ShopRite in Wyckoff Gets Green Light from Courts


The Bergen County Superior Court’s Appellate Division has ruled in favor of Inserra Supermarkets’ proposed ShopRite of Wyckoff at the corner of Greenwood and Wyckoff Avenues. In a decision issued last Thursday, the Appellate Division unanimously affirmed lower court rulings, dismissing the final three counts in a 14-count objection filed by competitor Stop & Shop.

“The entire Inserra Supermarkets family is delighted to finally be that much closer to bringing a state-of-the-art ShopRite to the residents of Wyckoff and the surrounding communities,” said Lawrence Inserra, Jr., chairman and CEO of Inserra Supermarkets.

Inserra Supermarkets had earned the unanimous approval of the Township of Wyckoff’s Planning Board in February of 2013 following 38 public meetings over a three-year period. However, on-going litigation from Stop & Shop has stalled construction and breaking ground on the proposed ShopRite of Wyckoff. Stop & Shop’s appeals of the approvals by the Bergen County Planning Board are still pending.


The family-owned grocery chain owns and operates 22 ShopRite stores in New Jersey and New York – Emerson, Fair Lawn, Hackensack, Hillsdale, Lodi, Lyndhurst, New Milford, Northvale, North Bergen, Palisades Park, Ramsey, Wallington, and Wayne to name a few. Inserra is targeting a December of 2017 opening of the 62k+ square-foot store.
