If the ShopRite in Lakewood is your weekly grocery destination, starting next week, you'll have to change your route a little bit. The store is closing on Tuesday (April 21st). The company has issued a statement to address community concerns about the closing:

Saker ShopRites, the store's owners, provided the following statement to The Lakewood Scoop

“Saker ShopRites is proud to have served its neighbors in the Lakewood community for more than 50 years. Although the store will be closing effective Tuesday, April 21, 2015, we hope you will visit us at nearby ShopRite locations in Bricktown, Toms River and Jackson, as well as the new, state-of-the-art, 80,000 square foot ShopRite of Howell, which is scheduled to open on Wednesday, April 22.”

They also pointed out that there are a number of other ShopRite locations that offer full Kosher sections, click here for the full statement and list of other ShopRites with "Kosher Experience" locations.
