Shoprite: Worst management ever?

Would you wait an hour for sliced cold cuts at Shoprite in Hoboken?

Hoboken411 reader Marc was astonished at the exorbitant wait time for simple sliced meats and cheeses over at the Shoprite Supermarket this past weekend. He says this is a regular occurrence, and was completely dissed by the manager on scene.

Should Shoprite be renamed “ShopWait?”

“ShopRite Supermarket at the back of Hoboken has 1Hr, 04 Minute wait at deli counter (on Sunday at 4pm)!

The woman in front of me says this is a near daily experience, especially the weekends. I asked for the manager, Dan Ramirez. I pointed out that there are 6-7 slicers yet only 2 people slicing. He said that’s all he could spare and started walking away from me. I said he looked free, no response. I then said, that perhaps he could address this problem as it is ongoing and extreme, again, shockingly he had nothing to say in response, not even an apology. Absolutely unacceptable.”

Do you also see at problem at the Shoprite deli counter? Are their prices that much lower than everywhere else in town that you’re willing to wait that long?

I’ve been going to A & P alot more even though I live just a block from Shoprite. The Shoprite employees’s (most, not all) are so annoyed to just be therre and can’t be bothered with speaking to you much less actually bagging. The Meat Department has very little organic and although I’ve inquired numerous times they’re obvously not going to get any in. And don’t get me started on the clerk in the liquor dept who gets annoyed with you if you pay w/ a credit card! Really!? Buy Rite in Jersey City will take my money in whatever form I have.

Corrado’s is a great place too. A super market, garden center and large pet store bigger than a city block w fresh specialty items you’d have to travel the world to find.

If you want excellent produce (cheap!) try the Route 17 Produce Market, just off Route 3 by Staples. Its insanely cheap (oranges 5 for $1 as opposed to 4 for $5 at A+P), the selection is great and they have mounds of just about every fruit + vegetable you can imagine.

When you get in there, the lines are loooong but I’ve never waiting more than 5 minutes. The cashiers are lightening fast.

Maybe they were shortstaffed that one day.

Who knows. What I know is that I generally stay the hell away from supermarkets on Saturdays and Sundays, period. I do my shopping late on weeknights, an hour or two before the markets close. Beats waiting on lines for sure.

I have never had to wait an hr. in ShopRite ever for anything, in fact even on the weekends. Guess more people are shopping there now, but I usually go there at about 7:30 PM and get prompt service. The only time I’ve really had some type of wait is right before a holiday. Wonder what’s up now? Maybe they need to hire more help? 😛
