Under apparent pressure from City Hall, Trinity Financial is once again talking about putting a new Stop & Shop in the Bulfinch Triangle area, near the North End, the BBJ is reporting in its print edition (subscription required for online stories).
Trinity had recently announced that Stop & Shop no longer wanted to open a new supermarket at One Canal Street, despite previous plans and calls to do so.
