ShopRite’s Can Can sale kicks off Sunday, Jan. 10; turns 45 years

Legendary sale, which starts Sunday, January 10th, marks 45 years

Keasbey, NJ, 2016-1-8 — /EPR Retail News/ — Start the New Year with a well-stocked kitchen and some help from ShopRite, which makes it easy for customers to buy their favorite foods at discounted prices during the month of January.

ShopRite’s Can Can sale kicks off Sunday, Jan. 10, marking an annual winter tradition and sale extravaganza across all ShopRite stores. But the Can’t Can’t Wait Presale on canned goods is underway now in all stores.

Originally intended to focus on ShopRite Private Label products and canned products, the Can Can sale has evolved over the last 45 years to include many national brands across every category. Shoppers can find pasta, sauce, cereal, coffee, paper products and lots of other items at heavily discounted prices.

Poland Spring water, ShopRite canned vegetables and Tuttorosso Tomatoes are just some of the popular items sold during the three-week stock-up sale event.

Can Can also arrives with the familiar ShopRite Can Can jingle and our iconic ShopRite Can Can dancers.  The catchy tune – inspired early on by an ad executive’s trip to Paris — endures more than four decades later.

ShopRite considered canceling the sale just once, in 1974, due to an industrywide shortage of canned goods, but stores decided the sale was too important to customers to halt. And our devoted ShopRite Can Can fans keep the sale going strong today.

ShopRite estimates that more than three billion canned items have been sold since the sale’s inception in 1971. For more information, please visit or visit ShopRite’s Facebook page. The sale runs for three weeks – so don’t miss out!
