SARATOGA SPRINGS — About 4,900 part-time and full-time Stewart's Shops employees got a hefty "thank you" this week — bonuses that in some cases are equal to a week's worth of pay.

The employees, or "partners," received the week-sized checks, while those who started after September 2021 got a $100 check, the company said Friday.

The bonuses show gratitude for their commitment during the pandemic, Stewart's said in a statement. The bonuses total $2.8 million.

“Our committed partners and vertical integration allowed us to keep our shops open and provide essential food and fuel,” said Gary Dake, the president of the company in a press release. “We can’t thank our partners and customers enough for their patience, cooperation and following of strict Covid protocols throughout the pandemic. This bonus is our way of sharing our success and saying thank you to all of our partners.”
