Slingerlands ShopRite opening at end of September

vista technology campus signShopRite announced today that its new store at the Vista Technology Campus in Slingerlands (on Route 85) will open September 30. (press release post jump)

The store is the third of four the chain is aiming to open in this area. A Niskayuna location opened a year ago and the Albany location opened in April. A fourth location is planned for Colonie. Coincidentally or not (probably not), all those spots are close to Price Chopper locations. In fact, the Slingerlands location is literally right across the road from the Chopper there. [Biz Review]

The chain says the new store will offer the "ShopRite from Home" delivery service. That's apparently been popular here -- the company is expanding its Niskayuna store to make more room for the service. [Biz Review]

Interesting non-grocery bit: ShopRite says the Slingerlands location will include a park and ride lot for CDTA routes #13 (New Scotland Ave) and #18 (Delaware Ave). Both those routes run into downtown Albany.

Comments

I've used ShopRite home delivery a couple of times and have been very impressed with the fresh produce and meat, free delivery, and excellent service. Won me over from the Chopper.

Slingerlands passed up on Target and Walmart, so I'm surprised ShopRite didn't expand their nonfood offerings at this store... Glad that CDTA is adding a bus shelter and stop there, so I don't have to try to walk across 85 :) (Although, does this mean 13 won't be able to run on Holland Ave anymore and have to use Madison instead to get to New Scotland? The 734 is being eliminated soon, AFAIK...)

I wonder what other stores/restaurants they're putting in this same general plaza... probably a bank/credit union, a liquor store, a drug store (CVS? Walgreens?), dollar store, some burger/pizza joint, maybe a Starbucks or even (please) Jamba Juice...

I feel that when people don't confront inappropriate behavior it sends a signal that it is tolerated. I often speak up in situations like these, depending on my reading of the situation. If we consider ourselves part of a community we all have a role to play in signaling what is and isn't appropriate behavior.
