The new Shop Rite, located in Cedar Knolls is open, with a grand opening celebration scheduled for Sun. Nov 10. Interestingly they are calling it Shop Rite of Greater Morristown. I am wondering how Morristown feels, since the owners of the store used to own a Shop Rite in Morristown, (where Staples is not located) but closed it, saying that they just could not make a profit in a store in Morristown. I also wonder how Cedar Knolls feels about that slap in the face. Didn't they offer incentives/tax breaks for the store to be built there?
As far as the new store, it seems they are trying to be just like Wegmans.
(who are supposed to soon open a store, also in Hanover Twp, a mere 3 miles away at Ridgedale Ave and Rte 10, )
Anyone visited the new store? A commenter on one of the articles indicate that the Shop Rite in Morris Plains has closed, anyone know if this is accurate?
