Weis celebrates Camp Hill remodel
SUNBURY, Pa. — Weis Markets earlier this week announced the completion of an extensive remodel of its Camp Hill, Pa., store.
“We’ve taken a very good store and made it better by improving its design and overall convenience,” Weis Markets’ director of public relations Dennis Curtin said. “We’ve also expanded most of our fresh departments and increased the selection throughout the store.”
The remodeled 54,791-sq.-ft. store has expanded produce, deli, seafood and floral departments, all new décor, a more open store design offering improved convenience and increased selection. This is the store’s second remodel since it opened in 2001. The store was open during the project.
During the ceremony, Weis will donate $5,000 to Bethesda Mission’s West Shore outreach program benefiting food pantries and hunger organizations in Cumberland and Perry counties; $1,000 to the Lower Allen Township Fire Department and $500 to New Cumberland Youth Football. Also part of the grand reopening, Weis’ teams currently are distributing 2,500 bags of free groceries worth $33 per bag, total value $83,000, in nearby neighborhoods.
This is Weis Markets fourth major project since June. Earlier this summer, it opened a new store in the Lehigh Valley, a replacement unit near Reading and completed a major addition in York.
A&P opens first new store in Pennsylvania in more than 10 years
MONTVALE, N.J. — Grocer A&P officially opened on Friday its new Superfresh store, featuring a full-service pharmacy and expanded international offerings, in Philadelphia’s Northern Liberties neighborhood.
The 51,000-sq.-ft. neighborhood store marks A&P’s first new store in Pennsylvania in more than 10 years, and brings nearly 120 new jobs to the community.
“One of our administration’s Greenworks Philadelphia goals is to bring local food within 10 minutes of 75% of our residents,” Philadelphia mayor Michael Nutter said. “This supermarket, which is on the corner of three neighborhoods, is ideally situated to provide healthy, fresh food options to many Philadelphians who previously lacked this option. I would like to welcome Superfresh into this community, and this addition will continue to draw new residents, visitors and businesses to the Northern Liberties neighborhood.”
Highlights of the new location include an expanded selection of locally grown produce, meat, poultry and seafood; an in-store sushi bar; prepared favorites across its hot food, antipasto, olive, soup, salad and wing bars; grab-and-go meals; expanded international offerings; and a full-service pharmacy. The store also will offer delivery service to customers, within two hours of their purchases.
The pharmacy will offer free home delivery, easy prescription transfers, email and text messaging notification, an enhanced opt-in automatic refill program and personal patient counseling. In addition, pharmacists will administer flu shots beginning in September through the company’s Live Better Wellness Pharmacy-Based Immunization Program.
The company operates 336 stores in seven states under the following trade names: A&P, Waldbaum’s, Pathmark, Best Cellars, The Food Emporium, Super Foodmart, Superfresh and Food Basics.
