Riverhead, NY (October 21, 2018)
– ShopRite today cut the ribbon on a state-of-the-art, full-service supermarket in Riverhead, NY.
Located at 1510 Old Country Road in the Riverhead Centre Plaza, the 60,000-square-foot supermarket is owned by K Thompson Foods, LLC, a family-run company operated by Ken Thompson and his son, Ken Thompson Jr. The family also owns the ShopRite of Deer Park and ShopRite of Uniondale.
To celebrate the store opening, the family joined ShopRite Partners In Caring, ShopRite’s community-based, hunger-fighting initiative, in making a $10,000 donation to Long Island Cares food bank.
The new ShopRite supermarket employs more than 200 associates and features a cafe, pizzeria, and international foods aisle. Favorite ShopRite departments include a from-scratch bake shop with special occasion cakes, pastries and freshly made bread; a meat department where trained butchers custom cut meat for customers;
a full-service seafood department with daily, fresh-catch deliveries; a full-service deli with Boar’s Head products and a prepared foods department with grab-and-go items, freshly prepared hot entrees, salad and olive bars, and made-to-order sandwiches. The new ShopRite in Riverhead will also offer a large selection of local and gluten-free foods and locally grown produce at ShopRite’s low, everyday prices.
The new store is outfitted with the latest energy-saving and sustainable technologies, including LED lighting and environmentally friendly refrigerant systems, and ShopRite From Home is available for customers who want to order their groceries online and pick them up at the store or have them delivered to their home.
“We are very excited to bring ShopRite to eastern Long Island with our ShopRite of Riverhead, which joins other ShopRite stores in providing the best prices and top-notch service to Long Islanders,” said Ken Thompson Sr., a resident of nearby Eastport. “We look forward to being a part of this great community.”
The ShopRite of Riverhead is open daily from 6 a.m. to 11 p.m.
