PriceRite Opens First Baltimore Store

BALTIMORE — PriceRite, the price-impact banner operated by Wakefern Food Corp., is slated to open its first store in this city this Wednesday.

The 39,000-square-foot location in the Mt. Clare Junction Shopping Center is the second in the Baltimore area for the banner. The new store will feature several energy-saving technologies, such as glass doors on dairy cases and energy-efficient lighting and refrigeration throughout the store, Wakefern said in a statement. It will employ 130 people.

PriceRite’s first store in Maryland opened on Security Boulevard in Baltimore County in 2011. A second Maryland location opened in District Heights last month.

Keasbey, N.J.-based Wakefern expanded its flagship ShopRite banner to 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.
