Stores That Could Replace New York ShopRite’s When They Close
ShopRite announced a bunch of New York store closings which has many wondering what should replace them. Here are 5 stores that would be perfect!

ShopRite in Wawarsing, NY Closing
The ShopRite location at 1 Shoprite Blvd, Ellenville, NY has been one of only a few grocery store choices for area residents for the last 30 years. The store opened back in 1993 and for a while was Ellenville, and the surrounding area's main choice for groceries. That changed when Walmart opened (2013?) and could be one of the reasons why the store has decided to not renew its lease when it expires, which means the store should be closed by the summer of 2024 according to the Daily Freeman.
