ShopRite Stores Expand Pharmacy and Wellness Services 

 

            ShopRite, a favorite Northeast grocer has expanded two of their stores to include Wellness Centers with a wellness team that consists of a registered onsite dietitian and pharmacist.  They can consult with customers to help them with healthy food choices, special dietary needs, medical conditions, and medication concerns.  These expanded services can be found by going to the Greater Morristown and Parsippany NJ stores. 

            The Greater Morristown store even offers shoppers a fitness center, featuring yoga, Zumba, culinary classes, and dietitian’s corner that offers free nutrition services.  Food lovers will also enjoy the Village Food Garden, barista-made coffee’s, hand made pizzas, pastries, hand-rolled sushi, juice bar, oyster bar, and many other services. 

            Many other retail stores are choosing to expand health and wellness services which often lead to more customers at the pharmacy.  This helps increase sales and in turn creates more jobs for pharmacists and pharmacy technicians. 

            ShopRite’s Hoboken NJ store reopened last year after heavy damage from Hurricane Sandy and continues to do a booming business since its reopening.  Everything in the store had to be replaced from floor tiles to registers to refrigerators.  Larry Inserra, president of Inserra Supermarkets, Inc, the company that owns ShopRite, had this to say about the stores reopening.  “People are happy we are back,” said Inserra. 

            ShopRite is one of the largest employers in New Jersey.  Pharmacy technicians can learn more about employment opportunities at ShopRite by going to http://www.shoprite.com/career-opportunities/.
