The new store will include 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 prepared foods.
