A new PriceRite is coming to 1205 West Pratt Street in the Mt. Clare Junction Shopping Center, Baltimore, MD with a grand opening celebration and ribbon-cutting ceremony scheduled for Wednesday, December 12, 2012 at 10:00 AM. Scheduled to attend the event are Baltimore Mayor Rawlings-Blake and Leslie Marsiglia, Director of Annual Programs at the Maryland Food Bank, as well as other local officials and community leaders. To commemorate the opening of the new store, the PriceRite of Baltimore will also present the Maryland Food Bank with a special donation at the ceremony.
This location marks the second PriceRite location in the greater Baltimore area and the first in the city of Baltimore, where customers can enjoy PriceRite’s tradition of savings and convenience of warehouse club-style shopping without the membership fees or bulk-buying requirements. This new store will bring 130 full- and part-time jobs to the city of Baltimore.
PriceRite’s mission is to provide customers with a “clean, fresh, and friendly” shopping experience every day. Also known for its unmatched value, PriceRite offers customers the same quality foods as traditional supermarkets with savings of up to 50% off their food bill.
The 39,000 sq. ft, state-of-the-art 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.
PriceRite stores feature 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. The PriceRite of Baltimore will also provide customers with a fresh seafood department, which will feature seasonal and sustainably sourced seafood selections delivered fresh daily.
To further reduce costs and pass along those savings to customers, PriceRite employs limited advertising and does not publish a weekly circular. Customers are encouraged to use their own bags or to buy them as needed for 10¢ each, which benefits the environment while containing costs. By focusing on keeping operating costs low, PriceRite is proud to pass significant savings along to its customers.
“At PriceRite, it is our philosophy that our customers shouldn’t have to sacrifice quality to save on price,” said Kathy Freedman, spokesperson for PriceRite. “We are excited to expand our service to our Baltimore neighbors with the addition of this new store and we are thankful to the community for its continued support.”
PriceRite’s first store in Maryland opened on Security Boulevard in Baltimore County in 2011. A second Maryland location opened its doors in District Heights last month.
