Renovated Shoppers has a generous reopening

November 23, 2008

After months of construction and improvements, a major Annapolis grocery store welcomed guests and customers recently to its renovated store on Solomon's Island Road.

The Shoppers Food & Pharmacy, across from Annapolis Towne Centre, greeted more than 100 guests, including politicians and community leaders, last weekend and presented more than 60 area schools and houses of worship with gift cards worth more than $18,000. It also presented free turkeys Saturday to the first 500 shoppers.

"We have worked hard to get this store open in time for the holidays, and we are pleased that our prototype store is located right here in Annapolis," Shoppers president Dick Bergman said.

The original store on the same site, at Forest Drive and Solomons Island Road, opened in 1984 as Shoppers Food Warehouse.
