Cingari Family Markets To Unveil New Identity, 2 Remodeled Stores

Cingari Family Market - Butcher View Revised

Cingari Family ShopRite, which owns and operates 12 ShopRite locations in Connecticut, is introducing a new “Cingari Family Markets” identity and a range of new, branded products.

Additionally, Cingari Family Markets will open two remodeled stores on June 17-18 – the ShopRite of Commerce Street and Grade A Market on Newfield Avenue in Stamford, Connecticut.

The ShopRite of Commerce Street, located at 1990 W Main St., will reopen on June 17 at a ribbon cutting ceremony at 9 a.m. with Stamford Mayor Caroline Simmons and members of the chamber of commerce. The community celebration will include family activities, a balloon artist, cupcake decorating and food samplings.

The supermarket has an upgraded, sleek exterior facade, modern interior décor and transformed produce, meat, seafood and bakery departments. The store also will feature “The Grill,” a new dine-in and take-out experience, a dedicated cheese monger, full-service butcher, expanded take-and-bake seafood options and a beer and craft brew center.

“We are thrilled to open the doors to a brand new shopping destination,” said Tom Cingari Sr., president and CEO of Cingari Family Markets. “The renovations have allowed us to create an unmatched experience with incredible service, quality and convenience for our customers.” 

The Cingari family also will celebrate the opening of its renovated Grade A Market store at 9 a.m. on June 18 at 563 Newfield Ave. in Stamford. A Boars Head food truck will be on-site on grand reopening day to serve hot dogs and other samples to customers.

The store refresh brings updated décor and enhancements to the produce, seafood, floral and meat departments, as well as sustainable refrigerators and freezers throughout the store.

“The Newfield Avenue store has been an area staple for decades,” Cingari said. “These upgrades will allow us to continue providing the outstanding service and convenience customers expect, now within a completely modernized shopping environment.” 

In addition to the remodeled stores, the grocer has also launched a range of gourmet prepared foods and products marketed under the Cingari Family Markets brand, including:

  • Ready-to-eat, restaurant-quality prepared meals;
  • Fresh-cut, pre-packaged produce;
  • Read to cook, marinated and seasoned premium meats;
  • Italian-imported organic extra virgin olive oil;
  • Italian-imported organic balsamic vinegar;
  • Jarred marinara sauce;
  • Jarred vodka sauce;
  • Organic coffees; and
  • Locally-brewed beers.

The chef-created line reflects the Cingari family’s Italian heritage and its decades-long commitment to quality and excellence. It also features a newly designed Cingari Family Markets’ logo inspired by the family business’ origin.

“The Cingari Family Markets products pay homage to our family’s history, and the new logos are inspired by the original design, materials and colors my grandfather used for the very first store, while embracing a modern aesthetic,” Cingari said.

“Everything we do is built on the expertise and heritage of our family, now spanning four generations. As new Cingari generations come in, we modernize our approach to meet the needs of our customers while staying true to our core values.”

Family-owned and operated for more than 90 years, Cingari Family Markets owns 10 ShopRite stores and two Grade A Market supermarkets across southwestern Connecticut.
