KEASBEY, N.J. — The two former SuperFresh stores in Maryland purchased by Village Super Market reopened under the ShopRite banner Thursday, Wakefern Food Corp. [2] here said.

The stores, located in Timonium and White Oak, will hold ribbon-cutting ceremonies on Sunday. Village Super Market, a Springfield, N.J.-based member of the Wakefern co-op, acquired the stores in a bankruptcy auction in May and mark Village’s first locations in Maryland. Village operates 26 ShopRite locations in New Jersey and Pennsylvania.

ShopRite entered Maryland in 2009 when Forest Hill, Md.-based Klein’s Family Markets joined the cooperative and switched to the ShopRite banner at its seven stores in the Baltimore area. Since then, Collins Family Markets, a Wakefern member based in Philadelphia, has also opened in the state.
