A few months ago we told you about A&P filing for bankruptcy, which at the time was only affecting one South Philly grocery store, the SuperFresh on Columbus Boulevard. Later the Pathmark at 330 Oregon Ave. was added to the list of stores closing.
Because of Pathmark’s closing, the ShopRite grocery store at 29 Snyder Ave. has decided to move into Pathmark’s location, just 1.5 miles away from their current store.
This new, bigger location for ShopRite will include an in-store cafe and seating area, an expanded area for ShopRite From Home for pick-up and delivery, an in-store dietician, an expanded catering area, larger training and break rooms, more retail space and a larger parking lot.
This move could happen as early as the spring of 2016.
