ShopRite - Airmont, NY

The ShopRite of Airmont, NY (also sometimes listed as Tallman, NY) is owned and operated by the Inserra family. It just had a grand-reopening after a fairly extensive aesthetic and physical renovation and it looks pretty great! Before we head in, let's take a look at this handy store directory so you can get an idea of the layout:

 You enter into produce/floral. Meat and dairy are along the back wall, with a large Kosher selection around that area (there's a very large Jewish population in this region of New York). Seafood and deli are in the last aisle, with bakery and prepared foods along the front end next to a small seating area.

This store's biggest limitation is its very low ceilings. It makes the space appear more cramped than it is, and there is little space for decor on the walls. I do, however, love the flooring.

Looking back towards the "entrance garden" as they call their floral department. Customer service is in an island along the front-end.

Notice how the ceiling gets higher over the grocery aisles. The produce aisle must have been an expansion at some point.

Looking along the back aisle from the back of the produce aisle.

Here you can see the left-side wall of the alcove in the back, looking towards the back wall of the store. I couldn't determine any logic to what foods were on the grocery shelves in that area.

Looking back out into the main sales area. Look carefully at the refrigerated cases. What's interesting about them is they are older open cases onto which custom doors have been added. That's a great idea and something a lot of stores should do!

Dairy is located along the back wall of the alcove.

The dairy section continues along the back wall of the store past the alcove. I think this sign is pretty cool!

Seafood, with very sharp all-new cases, is in the back corner.

The bakery is to the left in the above picture.

Deli/bakery in the front corner.

The ShopRite of Airmont is a very nice store, but not really that special. It's a standard ShopRite. No big surprises, good or bad, to be found here.
