ShopRite of Brookhaven Hosts Ribbon Cutting
Brookhaven, PA – ShopRite today opened its newest full-service supermarket with a ribbon cutting ceremony.
Located at 5005 Edgmont Ave., the 62,000-square-foot ShopRite of Brookhaven will be operated by the Burns family, which has more than 30 years experience in the supermarket business in the Greater Philadelphia area.
The family’s newest ShopRite store offers a large selection of fresh produce and natural and organic products along with thousands of sale items each week. The Edgmont Avenue location underwent an extensive renovation to meet ShopRite standards and customers can expect a state-of-the-art supermarket with over 40 varieties of home style prepared hot entrees made fresh daily, sushi and Chinese cuisine, a garden fresh salad bar, brick oven pizza, fire grilled chicken, and made-to-order hoagies and sandwiches.
Customers will also find an in-store bakery featuring special occasion cakes, freshly made rolls, breads, and pastries; meat department offering a service case with trained butchers available for custom cuts and special orders; a wide variety of fruits, vegetables and local produce; a floral shop; full service deli department with gourmet and grab-and-go items, and a beer garden with domestic and imported beers. The seafood department offers fresh Grade A fish delivered daily to the store along with steam and clean service for lobster and shrimp purchases.
Customers will also be able to use ShopRite From Home to place orders online and pick them up at the store or have them delivered to their doorstep via shoprite.com. The new store is also outfitted with the latest energy-saving and sustainable technologies in refrigeration and lighting, including LED lighting and environmentally friendly refrigerant systems.
To mark the grand opening, the Burns family celebrated with a ribbon cutting ceremony and a special donation to the Philabundance food bank to help fight hunger in the community.
