Other highlights of the “Fresh to Table” shopping experience include the “Tasty & Trending” section featuring on-trend, seasonal foods with items that change frequently. Tasty and Trending meals and snacks are selected by ShopRite chefs and registered dietitians with the goal of inspiring customers to explore unique meal options that are procured from departments across the store including Meat, Seafood, Produce, Bakery and more. Distinctive signage and designated registers for easy checkout also provide an easy and intuitive experience for customers shopping Fresh to Table in-store.
In addition, the store will offer a large assortment of groceries and fresh produce along with all the hallmark store features and services ShopRite customers have come to expect. The new store will include a meat department with trained butchers; from-scratch fresh bake shop offering store made bread, cakes and pastries; seafood department with fresh deliveries daily; produce department with large selection of organic and locally grown fruits and vegetables, and a floral department.
