SHOUT OUT: Because the New Milford ShopRite will remain closed for the next two months while it’s entirely renovated, its owners are providing free shuttle bus service to and from the Emerson store from 9 a.m. to 9 p.m. every day.
Customers will be served on a first-come, first-serve basis, officials with Inserra Supermarkets said.
A full renovation was required after an ice and snow storm last month collapsed the roof of the River Road store, which has operated at that site more than 50 years, they said.
In addition to repairing the roof, interior renovations include installing new flooring, reconfiguring aisles and adding a coffee shop-like area, officials said.
“While we had planned to keep the store open during the approved remodel, the roof collapse simply did not allow us to do so,” said company president and CEO Lawrence Inserra.
