Seniors & Other High Risk Customers

Starting today, all Saker ShopRites have decided to have checkout registers specifically for high-risk and seniors age 60 and older. If you are not sure if your ShopRite is owned by the Saker family, you can view the list of Saker ShopRite stores here

Raincheck & Refunds

As of today, 3/17, ShopRite will no longer be offering Rainchecks (excluding CT stores which are required by law). And they will not be accepting returns.

Due to the current state of emergency, and to safeguard our associates and customers, we are unable to accept product returns at this time. Please make your purchases carefully, as all sales are final. To address limited product availability, we are not issuing rain checks* until further notice.

We appreciate your patience and understanding!

*Excludes Connecticut stores as required by law.
