ShopRite shoppers and other Baltimore locals filled an MTA bus full of food and other non-perishable items faster than any year before, according to Mix 106.5 DJ Jon Boesche. Boesche and fellow radio personality Maria Dennis were on hand at ShopRite Saturday evening thanking generous shoppers for donating to the 19th annual Stuff A Bus food drive for the Maryland Food Bank. “I haven’t seen anything that denotes a recession or hard times. This bus has filled up quicker than any years past,” Boesche said, participating in his sixth Stuff A Bus event. He was cut off by a woman wanting to say hello after contributing an entire grocery cart full of just-bought food items. The woman handed six yellow bags to two Calvert Hall student-volunteers …

For those who remember when Gwynn Oak Junction was one of northwest Baltimore’s most bustling commercial hubs, a return over the weekend would have been an eye-opener—and a heart-breaker. They set the stage Saturday for a new Class A supermarket along Liberty Heights Avenue at Gwynn Oak Junction, in the heart of the Howard Park neighborhood, and everybody was looking to take a bow.

ShopRite chain intends to take over two Superfresh stores in Maryland.
Employees at the Superfresh grocery store in Timonium will have no job security in the proposed conversion of the site to a new ShopRite location, according to court documents filed this week in a New York bankruptcy court. About 100 employees at the store will only be offered new jobs with ShopRite at the “sole discretion” of the new owners, according to a proposed sale agreement filed in the court by Superfresh’s parent company. “Unfortunately, that’s true. We’re trying hard to convince ShopRite to hire as many people as possible, but they are under no obligation to hire anybody. And they have told us they will not be able to take everybody,” said Tim Goins, executive vice president of the local labor union representing the workers. The…
