ShopRite to reopen on Feb. 9th

Hoboken ShopRite will reopen to public on February 9th

Relief is on the way for weary supermarket shoppers! The Hoboken ShopRite is planning on reopening on February 9th, 2013.

In addition to a fully remodeled store, they’ll also feature an expanded alcohol section, eat-in dining area as well as section for the latest trend of “gluten-free” products. They’ve also added some flood-mitigation measures to help limit devastation from future storms (which they probably should have done the first time).

Expect your typical political photo-op ribbon-cutting, but be cheerful business will be back to normal again after Hurricane Sandy.

ShopRite in Hoboken NJ to reopen after Hurricane Sandy

Hoboken ShopRite on the ropes after Hurricane Sandy


Buzz on the street about the Hoboken ShopRite after Hurricane Sandy – has ranged from “six months to repair” all the way to “condemned, must re-build.”

If I were the property owner here – I’d rebuild. Build a ground-floor parking deck underneath (sort of like the Home Depot in Jersey City), with escalators, stairs and elevators. Much easier to replace a few people-movers than it is an entire store.

Make sense?

Six months sounds like a long time, even for a gut rehab. Even the best insurance coverage is geared towards getting you re-opened fast. Unless the damage was so complete that all the electrical and plumbing needs to be stripped out I can’t see it taking that long. Only leveling the structure would do that.
The half dozen plus dumpsters that are rotating in and out are being filled with what sounds to be bottles and cans now, along with shelving and displays. Workers in white “bunny” suits are using shopping carts to move everything out.
A side note – in the meantime, the parking lot at Shoprite is being used as a staging ground for all the ruined cars. Tow trucks have been delivering cars to the lot in a steady stream, where they are then loaded onto flatbeds three and four at a time.

You need a poll. What reopens first… Hoboken PATH or Hoboken Shop Rite?
