March 01, 2010

58,000 Square Foot Store to Bring Convenience and Value to Local Community

Warminster, PA (March 1, 2010) – ShopRite announced today that its Warminster location is scheduled to open in April 2010. The 58,000 square foot store at 942 West Street Road has undergone an eight-week renovation and will open to the public in the coming weeks. The new store will employ nearly 200 full- and part-time associates.

As part of the store’s redesign, ShopRite of Warminster will have a new contemporary look and feel with bright, wide aisles and a customer-friendly floor plan that makes everything easy to find. The store features energy efficient lighting, as well as new registers and scanners for faster and easier checkout. The store will feature ShopRite From Home, an online shopping service, which offers customers the convenience of placing their grocery order online, stopping by the store and having their items delivered right to their car!

In addition to a broad array of groceries, a healthy array of fruits and vegetables, fresh seafood, custom cut meats, a full-service deli and a fresh bakery, the store has added a wide selection of natural and organic produce; a full-service floral department to create everyday and special occasion arrangements; full-service catering that can provide everything from party platters to special meals and a gourmet coffee bar/café. The store also features an expanded pharmacy department.

As a unique service to its customers, the store will feature Scrunchy’s Playhouse, a free, short-term, drop-off childcare service for customers who are shopping in the store with small children.

The new store will be operated by Joseph Cowhey and his wife Deborah who moved back to Pennsylvania with their three daughters. Joe is a native of Huntingdon Valley, and this store brings him back to his roots in the community. “I am excited to be bringing my family back to my hometown,” said Mr. Cowhey. “We are looking forward to living and working here and serving the great people of Warminster. We plan to be hands-on and in the store everyday, bringing value and quality to our friends and neighbors.”

Mr. Cowhey’s broad background in the supermarket industry will be a tremendous asset in running the Warminster ShopRite. For the last 15 years an executive at four ShopRite stores in Delaware, he was involved in all aspects of the business, including sales, marketing, vendor relations, government relations and community outreach.

As with all ShopRite stores, the ShopRite of Warminster is fully committed to the local community and plans to support numerous local organizations such as area schools, sports and music programs as well as community food banks through the ShopRite Partners in Caring Program.
