Keasbey, NJ (April 16, 2018) -- Inserra Supermarkets, Inc., which operates 22 ShopRite stores in New York and New Jersey, was joined by local leaders, including Wyckoff Mayor Brian Scanlan and Congressman Josh Gottheimer, to officially kick off construction on its new 62,000-square-foot supermarket on Monday, April 16. The new store, located at Greenwood and Wyckoff Avenues in Wyckoff, is slated to open later this year, and will add over 200 jobs to the economy once opened.
Mayor Scanlan and Congressman Gottheimer joined Inserra Supermarket, Inc. President and CEO, Lawrence Inserra Jr., President and COO, Ron Onorato, and members of ShopRite’s management team to put the first shovels into the ground to mark the start of the project. The ground breaking ceremony also served as a platform for the Inserra family to express their gratitude for the support of the mayor and the town, and to celebrate with the community.
“We are very excited to officially begin construction to bring the ShopRite of Wyckoff to this community,” said Lawrence Inserra, Jr. president and CEO, Inserra Supermarkets, Inc. “We are incredibly thankful for the outpouring of support from the Mayor and the town, and we feel privileged to be a part of this community.

ShopRite of Wyckoff will offer a wide selection of groceries including both store and national brands, fresh produce, and a range of locally sourced foods. The store will also feature signature store departments such as Patsy’s butcher department, named for Lawrence Inserra’s grandfather, a trained butcher who helped found the Inserra grocery business, and a health and wellness department with a registered dietitian.
With an emphasis on reducing its eco-footprint, the new store will also feature an enhanced landscaped design and incorporate energy-efficient refrigeration and lighting throughout, including glass doors on all dairy and freezer cases and LED lighting throughout the store and its parking lot.
