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


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?

Bring Back the Salad Bar!

As it is, the A&P in Jersey City next to Best Buy is still better than our Shop Rite.

I can’t tell you how happy I am that Shoprite is open again. They did a good job with the renovations and they’ve had so many lanes open each time I’ve been in there. I didn’t realize how much I appreciated that store until it was gone for 3 months.

I also can’t tell you how happy I am that I’ll never (please please please) have to set foot in A&P Hoboken again. It’s worth the walk to the JC location. 😉

I heard from an employee who works in the liquor store that his section may not open on 2/9; it may open a little bit after the store re-opens.

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

Would love your thoughts, please comment.x
