SCARSDALE, N.Y. — A new 57,000-square-foot ShopRite here features several green technologies to help reduce waste, protect the environment and create a more energy-efficient shopping experience.
Owned by SRS Stores, which operates this location as well as 28 other ShopRite stores in the Northeast, the store will include glass doors on the dairy and freezer cases, LED and T-8 lighting, environmentally friendly refrigerant systems and a store-wide energy reduction system.
The store will also offer an on-site registered dietitian, who will be available daily for customer consultation. This free service will give customers the opportunity to discuss their health and dietary needs with a nutritional professional to create customized meal plans. The dietitian will also educate customers on how to shop for healthy meals, proper nutrition for specific medical conditions or how to get more fruits and vegetables into your diet. The dietitian will organize cooking classes to encourage healthier eating and will also offer monthly screenings for specific health issues such as diabetes or high cholesterol.
The store’s home delivery service allows customers to place online orders from their home computer or mobile device and have their groceries delivered to their homes.
