New Jersey’s most impoverished city is getting a new supermarket.
City officials say the 75,000-square-foot ShopRite store planned for Admiral Wilson Boulevard and South 17th Street in the city’s Marlton section 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.
Camden now has three other supermarkets.
