Earlier this month ShopRite opened a 60,000 square foot store in South Philadelphia's Whitman Plaza, replacing an older ShopRite about a mile away. The new store is in a former Pathmark location that Wakefern acquired during A&P's bankruptcy auction last year.
The renovated supermarket includes the standard grocery departments plus an in-store cafe, on-site dietition, and meal planning services for customers. It also offers ShopRite from Home internet shopping with home delivery and store pick-up options.
In August, ShopRite opened in Brookhaven, PA, also in a former Pathmark location. At 63,000 square feet, the store is open 24 hours a day and offers a beer garden as well as grocery delivery services. A Giant supermarket is under construction across the street.
