ShopRite of Sussex set to open next week with ribbon-cutting celebration


The ShopRite of Sussex, owned by RoNetco Supermarkets Inc., a family-owned company with nearly a century in the grocery business and eight ShopRite stores in northwestern New Jersey, will hold a grand opening celebration for the new state-of-the-art, full-service supermarket, scheduled for next week.

The new ShopRite will offer customers a one-stop shopping experience with a wide selection of groceries, including ShopRite’s award-winning Bowl & Basket, Wholesome Pantry and Paperbird Own Brands, locally sourced foods and a variety of fresh-prepared and restaurant-style meals. The store will employ over 250 full- and part-time associates.

On Wednesday, a ribbon-cutting ceremony will take place at 10 a.m. with RoNetco Supermarkets co-President & Chief Operating Officer Dominick J. Romano and co-President & Chief Financial Officer David Romano joining the fun at 1 Wiebel Plaza with lots of fanfare, a flag-raising ceremony, demos, promotional items and giveaways, live music, a photo booth, face painter and balloon artist.

“RoNetco Supermarkets has a long history of commitment to the communities where our ShopRite stores operate, and we look forward to officially becoming a part of the great Sussex community,” Dominick Romano said.

With an emphasis on reducing its eco-footprint, the new ShopRite of Sussex features energy-efficient refrigeration and lighting, with LED lighting throughout the store and its parking lot.

Featured Departments include: True Value Hardware; fresh, walk-in Seafood Market; full-service Meat Department; and a fresh-to-table Prepared Foods and Deli Department.
