ShopRite of Huntington Commons Opens Doors with Ribbon Cutting Ceremony
Located in the Huntington Commons shopping center at 839 New York Ave., the full-service ShopRite store is owned and operated by the Greenfield family, third- and fourth- generation grocers who own five other ShopRites on Long Island. The family’s newest store offers a kosher bakery, prepared foods department with restaurant-quality meals, and a large selection of fresh produce, organic, gluten-free and local products at ShopRite’s everyday low prices.
“We are proud to open our latest ShopRite store in Huntington and excited to bring ShopRite value and quality foods and products to the community,” said Seth Greenfield, co-president of Greenfield’s ShopRite who operates the family’s ShopRite stores with his father, Jon. “Long Island is home to our longtime family business and we are grateful for the continued support from the community.”
Visitors to the store will find fresh bake and floral shops; a seafood department stocked with daily deliveries; meat department staffed with trained butchers, a fresh produce department, prepared meals and sushi station. The new ShopRite also includes a kosher bakery under the supervision of KOF-K Kosher Certification and an in-store Nuts Factory featuring a variety of specialty nuts and unique sweet treats.
With an emphasis on reducing its eco-footprint, the store incorporates energy efficient refrigeration and LED lighting throughout. Customers will also find self-checkout lanes, wider aisles and freshly prepared meals, soups and sandwiches. The store is open daily from 6 a.m. to 10 p.m.
Those interested in applying for positions at the new store can visit the career opportunities section of ShopRite.com or visit the new store location. The store will employ approximately 250 full- and part-time associates.
