– Mannix Family Supermarkets, the family-owned and operated Staten Island-based company, celebrated the grand re-opening of the ShopRite of Forest & Richmond located at 985 Richmond Ave., Staten Island, NY. A ribbon cutting ceremony and celebration on June 11 marked the completion of a major store renovation and featured special store samplings, performances by jugglers and even a local high school marching band.
The fully renovated supermarket offers customers several new services and expanded product selections, including a full-service deli and sushi station and additional bulk and club pack offerings. The store also has a brand-new look and feel with updated produce and prepared foods departments, refreshed grocery aisles with upgraded shelves and endcaps, newly polished concrete floors, renovated high ceilings and environmentally friendly LED lighting that create a more open and modern shopping environment. The store also has expanded traditional and self-checkout lanes, providing a more seamless checkout process.
“We are excited about the changes at the ShopRite of Forest & Richmond, and we thank our customers and associates for their patience during the renovation process,” said Kevin Mannix, owner and operator of the ShopRite of Forest & Richmond. “The extensive renovation has transformed our store, making it a more beautiful, convenient and pleasant destination to shop. We think the new and expanded departments will enhance our customers’ shopping experience and the value equation.”
The ShopRite of Forest & Richmond also features Fresh to Table,
an innovative store-within-a-store where customers can find fresh, on-trend foods, easy to prepare ingredients and meal solutions in a variety of grab-and-go formats.
Fresh to Table reinvents traditional produce and fresh food departments, providing additional high-quality options for shoppers looking for a one-stop shop experience. Customers can choose from ready-to-cook items (“Prep & Eat”), ready-to-heat and serve items (“Heat & Eat”) and ready-to-eat meals (“Grab & Eat”). The multi-purpose space features ShopRite’s new and innovative Own Brand products, including its award-winning Bowl & Basket and Wholesome Pantry lines.
