Like other limited-assortment chains such as Aldi or SuperValu’s Save-A-Lot, PriceRite offers drastically fewer SKUs (Stock Keeping Units) than its sister ShopRite stores. The stores operate on the same principles as its competition; however, they are a bit bigger (averaging 35,000 sq. ft.) and concentrate on offering a larger “fresh food” selection.  , short for ALbrecht DIscount, is a discount supermarket chain based in Germany and one of the largest retail chains worldwide. ...

PriceRite also emphasizes the fact that its stores are US-owned, by incorporating the phrase "An American Company" into the PriceRite trademark. This is presumably to highlight the fact that much of PriceRite's competition is owned by non-US entities (Aldi is German-owned and Food Basics is operated by A&P–The Great Atlantic and Pacific Tea Company, which is 57% German-owned.)

Due to the generic nature of the name "PriceRite", and the unfamiliarity with the brand outside New England, Wakefern has also begun distributing PriceRite-branded merchandise such as health & beauty, paper products and some foodstuffs to other retail outlets, such as dollar-stores, mom-and-pop pharmacies and corner markets, and other supermarkets such as Gristedes Operating Corp., which owns Gristedes Supermarkets in New York City.

Because of its cooperative structure, Wakefern has been very careful not to cannibalize sales of its member-owned ShopRite stores by opening PriceRite stores in overlapping trade areas—thus, most stores operate in New England or Pennsylvania, outside ShopRite’s core markets.

History of PriceRite Limited Assortment Stores

It was 1995 when the Wakefern Food Corporation opened its first limited-assortment concept store in West Springfield, Massachusetts. After failing to successfully enter the warehouse club market with their PriceRite Warehouse Club concept (see below), Wakefern assigned the PriceRite name to its newest prototype: a limited-assortment, deep-discount supermarket meant to do battle with the no-frills operators which were successfully spreading across North America (Aldi, Food Basics, Save-a-Lot.) It has been suggested that this article or section be merged into ShopRite (United States). ... The Town of West Springfield (familiarly known as West Side) is a city[1] in Hampden County, Massachusetts, United States. ...

Save-A-Lot is a grocery store chain that is the thirteenth-largest retail chain and sixth-largest chain under a single banner with more than one thousand stores in the United States and $4 billion in sales. ...


In the years since the first PriceRite opened, the concept has been tweaked to emphasize the size and freshness of the perishable departments in comparison to its competition. Newer stores, such as the PriceRite of Brockton, MA (at over 40,000 sq ft) are also larger than most of the earlier stores. Wakefern has also used the concept as a replacement for under-performing ShopRite stores or in markets where the PriceRite concept was thought to be more successful. As a result, underperforming ShopRite supermarkets in places like York, PA and Weathersfield, CT have been converted to very successful PriceRite stores, keeping jobs and a supermarket in these towns.

PriceRite Warehouse Clubs

During the 1980's and early 1990’s, many American supermarket chains experimented with opening their own warehouse clubs to compete with the new clubs that were invading their trade areas and stealing market share away. SuperValu had Max-Club, Kroger had Price Savers; Meijer had SourceClub; HEB had its Bodega clubs and ShopRite opened PriceRite. Wakefern defined PriceRite as a “mini-club”, and at under 50,000 sq. ft., promoted it as a convenient alternative to the massive conventional clubs.

The logo was the same as the old ShopRite logo, only instead of the graphic of a shopping carriage with circles inside, there was a flatbed cart with square boxes on it to symbolize the wholesale nature of the store. (This saved costs on new sign-frames for the stores, since they all were previously a ShopRite and already had round sign-frames)


Unfortunately, the PriceRite MiniClubs were opened in buildings that had previously housed ailing or outdated ShopRite stores and had been simply retrofitted with warehouse-type shelving. Thus, they were much too small and didn't have enough of a following to attract shoppers away from the true warehouse competition which was opening new outlets all over the New York and Philadelphia metropolitan areas.
