Harborcreek Township, Pa. (March 7, 2016) –
Price Rite has announced plans to open a new store at 4500 Buffalo Rd. in Harborcreek Township in Erie County.
Construction on the 40,000-square-foot Price Rite of Erie is underway now and a grand opening is expected in late spring or early summer.
In addition to a wide selection of fresh produce and groceries, Price Rite will bring 125 full- and part-time jobs to the community when the store opens.
“At Price Rite, it is our philosophy that customers shouldn’t have to sacrifice quality to save on price, and we are very excited to bring the Price Rite commitment now to Erie County.” said Neil Duffy, president of Price Rite.
Price Rite’s mission is to provide customers with a “clean, fresh, and friendly” shopping experience each day while offering customers the same quality foods as traditional supermarkets at about half the price. Price Rite also offers customers the convenience of warehouse club-style shopping without the membership fees or bulk-buying requirements.
Price Rite employs a simple and convenient format that includes fresh produce delivered daily; packaged meats; baked goods; a variety of private label and national grocery brands, and dairy and frozen food. Price Rite also offers organic, natural and gluten-free products.
And Price Rite does lots of things to keep costs down and pass along those savings to customers. Price Rite spends less on advertising and store décor than conventional stores, and customers are encouraged to bring their own bags or purchase a reusable bag for 10 cents. By streamlining operating costs, Price Rite can focus on providing great buys in store. Price Rite regularly features specials and amazing values on food and non-food items alike.
The Price Rite of Erie will feature some of the industry’s leading “green technologies,” including glass doors on dairy cases, and energy-efficient lighting and refrigeration throughout the new store.
