Expanded store provides wider and improved variety of products. The Stop & Shop Supermarket Company LLC has completed a major remodel of its store located at 404 Springfield Avenue in Berkeley Heights. The store underwent a four-month remodel and store expansion to provide customers with an extensive product selection and features for a more convenient shopping experience.
“With an additional 3,000 square feet added to the original store, we are able to offer customers a wider variety of products at the everyday savings and value they expect from us,” said Peter Stretenovic, store manager. Customers in the Berkeley Heights area will find key departments such as produce, deli, meat, and seafood have been freshened with new décor and fixtures along with an improved variety of product. Other departments such as health and beauty care, dairy and frozen foods have been expanded.
Emphasizing Stop & Shop’s ongoing commitment to health and wellness, customers will find a broader assortment of natural and organic products in an expanded section called Nature’s Promise Marketplace, which includes more than 2,500 dairy, grocery and special diet selections. To assist customers on gluten-free diets due to celiac disease or other health concerns, the gluten-free products now have special blue coded shelf tags that highlight the products.
With an eye on energy conservation, LED lighting was newly installed in many areas of the store including overhead track lights, frozen food cases, spotlights on specialty display areas and exterior store signs. LED lights are longer-lasting and are expected to reduce wattage by half.
