The store also features signature Inserra store departments such as a Bakery, Seafood and Patsy’s Butcher with a USDA Prime Dry Aged Beef Cabinet and service counter. The Butcher department is named for Inserra Supermarkets CEO Lawrence Inserra’s grandfather, Patsy Inserra, who was a trained butcher and founded the family’s grocery business.
The Inserra family opened its first ShopRite store in Lyndhurst, NJ in 1954. Since its founding, Inserra Supermarkets has been recognized for its long-held traditions of serving families and being a good neighbor and community member. Following in the footsteps of company founder Patsy Inserra, each generation of the Inserra family has built upon Patsy’s mission to lend a helping hand to those in need.
