ShopRite super markets is retailers cooperative. This store is present in 6 states of US viz Connecticut, New York, New Jersey, Maryland, Pennsylvania, Delaware.
ShopRite has 48 individually operated affiliates with over 296 stores. This is the largest affiliate in the cooperative.
ShopRite was originated in 1946, because of Del Monte foods representative of sales had a discussion about independent grocers in the state of Newark, New Jersey. There were problems in getting the suitable prices for wholesale products. So, the representative of Del Monte advised the grocers to make cooperative buying a main point. Then almost seven of the grocers accepted and started by paying $1000 each so that they can launch Wakefern Foods, which was integrated on December 5th 1946. The name “ShopRite” was created in 1951.
In 1958, ShopRite took a step by cutting the prices by 10 percent which was a successful move towards other supermarkets and thus resulted in creating more and more ShopRite stores. By 1961, Wakefern had totally 70 members with $100 million Annual sales results.
Because of the cooperative systems, there has been no format for building architecture, store layout and also scheme of storefonts. Most of the stores were opened and turned out to be Owner’s style. The Ronetco Family of stores almost had different looks when seen from outside. So as the large corporations buy stores, in recent years there was common features in building and store layout.
Currently, ShopRite extended it’s stores towards northeast from Washington in Maryland to Hartford in Connecticut. And also is stretching as far as New York’s Capital District. We can clearly see that New Jersey is the home for most of the ShopRite stores. When in 2010, ShopRite also started it’s presence in Connecticut by purchasing 11 former Shaw’s Stores.
ShopRite currently also has gas stations at most of the locations such as Albany and Colonie. In 2013, ShopRite was the only unionized supermarket in that area. And on 20th July 2015, A&P Competitor has filed a chapter 11 bankruptcy and approved plans to close all the stores. ShopRite acquired 13 supermarkets in bankruptcy auction in A&P’s.
