Price Rite has been working closely with Jubilee Homes of Syracuse Inc., a local nonprofit, and city, county and state officials to bring the new store to an area designated as a food desert, providing a service oriented supermarket in addition to over 100 full and part-time jobs to the local economy once the store opens.
Known for its everyday low prices, the store will feature a wide selection of fresh produce, organic products and a variety of private label and national grocery brands – at about half the cost of a traditional supermarket. The new Price Rite of Southwest Syracuse will employ the supermarket’s shopper-friendly, 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. Price Rite of Southwest Syracuse 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.
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. Price Rite 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.
