Wakefern Food Corp. banner Brookdale ShopRite now includes an EVgo Inc. electric vehicle (EV) fast-charging station at its 1409 Broad Street parking lot in Bloomfield, New Jersey, the company said on Tuesday.
“We are excited to work with EVgo to unveil this new charging station for our ShopRite customers and the people of Bloomfield,” said Neil Greenstein, a third-generation grocer and owner-operator of Brookdale ShopRite, in a statement. “We recently completed an extensive renovation of the Brookdale store, and the next step was providing a fast electric vehicle charging station in our parking lot. At ShopRite, we are always looking for ways to provide the best possible shopping experience for our customers and making it easier for people to charge their electric vehicles is part of that commitment.”
A family-owned business that has operated for more than 50 years, Brookdale ShopRite’snew EVgo charging station outside the store is available to both customers and others in the area. The station features charging from 100kW up to 350kW and can serve four vehicles simultaneously, ShopRite said.
This latest launch is part of a push to install charging stations in communities where ShopRite stores operate, the Wakefern banner said in a statement.
“EVgo builds charging stations in convenient locations where drivers can charge their EV while completing their everyday activities, like going to the grocery store,” said Stacy Huston, director of Portfolio Accounts at EVgo, in a statement. “As more drivers transition to electric vehicles, EVgo is excited to expand partnerships with site hosts like Brookdale ShopRite to increase access to EV charging and build more infrastructure in communities in New Jersey and beyond.”
ShopRite plans to add more electric vehicle charging stations to its stores.
“Wakefern’s electric vehicle charging initiative is important to the cooperative and our supermarket banners. This is an ambitious effort to work with providers to bring this critical infrastructure to many of our stores and communities,” said Andrew Pittel, manager of real estate at Wakefern.
From a small, local cooperative that began with eight grocery store owners, Wakefern Food Corp. has now grown into the largest retailer-owned cooperative in the United States, with its members operating more than 300 stores under the ShopRite, Price Rite Marketplace, The Fresh Grocer, Dearborn Market, Gourmet Garage and Fairway Market banners throughout the Mid-Atlantic and New England.
