New ShopRite brings healthy food and healthcare to underserved Philadelphia community!
Brown’s Super Stores, who has been nationally recognized for opening supermarkets in ‘food desert’ locations, is proud to announce the opening of its eleventh ShopRite store, the new ShopRite of Fox Street. A ribbon cutting event took place on August 1, 2013 at 10am at the ShopRite of Fox Street on 2800 Fox Street in Philadelphia, and included a celebration with live entertainment from Harold Melvin’s Blue Notes. Former Governor Ed Rendell, Councilman Curtis Jones, and other dignitaries were in attendance.
The new ShopRite of Fox Street is a 71,000 square foot supermarket anchoring the Baker’s Centre, located on the former Tasty Baking Factory site in the Allegheny West section of Philadelphia. ShopRite of Fox Street, which has created more than 300 new jobs for local residents, will have all of the features that customers have come to love from Brown family ShopRites.
Features of the state-of-the-art store will include a wide variety of quality products, low prices, and friendly associates, as well as the community support Brown’s Super Stores is known for. “We are thrilled to be joining this community, which has been without a supermarket for more than twenty years,” said Jeff Brown, President and CEO of Brown’s Super Stores. “After operating supermarkets in Philadelphia for 25 years and collaborating with this local community for over three years, I believe we have developed one of the most innovative retail experiences available today.”
Brown’s Authentic products such as the popular Sweet Potato line, a large International Department, fresh seafood including Live Fish, and a hot Chinese buffet, will be available at ShopRite of Fox Street. It will also feature Brown’s all new Fire Grilled Chicken and a Chickie’s and Pete’s Express.
Brown’s mission is to “Bring Joy to the Lives of the People We Serve”, and this store aims to accomplish that mission through its innovative offerings. The store represents Brown’s vision for the future of supermarkets, which includes affordable financial services through an in-store American Heritage Credit Union offering no-fee banking, as well as, QCare, a convenient care clinic.
QCare will be operated by Resource for Human Development Family Practice and Counseling Network and will provide customers with affordable, quality healthcare offering flexible hours in a convenient location. The new store will also offer the free services of an in-store nutritionist, application assistance for public benefits, and free use of community rooms where local groups can safely gather and meet.
