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.
Hoboken ShopRite on the ropes after Hurricane Sandy
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.
