Camden Getting New Supermarket

New Jersey’s most impoverished city is getting a new supermarket.

Facebook

City officials say a 75,000-square-foot ShopRite store is planned for Admiral Wilson Boulevard and South 17th Street and will likely open in 2015. They say the store will help address a food-retailer shortage in Camden and bring hundreds of new jobs and significant tax revenues to the city.

The new supermarket will anchor a 20-acre retail shopping center that will be known as Admiral Wilson Plaza. It will include several restaurants and many other stores.

The city of nearly 80,000 now has three supermarkets.

A city spokesman says the project will receive some type of public assistance but funding details are still to be worked out.
