ShopRite’s 70,000-square-foot store at Christina Crossing on the Wilmington Riverfront offers rooftop parking, elevators and a cartveyor escalator—all firsts for Delaware. The Kenny family’s megastore lays claim to the largest meat department in the state, a giant produce department, an in-house floral designer and lots of ethnic specialties. The North Wilmington store has the only full-service certified-Kosher bakery and deli in the state. Find Halal goods, too. Vegans are well served in the Live Rite with ShopRite aisles. And you won’t find better birthday cakes.
Critic John Gardner loves the rooftop parking, elevators and cartveyor escalator system at Delaware’s newest ShopRite, a 70,000-square-foot store near the Wilmington Riverfront. “But what’s really fabulous is that you can order your lunch meat at a computer,” he says.
