Hudson Valley residents are getting frustrated as they wait for a state-of-the-art supermarket that will bring around 200 jobs to open.
For all the news that the Hudson Valley is sharing make sure to follow Hudson Valley Post on Facebook, download the Hudson Valley Post Mobile App and sign up for the Hudson Valley Post Newsletter.
In May, ShopRite of North Poughkeepsie hinted at an opening and suggested interested people follow the supermarket's official Facebook page as they "prepare to open."
On May 24, ShopRite of North Poughkeepsie announced they "can't wait" to open. While an official opening date wasn't announced, officials said the supermarket will open "very soon."
Nearly four months have passed and the supermarket still has not opened. The name has been changed on Facebook to "ShopRite of Poughkeepsie-Fairview."
ShopRite of North Poughkeepsie will be a full-service, state-of-the-art supermarket located at Hudson Heritage, at the site of a former state psychiatric facility on Route 9 across from Marist College. Construction is ongoing at the site.
Hudson Valley Post has reached out multiple times to ShopRite officials for comment on the delayed opening and asked for an opening date but we have yet to get a response. Some social media rumors state the ShopRite will open this fall. Hudson Valley Post hasn't been able to confirm that rumor.
New posts appear on the Facebook page almost daily, but without mentioning an opening date. The 64,000-square-foot supermarket is expected to add more than 200 jobs, officials say.
Developers started clearing the site at the former Hudson River State Hospital campus, which operated in the Town of Poughkeepsie from 1873 until its closure in the early 2000s, in 2019.
