The Shop Rite that will be located in the Hudson Heritage Center, according to HVMag.com, is set to open in early 2021. ShopRite has started the application process now. They have even opened up a hiring center just south of the Planet Fitness on Route 9 in Hyde Park. Currently they are expecting to hire 200 people in both full and part-time positions.

The finished store will be approximately 65,000 square feet.

In addition to the Shop Rite (which is considered the anchor store) you can also, at this time, expect a "Smoothie King," a "Burger King," and a "Chipotle," all told there will be approximately 700 jobs created with this project.
