HOBOKEN -- Lt. Governor Kim Guadagno on Monday visited ShopRite of Hoboken to meet with employees and customers as part of her continuing efforts to highlight the spirit and resilience of New Jersey’s towns and businesses in the wake of Superstorm Sandy. ShopRite of Hoboken reopened in February after undergoing extensive renovations. The entire building was gutted and new floors, fixtures and lighting were installed as well as several environmentally conscious features.
“The reopening of ShopRite of Hoboken less than six months after Superstorm Sandy is just the latest example of the strength and resiliency of New Jersey’s entrepreneurs and businesses,” said Lt. Governor Guadagno. “The ShopRite of Hoboken has been rebuilt better and stronger, and I commend the owners and staff for their commitment to reopen and serve the city’s residents, many of whom experienced severe devastation during the storm.”
“My family and I are so grateful to our Hoboken neighbors for their patience and support as we worked to reopen our doors after the devastating effects of Superstorm Sandy,” said Larry Inserra, president of Inserra Supermarkets, which owns and operates the ShopRite of Hoboken. “With the help of the community, our associates and our loyal ShopRite customers, we are better, brighter and fresher than ever - and serving the beautiful city of Hoboken once more.”
Several assistance programs are or will soon be available to help New Jersey businesses rebuild and recover from Superstorm Sandy. Visit the state’s business portal at www.newjerseybusiness.gov.
