'World's Largest' ShopRite Opens

BRODHEADSVILLE, Pa. — Officials of Wakefern Food Corp. and members of the Kinsley family that owns the local ShopRite here unveiled a new, 95,000-square-foot replacement store on Friday, nearly doubling the size of the old ShopRite nearby.

The new location features an expanded organics department, beer to go and prepared foods, Christopher Kinsley Sr., general manager and vice president, told SN during a preview event.

Kinsley said the project represents a $26 million investment. Whimsical design flourishes include a model train track suspended above the checkout lines, and a collection of antiques including a 1926 Model T Ford. Kinsley said the antiques come from a family-owned collection and represent the heritage of the company, founded by Kinsley's grandfather in 1950.

The store replaces a 53,000-square-foot location nearby.
