Mayor Capello scheduled to cut the ribbon at June 23rd grand opening celebration
Lebanon, PA (June 18, 2015) –
PriceRite announced today that it will celebrate the opening of its 58th
store and newest clean, fresh and friendly location in Lebanon, Pennsylvania with a ribbon cutting ceremony scheduled for Tuesday, June 23rd
at 9 AM. Mayor Sherry Capello, along with other city and county officials are scheduled to attend and cut the ribbon on the brand new 42,000 square foot store.
Also in attendance at the grand opening event will be representatives from the Central Pennsylvania Food Bank to accept a $15,000 donation on behalf of local Price Rite stores. Fighting hunger in the local community is at the heart of Price Rite’s charitable giving. Each year, Price Rite donates more than $350,000 to food banks in the communities served by its stores.
Troy Williams, Executive Director of the Lebanon County Christian Ministries and several other leaders from faith based churches in the area will also attend to receive special donations to commemorate the opening of the store.
Located adjacent to Boscov’s department store at 2231 Lebanon Valley Mall, the Price Rite of Lebanon brings 125 full and part-time jobs to the community. The store features some of the industry’s leading “green technologies,” including glass doors on dairy cases, and energy-efficient lighting and refrigeration throughout the store.
Price Rite’s mission is to provide customers with a “clean, fresh, and friendly” shopping experience every day. Also known for its unmatched value, Price Rite offers customers the same quality foods as traditional supermarkets at about half the price, and with 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; as well as dairy and frozen food products.
“At Price Rite, it is our philosophy that customers shouldn’t have to sacrifice quality to save on price. We are delighted to extend this commitment to the Lebanon community with the opening of this store, the eighth Price Rite to serve the great state of Pennsylvania,” said Neil Duffy, president of Price Rite. “We are grateful to our new neighbors for their support and we look forward to having a positive impact on the community.”
To further reduce costs and pass along those savings to customers, Price Rite does limited advertising and publishes a monthly rather than a weekly circular. Customers are encouraged to use their own bags or to purchase a reusable bag for 10¢ each, which benefits the environment while containing costs. By focusing on keeping operating costs low, Price Rite is proud to pass significant savings along to its customers.
