Hoboken Shoprite To Re-Open in Seven Days, for First Time Since Sandy
On February 9, Hoboken's Shoprite will reopen.
The wait is almost over.
On February 9, the Shoprite at Ninth and Madison in Hoboken is scheduled to re-open, for the first time since Hurricane Sandy.
Beside opening back up, the owners of the Hoboken Shoprite — the Inserra family — will make a $25,000 donation to the Rebuild Hoboken Sandy Relief Fund.
“My family and I are extremely excited to reopen our doors to serve our Hoboken neighbors once more,” said Larry Inserra, president of Inserra Supermarkets, in a press release.
The re-opening of Shoprite, which has been eagerly awaited by neighborhood residents, will also include tastings and appearances from local politicians. The reopening, which will also include an official ribbon cutting, is taking place on Saturday February 9 at 9 a.m.
The entire store has been renovated after the heavy flooding it sustained during the hurricane. Once it opens, it will have been closed for more than three months.
