Shop-Rite Comes to Newark

Shop-Rite to build new store in Newark

Wal-Mart is out. ShopRite is in.

The supermarket chain has signed a lease to be the anchor tenant at the Springfield Avenue Marketplace in Newark.

Wal-Mart had been rumored to be considering the vacant 11-acre site but faced criticism from dozens of community groups opposed to the box store’s low wages and its potentially harmful effect on local businesses.
