ShopRite of Livingston has been successful with both delivery and pick-up ordering.
Customers can go home with groceries and snacks for the ride without even getting out of the car. ShopRite of Livingston debuted what it calls ShopRite from Home in late 2012; customers quickly learned to place orders online for either delivery or pickup. Melanie Gould, a loyal Livingston shopper, has become "hooked," she says, on the service. "I call it drive-in shopping," says Gould. "I order from home and then I literally drive into the parking lot. The people load the groceries and I go." Walter Broscius, director of technology for Village Super Market, Inc., which owns and operates the ShopRite of Livingston, explains that the feedback has been positive. "Livingston ShopRite customers comment time and again not only on the convenience…

Touring ShopRite with Livingston ShopRite's dietician.
Grocery shopping can be daunting because there are so many choices. So when I had the opportunity to tour the Livingston ShopRite with dietician Christine Patorniti, I jumped along with my fellow “Biggest Improver” teammates, Laurie Jung and Susan Meyers, to get an insider’s view of the grocery store shelves. We met Patorniti when she and Jung, the school nurse, recently organized a “Biggest Improver” competition for Burnet Hill Elementary School staff, and Patorniti visited every two weeks with information, samples, recipes, and inspiration. She educated us on the breadth of the healthy, low-cal food scene. Even more questions – and solutions – arose at the grocery store. Patorniti understands that it is a never-ending challenge to …

Livingston's Shoprite features valet parking, after trying it out in December.
A minivan's bumper sticker reads "Swim Team Limo." Another reads "Honor Student on Board." No matter what the sticker says, at ShopRite of Livingston, every car can have special treatment. After a trial run in December, optional weekend valet parking is here to stay at ShopRite. "With the popularity of the new Village, ShopRite's prepared food department, and the number of people who come on the weekends," explains a Wakefern representative, "we decided to offer this valet service." The service is free of charge, and says a Wakefern representative, "our customers love it." Have you tried the valet parking? Tell us in the comments.

It used to be $400. But because of Hurricane Sandy, all you have to do is spend $300 by November 22, and you can get a free turkey for your holiday table.
It's all to help people affected by Hurricane Sandy. ShopRite has lowered the amount shoppers must spend in order to qualify for a free Thanksgiving turkey, according to Supermarket News. The traditional ShopRite turkeyfest happens once a year. During that time, shoppers who spend a certain amount of money can pick up a free turkey for their Thanksgiving table. This year, the supermarket recognizes that people who were affected by the recent hurricane probably didn't have food shopping on their minds - especially with areas of central New Jersey not having electricity, in some cases, for more than a week. The free turkey threshold was $400. ShopRite has changed that to $300, Supermarket News reports. The promotion, which runs from October…

Elected officials work the check out line to register with residents the need to help feed the hungry.
“Why is the mayor bagging my cat food?” Indeed, some shoppers at the Livingston ShopRite thought they were seeing things as Mayor Rudy Fernandez, Deputy Mayor Steve Santola, and Assemblywoman Mila Jasey were on hand to bag groceries as part of ShopRite’s Partners In Caring campaign to Help Bag Hunger in our community. It was all part of September’s National Hunger Action Month in which governors across six states, including New Jersey, issued proclamations declaring Sept. 21 as “ShopRite Partners In Caring Day.” Paul Barbato, assistant manager of ShopRite of Livingston, explained that each store works with the Community FoodBank of New Jersey in raising money to fight hunger. Since its founding in 1999, ShopRite Partners In Caring has…
