The new 93,000-square-foot store for which ShopRite will hold a grand opening May 8 at 6781 Hadley Road in South Plainfield, New Jersey, is replacing a nearby one at 1306 Centennial Ave., which will be shuttered May 7.

Community leaders will join the Saker family, which owns and operates the store in Hadley Commons, and their retail teams for the 7 a.m. ribbon cutting. 

At 10:30 a.m., the family will present the Community FoodBank of New Jersey with a donation and food trucks and vendors such as Tru Fru Food, Deep Foods and Mrs. T’s Pierogies will begin offering free samples.

“Opening a new store is always a big moment for us because it represents our commitment to provide fresh, quality products and exceptional service in a state-of-the-art store,” said Rick Saker, SVP of Saker ShopRites.

“We’re excited to welcome our customers to this new location and are kicking it off with a great celebration that will include special store happenings throughout the month of May.”

The store also will feature an expanded line of international foods and dishes, including Southeast Asian specialties and Kosher and Halal products. 

In addition, the store will have a Saker ShopRites World Class bakery with special occasion cakes and freshly made bread, large meat counter with trained butchers, seafood department with daily, fresh catch deliveries, a floral shop, a full-service deli and prepared foods.
