Not too much to see here, but this former ShopRite (which if I'm not mistaken was owned by Saker Supermarkets, although I'm not positive of that) is located to the northeast of center city Bethlehem. It's around 36,000 square feet, which is right in line with many of the 1970s ShopRites. I'm not positive whether the tall sign seen here is left over from ShopRite, but it wouldn't surprise me if that were the case. ShopRite might not be in this immediate neighborhood, but the Wakefern cooperative has returned with a store just a few doors down on Stefko Boulevard. Head over to The Independent Edition tomorrow to check it out!
