Many Stop&Shops will cook lobster for you.

Many supermarkets do that for you, including S&S and Shaw's.

Market Basket very often has $5/lb lobster, but I don't know if they cook it for you.

Shaws does it and depending on which one you are at, has pretty good lobster roll.

You may also want to check DeMoulas Market Basket in North Andover, about 5 minutes farther north than the Stop and Shop.

This is no problem for the grocery stores however they like to have several hours advance notice. Why don't you also ask them to cut the back of the tail shell? It is easy for them to do it and will be helpful to you. Enjoy

Are you staying in Andover? If yes..give Hometown Seafoods a call. Always have good luck with them.
