Shop Rite closes in Lakewood, disappointing shoppers

The closing of one supermarket in Lakewood has upset some members of the Jewish community.



The Shop Rite in town closed Tuesday and is moving a few miles away to Howell.



Some members of Lakewood's Orthodox Jewish community say they will miss the Kosher Experience section of the supermarket, which carried a wide variety of kosher meats.



The Howell location will not feature the Kosher Experience.



A spokesperson for Shop Rite says shoppers who keep kosher can order kosher groceries online from Shop Rite's Neptune location, which offers home delivery.
