Renovated supermarket features chef-prepared meals, wider selection of organic and gluten-free products and added conveniences for ShopRite from Home customers
The store will host a grand re-opening on Saturday, Oct. 7, at 10 a.m.
ShopRite is also committed to giving back to the communities its stores serve and will make a donation to The Amity Foundation for Healing with Horses, a nonprofit that specializes in the healing and therapeutic power of horses to help those who suffer from the psychological, emotional and relational effects of trauma, including veterans suffering from post-traumatic stress disorder.
Visitors to the store will find a better-designed supermarket for easier navigation, a larger selection of organic and gluten-free products across all store aisles and added space for ShopRite from Home customers, with the department more than doubling in size.
As part of the renovation, the store also received energy-saving and sustainable technologies in refrigeration and lighting, including glass doors on the dairy and freezer cases, LED lighting throughout the store and its parking lot and an improved refrigeration system to maximize energy efficiency.
“We love being a part of the Warwick community, and are constantly looking for ways to improve the shopping experience for our customers,” said Brett Wing, president, ShopRite Supermarkets, Inc., owner and operator of 34 stores throughout New York and New Jersey. “We believe the new renovations combined with expanded product and services areas will better meet the needs of our customers, and appreciate the patience of our shoppers and associates as we underwent these changes.”
