– Price Rite Marketplace, known for its everyday low prices and shopper friendly format, opened its newest store Nov. 18 in the Center City Mall, 301 Main St., in Paterson, NJ.
The Price Rite of Paterson will be run by Inserra Price Rites, the family-owned business that owns and operates 22 ShopRite stores in New Jersey and New York and one Price Rite store in Garfield, NJ.
“We are very excited and proud to bring our second Price Rite Marketplace store, with all its value, variety and service, to the Paterson community,” said Lawrence Inserra III, president of Inserra Price Rites. “Our family has been in the grocery business for more than six decades and we are committed to bringing affordable, fresh, high quality food to the communities where our stores are located.”
The family’s new, 33,000-square-foot supermarket does just that by featuring a wide selection of fresh produce, natural and organic products and a variety of private label and national grocery brands – at about half the cost of a traditional supermarket.
The new store brings 88 jobs to the community and features some of the industry’s leading green technologies. Visitors will find glass doors on dairy cases and energy-efficient lighting and refrigeration throughout the store.
At the store ribbon cutting ceremony Saturday, the Price Rite store team and Inserra family presented a $2,500 check to Rachel Laibson of the Center for Food Action, which will allocate the money to a local food bank in Paterson.
The Inserra family opened their first Price Rite store in Garfield, NJ, in 2014. The Paterson store is the third Price Rite to open in New Jersey in the last three years. The Price Rite of Camden, owned and operated by the Ravitz family and their Ravitz Family Markets, also opened in 2014.
“We are honored to be part of the city of Paterson and thankful to have had the opportunity to work with Ekaterina Valiotis of Alma Realty to bring this supermarket to the Center City Mall. We offer a full service, state-of-the-art store with discount prices, and we are really proud of that,” added Inserra.
