I went to the PriceRite in the former Pathmark location in Camden, NJ. It's similar to Bottom Dollar Food that it's a discount grocery chain and one must bring their own bags.

It is actually through Wakefern, although this site is owned by the Ravitz family. The generic items are branded as PriceRite and not ShopRite.

Would the Ravitz family be able to operate such as store at the former ShopRite on Brace Rd.?

It doesn't have a meat dept., deli or bakery. And no pharmacy. But I think Brace Rd/Kings Highway area already has those covered through the Whole Foods, Wegmans and 2 CVS stores, but maybe they could run it as general grocery store with low prices on things, and that is less expensive to operate.

Do you think that that would work with the demographics living in the vicinity of Brace Road?

It doesn't sell meat, or no butchers? Bottom Dollar had packaged food and no services - no pharmacy, no bakery.

I'm sorry, I meant no butchers. The produce section was pick your own, like Bottom Dollar Food, unlike Aldi.

I think so. And, it would fit with RetroFitness and Burger King, which are catering to those looking to spend less.

The rest of the items that it sold were typical items one could get at a regular grocery store, but just at lower prices. It was a clean and well maintained store, operated/owned by the Ravitz family, supported by Wakefern. The Brace Rd. building might be still leased by that family.

That store, since it was Wilmington Dry Goods, has served Barclay Farms & you think that they'll hop on a store that's serving Camden. I don't think that the people in Haddontown will be excited either. Let's not forget that that store also draws from Haddonfield. Yet you think that that's a good idea with those demographics.

Aldi services Camden too. You think CH people should not support the CH Aldi store because Aldi services Camden with a Camden store?

I don't see how Wilmington Dry Goods serving CH has relevance. It's ancient history.

You asked if it was a good idea I said no, based on the demographics. I lived in the area served by that store for over 40 years which should be evident because I remember the ice skating rink that was there before Wilmington Dry Goods was there. The area didn't support the KMart that was there after the Dry Goods closed. Why do you think that Price Rite is a good idea?
