WARWICK, N.Y. — It's only been a few weeks since renovation wrapped up at ShopRite in Warwick, but sales have already started to climb, and store officials are feeling the impact.
"The store was good prior to the renovations, but we've already seen tremendous success," Warwick Store Director Charlie Sladek told Daily Voice.
Following the one-year renovation, ShopRite will hold a grand reopening on Saturday, Oct. 7, at 10 a.m.
In addition to the renovated facade, the store now boasts an 11,000-square-foot addition.
Because of the added space, every single department was able to expand — with a focus on organic and gluten-free products, Sladek said.
The extensive prepared foods department — conveniently located next to the new cafe — includes a hot Asian food bar, sandwich bar and more.
On Oct. 19, the store will install self-checkout booths. Other features at the store include mobile scan, which allows customers to scan items from their phones as they shop; ShopRite from home, allowing customers to pre-order groceries and fulfill orders from home; a local beef program in the meat department expanded produce; and a fresh floral section.
