under contract to purchase property at the corner of Routes 55 and 82 in LaGrange.

This as an opportunity to bring fresh milk, fresh eggs, soup, sandwiches and our award-winning ice cream to your community. Stewart’s is seeking permission to build a new shop to bring quality products and services to an under-served area while redeveloping a vacant property that served as a day care center many years ago.

This page was developed to give the community a place where they can learn about Stewart’s plan for this property.

What is Stewart’s Shops?

Stewart’s Shops operates 358 shops across New York and Vermont. We are known for our fresh milk, which was voted best in New York at the state fair. Stewart’s chocolate ice cream also was named best in the state.

The company and the Dake family also invest more than $9 million a year back into local communities through our corporate charitable events and donations. An expansion into LaGrange would open up opportunities for organizations in your community to benefit from our charitable giving.

More information about the proposed shop:

Stewart’s proposes rezoning approximately 1.5 acres at the intersection of Routes 82 and 55 from a general business zone to commercial to accommodate gas. The proposed rezoning is compatible with surrounding uses including a strip mall, Mid-Hudson Bank, an existing gas station and multiple self-storage facilities.

Did you know?

  • Our milk makes it from the farm into the shop cooler in 48 hours.
  • We pick up eggs at Thomas Poultry in Saratoga County seven days a week.
  • Most of our hot and cold food-to-go products are made by Stewart’s partners at our commercial kitchen or in the shop.
  • Our shops receive deliveries from our plant every two to three days.
  • We bring good jobs to the communities we are a part of. Stewart’s employees own over 40% of the company through Employee Stock Ownership Plan (ESOP), known as “Profit Sharing.” That’s why our employees are called “Partners.” Unlike a 401K, the plan is 100% company paid. As of 2023, there have been over 175 partners with a balance of over $1 million and 70% of the current employee millionaires started out as hourly employees.
