Stop & Shop Picket Line Leads To Marriage Proposal

April 18, 2019

The produce manager at the Stop & Shop supermarket in Hyannis asked his girlfriend to marry him while both were standing in a picket line while on strike.

Matt Chamsarian, of Marstons Mills, popped the question Wednesday afternoon to Ellen Kerrigan, of Dennisport – surprising her.

She said yes.

Fellow strikers cheered and applauded.

The two met while working at the Stop & Shop which they are now picketing.

Workers and management at Stop & Shop are at odds over pay and benefits.

The marriage proposal on Wednesday, April 17 was caught on video, which has been published by The Cape Cod Times.
