ShopRite has opened the doors of its newest full-service supermarket, a 70,000-square-foot store that serves as the anchor tenant at The Boulevard, a new shopping center in the New Dorp section of Staten Island, N.Y.
Located at 2656 Hylan Blvd., the store is operated by Mannix Family Supermarkets Inc. and will be open 24 hours daily.
The new store “elevates the supermarket shopping experience” by offering services such as an in-store registered dietitian, beauty adviser, ShopRite from Home online ordering and restaurant-quality options for customers, ShopRite said in a release. Both the registered dietitian and beauty adviser offer free consultations to customers seeking advice on health and wellness and skincare and beauty products.
Here’s a look inside the new ShopRite …
The Boulevard store will stock more than 40,000 items, and offer nearly 3,000 sale items each week, along with a selection of more than 2,000 gluten-free and organic products.
Organic fruits and vegetables, as well as locally grown items, can be found in the produce department, known as the “Produce Patch.”
The store places an emphasis on local with in-store offerings from well-known local vendors, including pizza and Italian appetizers and entrees from Valducci’s and local Asian cuisine and store-made sushi from Loon Chuan.
Other in-store offerings include a variety of fresh-tossed and made-to-order salads from Saladworks; made-to-order smoothies, bowls, soups, salads, juices and more from Juice Press; and a Dunkin’.
“We are very excited to present to both our customers and associates a fantastic supermarket shopping experience in our new store at The Boulevard,” said Kevin Mannix, store owner and operator along with his son, Timothy Mannix, of Mannix Family Supermarkets. They also own and operate two ShopRite supermarkets in the Charleston and Graniteville sections of Staten Island.
The ShopRite at The Boulevard will employ about 500 associates and hiring is ongoing at the store.
