ShopRite Coming to Lawnside, N.J.
A groundbreaking ceremony will take place Tuesday, April 16 at 10 a.m. for ShopRite's new 56,000-square-foot store slated to open this summer in Lawnside, N.J. Among the invited guests are Lawnside Mayor Mary Ann Wardlow, local politicians and community leaders.
Operated by Somerset Stores LLC and owned by David and Renee Zallie, the ShopRite of Lawnside will be located at 130 White Horse Pike in the Lawnside Shopping Center. The store will bring more than 200 jobs to the community.
The store’s features include a fresh bake shop, fresh meat cut to order and fresh seafood delivered daily, in addition to a wide variety of freshly prepared hot foods and gourmet delicacies, a Mediterranean olive bar, and a broad selection of natural and organic products in every department. Additionally, the meat department will offer its own brand of smoked meats made in the store’s own smokehouse.
Among the store’s planned amenities are a pharmacy; an in-store café with free WiFi; a catering department staffed to take special orders; an on-site registered dietitian to assist customers in choosing healthy foods; and the “ShopRite from Home” service allowing customers to shop via computer or mobile device, and then have the order delivered directly to their homes or made ready for pickup at the store.
The new location will operate with the latest energy-saving and sustainable technologies in refrigeration and lighting, including glass doors on the dairy and freezer cases, LED and T-8 lighting, and eco-friendly refrigerant systems.
