Lawnside Shop-Rite grand opening set for 8 a.m. Sunday; events scheduled, jobs available

More than a year after Pathmark’s closure in the White Horse Pike plaza left Barrington without a nearby grocery store, Shop-Rite will open Sunday morning in the same location Pathmark abandoned to serve the region.

Also this month, the store will conduct events to help customers better understand how canned goods can be part of healthy meals, learn about healthy beverages and get tips on summer skin safety.

The first week’s produce pick of the week will be blueberries. Customers will have an opportunity to sample blueberry smoothies. The second week’s produce pick will be peppers, and shoppers will be able to try quinoa-stuffer peppers.

An earlier release from Shop-Rite noted the store would offer:

  • a fresh bake shop
  • fresh meat cut to order
  • fresh seafood delivered daily
  • a variety of freshly prepared hot foods and delicacies, including a Mediterranean olive bar
  • in-store café with free WiFi
  • a catering department
  • an on-site registered dietitian to assist customers in choosing healthy foods for their family
  • a variety of natural and organic foods
  • energy-saving and sustainable technologies in refrigeration and lighting
  • the “ShopRite from Home” service, which allows customers to order food online and have it delivered or ready for pickup

Less than a week before opening, Shop-Rite of Lawnside is hiring for dozens of positions.
