Shelton AARP members learn all about ShopRite supermarket

Shelton-Aarp-Shoprite2Jamie McIntyre, a representative from ShopRite supermarkets, speaks at a recent meeting of AARP Chapter 3240 at the Shelton Senior Center.

Shelton-Aarp-Shoprite1McIntyre discussed the history of ShopRite and how “Grandfather Cingari” had started in the food business by selling pasta door to door in Stamford. His sons followed him into the business, and they opened more stores and offered newer products, she said.

There is a ShopRite on Bridgeport Avenue in Shelton as well as one nearby in Derby.
