Located in the Golden Acres Shopping Center, 3600 Park Ave., South Plainfield, the 80,000-square-foot ShopRite of South Plainfield will be operated by Saker ShopRites, Inc., a family-owned business made up of third and fourth generation grocers.
The location underwent an extensive renovation and includes favorite ShopRite features such as a from-scratch bake shop with special occasion cakes and freshly made bread; meat department with trained butchers; full service seafood department with daily, fresh catch deliveries; a floral shop and full service deli department with gourmet and grab-and-go items.
