The new ShopRite supermarket in Albany is set to open Thursday, April 26. There was a soft opening event last night, which was invitation only, and Albany.com’s Rick Marchant was on the scene to give us a sneak peek at what we can expect.
“Walking in to Shop Rite’s soft opening Tuesday evening, attendees were greeted initially by most every senior member of their staff,” said Marchant. “We were given samples of Boar’s Head meats, NYS locally made cheeses, seafood selections, a carving station and too many good sweets to choose from.”
The new store also features row after shiny-floored new row of fresh produce, giant freezer cases, a gluten free section and a great selection of beer.
ShopRite also goes over and above to meet their consumers’ needs… and I mean over and above…
“There is an actual nutritionist on site for any shoppers with diabetes, food allergies or specific fitness goals to have one-on-one consultations,” said Marchant.
Can you imagine having someone on hand who is personally willing to assist you with your specific nutritional needs and goals? Now that is dedication!
Did you know you can also ShopRite from home? Similar to their Niskayuna store, ShopRite Albany will allow shoppers to order online and then pick-up their groceries at the pick-up area for free, or pay to have them delivered right to their home.
The grand opening to the public and ribbon cutting (when you can actually shop) at the ShopRite Albany store will be this Thursday, April 26th with Mayor Jennings. The store is located at 711 Central Avenue in Albany, NY.
