“Price Rite greatly values its associates, as it takes a team effort to deliver a great shopping experience for our customers,” said Neil Duffy, president of Price Rite Supermarkets. “We look forward to welcoming new team members to our Erie store and making them a part of our tight-knit Price Rite family,”
Price Rite’s mission is to provide customers with a clean, fresh and friendly shopping experience while offering the same quality foods as traditional supermarkets at about half the price, offering customers the convenience of warehouse club-style shopping without the membership fees or bulk-buying requirements. The supermarket chain takes a variety of different approaches to help keep costs down and pass along those savings to customers, including spending less on advertising and store décor than conventional stores, and encouraging customers 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 new Price Rite of Erie will employ the supermarket chain’s simple, convenient format, including fresh produce delivered daily; packaged meats; baked goods; a variety of private label and national grocery brands; and dairy and frozen food, along with organic, natural and gluten-free products. Price Rite of Erie will also feature some of the industry’s leading “green technologies,” including glass doors on dairy cases and energy-efficient lighting and refrigeration throughout the entire store.
