ShopRite coming to former Tastykake site; ground breaks next week

    The shopping center slated for the old Tasty Baking Co. will still have Tastykakes in it. A ShopRite will anchor the 220,000-sq. ft. center.

    The Business Journal reports ground will be broken on the 71,000-sq. ft. super market March 25 at the Bakers Square center in Hunting Park, and ShopRite will hire 250 people. Plans for the rest of the site include other retail stores, but little else is known.

     

    Tastykake moved operations to the Navy Yard last year.
