As a former resident of the city, I can say don’t underestimate the luxury of having another place to buy your groceries!
Wilmingtonians now have that opportunity.
On December 27th, 2008 the Kenny Family ShopRites of Delaware opened their fourth store at 501 South Walnut Street in Wilmington near the Riverfront. This 70,000-square-foot world-class supermarket superstore designed specifically for Wilmington.
What does that mean?
From the press release:
The store has many unique design features which are a first for Delaware: roof-top parking, customer elevators, a cartveyor system, and numerous in-store department enhancements. The new store has the largest meat department in Delaware.
Almost lost in all of the fanfare here is the fact that the new store has provided almost 200 new jobs for Delaware residents.
