ShopRite of Greater Morristown
Greater Morristown Featured Story
Village and P&G partnered for the Care Beyond Hair road show. This event focused around cancer awareness and getting our customers actively involved in making a difference. Customers and associates with at least eight inches of non-colored hair had the opportunity to have it cut to be used to make wigs for people who are battling cancer. In addition, for every participant who donated their hair, P&G donated $50 to the Beautiful Lengths Foundation, which creates wigs for cancer patients.
ShopRite of Greater Morristown was the first of five Village stores to participate in the road show, with Tiki Barber making a guest appearance at the kick-off event. He spoke about his mother’s perspective about being a cancer survivor and the importance of the Care Beyond Hair initiative. Six customers participated by getting their hair cut in what was a truly inspirational day.

Village Super Market Supports Superhero Half Marathon
The ShopRite of Greater Morristown had the opportunity to sponsor the Superhero Half Marathon in Morristown. The store provided oranges and apples as a healthy refuel for runners at the finish line. Race participants and spectators had the opportunity to visit the Village photo booth for some fun “superhero” photos and Scrunchy, the ShopRite mascot, cheered on the runners, many dressed as their favorite superhero!” to “Race participants and spectators had the opportunity to visit the Village photo booth for some fun “superhero” photos.
