Hazlet, NJ (June 11, 2013) – ShopRite announced today that its newest store will open in Hazlet, New Jersey on Wednesday, June 19, 2013 at 7 am. A ribbon cutting ceremony is scheduled for Monday, June 17th at 11 AM. Local politicians, dignitaries and community leaders are scheduled to attend.

Located in the Bayshore Shopping Center, 3150 Route 35, the new 85,000 square foot ShopRite of Hazlet will be operated by Saker ShopRites, Inc., a family-owned business comprised of third and fourth generation grocers. To commemorate the opening of this new, state-of-the-art location, the Saker family will present a special donation to the Food Bank for Monmouth and Ocean at Monday’s ribbon cutting. Saker ShopRites, Inc. also owns and operates 28 additional ShopRites in New Jersey.

In addition to a broad array of groceries and fresh produce, this store will have several services that ShopRite customers have come to expect including: a fresh bake shop, fresh meat cut to order, a floral department and fresh seafood delivered daily, as well as a broad selection of natural and organic products in every department. All “World Class” Saker ShopRites also offer customers a hot buffet bar, as well as a wide variety of freshly prepared entrées and gourmet delicacies, including fresh-baked pizza, fresh-made sushi, a cold buffet bar, a Mediterranean olive bar and cheeses from around the world.

The ShopRite of Hazlet will have a pharmacy, an in-store café, a specialty Cigar Shoppe, and a full-service catering department to complement any occasion, from an intimate dinner for two to a full-scale gala event.

In addition to the free services of an in-store registered dietitian to assist customers in choosing healthy foods for their families, the store’s reopening will also introduce ShopRite From Home® to the Hazlet community. ShopRite from Home allows customers to place online orders from their home computer or mobile device and have store associates shop for them, so they can come by at their convenience and pick up their packaged groceries.

The ShopRite of Hazlet was built with the latest energy-saving and sustainable technologies in refrigeration and lighting, including glass doors on the dairy and freezer cases, LED and T-8 lighting and environmentally-friendly refrigerant systems.

“We are very excited to open the doors of this bigger, better and fresher location on Highway 35 and look forward to continuing our long standing relationship with our Hazlet neighbors,” said Richard Saker, president of Saker ShopRites, Inc. “The new ShopRite of Hazlet will represent the traditional low prices and outstanding services that ShopRite has always been famous for, in a brand new 85,000 square foot ‘World Class’ Store.”

Another new feature at the new ShopRite of Hazlet is the ShopRite Culinary Workshop. These weekly, hands-on cooking classes are taught by area professional chefs. For a minimal fee, guests attend a 2-hour class and fully participate in the preparation of an entire meal. A full schedule of classes and menus can be found at
