Now Open: ShopRite of Yardley

shoprite of yardley

This morning was the much anticipated opening of the ShopRite of Yardley on Big Oak Road.  This shopping center site has been vacant for about 5 years, and once I heard that it was going to be a ShopRite, I made sure to drive by frequently to find out when the store would be open!

With all three kiddos by my side, we attended this mornings ribbon cutting, and then checked out the store for our selves.

Emily & David wanted to check out Scrunchy’s Playhouse, the FREE childcare that is open daily from 9am-8pm for children ages 3-8 years old.  They each received their wrist bands, which were linked to my wrist band so that I was the only person who could get them out of the room, while my contact information was taken.  David changed his mind and wanted to check out the store, but Emily hung out there coloring and watching a movie.

As we entered the store, I was given a store map/aisle directory of where everything could be found.  It was most helpful!

The store is very bright & inviting.  There is a lot to be said for a well lit shopping experience!  The aisles are wide and spacious, and the layout of the store “makes sense.”  

ShopRite of Yardley Floor Plan

One thing you can’t see from the floor plan, just past the floral department, on the same wall as produce, is the entrance to Wine & Spirits.  While this is a separate entity, this is a major convenience for shoppers who want to pick up alcohol on the same trip as grocery shopping.

I really liked that all of the dairy cases are glass front doors.  We are used to seeing those types of cases for frozen foods, but I just feel like the refrigerated items will stay cooler in a closed case than in an open one.  

A few other little things that I had noticed:

  • There is a huge organic section, unlike anything in the other local grocery stores.
  • A real cheese department!  They will take any piece of cheese you are interested in, and cut it to the portion you would like to buy.
  • All baby products are in 1 aisle – diapers, baby food, bath items.  They also have all of the Stage 1 foods together, then Stage 2, Stage 3, and Toddler foods.  Sorting by developmental stage is a nice change from digging through jars.
  • Self Checkout!  I really prefer self checkout counters, so the fact that they have a section of them, makes me very happy.
  • ShopRite from Home!  Shop from your computer, and either pick your order up at the store or have it delivered.

Now for the coupon policy … Unfortunately, it wasn’t posted anywhere in the store, but I had a nice chat with the woman at Guest Services (who is from the Clinton, NJ store).  Here’s the scoop:

  • Double Coupons up to $.99 – which means a $.99 coupon will save you $1.98
  • Limit 4 like coupons per transaction (but you of course need to be buying the number of items indicated on those 4 coupons)
  • Both coupons from the newspaper, as well as internet coupons, are accepted
  • Coupons MUST say manufacturer’s coupon – no competitor store coupons
  • Manufacturers coupons that have another store’s logo are ok

I told the woman at customer service about the coupon policy of the other local ShopRite, and she promised to pass the information along to the owner.

Overall, I am very impressed with the store.  I think I will be doing a real shopping trip there sometime in the next week or so, and I’ll let you know if anything has changed.

Have you checked out the newest ShopRite to our area?  What are your thoughts?

Back to the Gym

** This is a sponsored post.  All opinions are my own.

For the last week, I’ve been feeling pretty bad.  Not sick exactly, but I’m prone to migraines and this one has been revving up for the last week.  Today, I decided I didn’t care how bad I was still feeling (in reality today was a pretty good day) and I was going to the gym.

Once I got to the gym, my entire body was calling out to me saying, “What do you think you’re doing?  We just want a nap!”

I dropped the kids off in the childcare room, and found a treadmill with a TV on it.  I decided that if I could just walk for 15 minutes, I’d be happy and call it a day.  It was jut before noon, and I started flipping through the TV channels, a novelty since we do not have cable at home.  I came across an episode of Law & Order SVU that was just starting, an older one when Chris Meloni was still on the show, plugged in my ear buds, and started walking.

I didn’t want to overdo it, so I kept a slow and steady pace around 3.2 mph.  Not fast by any stretch of the imagination, but you know what?  Watching one of my favorite shows while going for a walk helped to push me well past my 15 minute goal.  Instead, I watched the entire show, and walked the entire time.

So how’d I do?  In the 64 minutes that I was on the treadmill, I walked just over a 5K – 3.27 miles.  I consider that a win.  

Ultimately, I’d like to run, and last time I was at the gym I completed W1D1 of the Couch-to-5K program.  However, with my limited core strength and stability, I think it will be best if I take it slow, and stick to walking for a little bit longer.
