The history of ShopRite
ShopRite was founded in 1946 by a sales rep from Del Monte Foods. Independent grocers were complaining that they weren't getting good prices when they bought whoelsale - so the rep suggested they buy together as a cooperative. That's how ShopRite was formed, though it didn't get its name until 1951.
Within 10 years, they had 70 members and made over $100 million annually. Today, they have nearly 300 stores under the Wakefern Food Corporation. Because they're a cooperative, the stores don't have any set layout or design, so a lot of them look quite different from each other!
What's in a name? ShopRite's slogans change over the years
Like many stores ShopRite's slogan has changed quite a bit over the years to keep up with the changing times. They've had lots of different slogans throughout the decades.
One of their first ones was "Why pay more? Shop at a ShopRite store!" In the 1970s, two new slogans were introduced: "Hey Mom, what's for dinner? ShopRite has the answer!" and "ShopRite does the Can Can, selling lots of brands." The Can Can slogan is actually still used today!
The 1980s saw the arrival of "ShopRite does it right", which was later modified to "We save you (more) money! ShopRite does it right!".
In 1994, they introduced "ShopRite and alaways save." Two years later, they had "What's for dinner? ShopRite has the answer!" In 1999, they used "Always fresh...always for less!"
The 2000s had a few new slogans, too, like "One place. your place", "It makes a difference where you shop", and "We're all about food. We're all about savings. We're all about you." The third one is their current slogan!
