Howard Park supermarket breaks ground

Baltimore and Maryland elected officials, led by Mayor Stephanie Rawlings-Blake, joined business leaders, Northwest Baltimore community representatives and officials of Klein’s ShopRite of Maryland at a groundbreaking ceremony Tuesday for the long-awaited ShopRite of Howard Park supermarket.

The 68,000-square-foot, full-service supermarket will include a pharmacy, a health suite staffed by a nurse practitioner, a bakery, an extensive seafood section and a separate halal meat section for Islamic practitioners.

A wide selection of international foods, including produce, meat and grocery items, will also be available.

The $20 million project with over 200 parking spaces is expected to be completed by April 2014.
