ShopRite Senior Discount Policy: Age Restrictions & More Explained

Short Answer: Many ShopRite locations offer some sort of senior discount. Since ShopRite is a supermarket cooperative and each store is individually owned and operated, the exact discount terms vary by location. Common discount amounts are around 5% off on a certain day of the week. For more details about ShopRite’s senior discount policy, see below.

ShopRite Senior Citizen Discount Policy

ShopRite grocery stores are part of a cooperative — this means that its more than 50 members individually own and operate supermarkets under the ShopRite banner throughout Connecticut, Delaware, Maryland, New Jersey, New York, and Pennsylvania. We contacted ShopRite stores in several states for more information about their senior discount policies. About 70% of the stores we contacted confirmed that they offer a senior discount.

However, since store policies are up to individual owners, the terms of the discount will vary by location. Examples of discount policies we found include:

  • A ShopRite store in Connecticut told us it deducts 5% on Tuesdays for seniors age 55 and up.
  • A ShopRite store in Maryland also offered 5% off for seniors on Tuesdays, but only for purchases up to $50.
  • A ShopRite in New York told us that the 5% senior discount is available on Wednesdays, for seniors aged 62 and older.

Since the discount amount and age restrictions vary by store, it’s best to contact a ShopRite location for the exact details of its senior discount policy.
