Plainview, NY, 2017-Jul-31 — /EPR Retail News/ — Local leaders and ShopRite today (July 27, 2017) cut the ribbon on a state-of-the-art supermarket, the ShopRite of Country Pointe. The 68,000-square-foot supermarket also serves as a retail anchor for Country Pointe Plainview, a development that will include a mix of housing and retail shops when complete.
Located at 1675 Old Country Road in Plainview, the full-service ShopRite store is owned and operated by the Greenfield family, third- and fourth- generation grocers who own four other ShopRites on Long Island. The family’s newest store offers a prepared foods department with restaurant-quality meals and a café along with a large selection of fresh produce, organic, gluten-free, local and Kosher products at ShopRite’s everyday low prices.
“We are thrilled to open another ShopRite store on Long Island, this time as the supermarket anchor at the innovative development Country Pointe Plainview. We are a family business and we are excited to be part of this great new development and the larger family at Country Pointe,” said Seth Greenfield, who often works alongside his dad, Jon, in the family’s ShopRite stores.
Visitors to the store will find fresh bake and floral shops; a seafood department stocked with daily deliveries and a meat department staffed with trained butchers. Customers can also take advantage of the full-service pharmacy and an in-store dietitian who will be available to offer free, one-on-one consultations, store tours or meal planning to customers. The new ShopRite will also include a kosher bakery and separate kosher meat, deli and prepared food departments under the supervision of KOF- K Kosher Certification.
“ShopRite has been a pillar of the Plainview community for 45 years. We are delighted a new, state-of-the-art ShopRite will be our supermarket anchor at The Shops at Country Pointe Plainview for years and generations to come,” said Michael Dubb, founder and CEO of The Beechwood Organization, developer of the residential lifestyle community Country Pointe Plainview.
Joseph Saladino, supervisor for the Town of Oyster Bay; Arnold Drucker, District 16 Legislator in Nassau County, and Oyster Bay Councilman Louis Imbroto also attended Thursday’s ribbon cutting and recognized the Greenfield family and ShopRite for their longtime commitment to the community.
With an emphasis on reducing its eco-footprint, the new store incorporates energy efficient refrigeration and LED lighting throughout. Customers will also find self-checkout lanes, wider aisles and freshly prepared meals including sushi, salad and olive bars, made-to-order sandwiches, international cheeses, and a café with seating and free Wi-Fi access.
The convenient online ShopRite from Home® service will also be available to customers. ShopRite associates personally shop those online grocery orders and customers can pick up their groceries at the store.
The new store replaces the former location at 1054 Old Country Road, and the new store is open daily from 7 a.m. to midnight.
