Village Super Market, Inc. engages in the retail sale of food and nonfood products. It operates through the ShopRite and Gourmet Garage bands. The company was founded by Nicholas Sumas and Perry Sumas in 1937 and is headquartered in Springfield, NJ.
Sales. Sales were $407,402 in the 13 weeks ended October 26, 2019, an increase of 1.5% compared to the 13 weeks ended October 27, 2018. Sales increased due to the acquisition of Gourmet Garage on June 24, 2019 and a 0.1% increase in same store sales. Same store sales increased due to continued sales growth in the Bronx, New York City store opened on June 28, 2018, recently remodeled or replaced stores and continued growth of ShopRite from Home including expansion to four additional stores. These increases were partially offset by the impact of two competitor store openings, decreased promotional spending in Maryland and reduced sales in our existing store in Stroudsburg, Pennsylvania leading up to its closure and the opening of a replacement store on November 1, 2019. The Company expects same store sales in fiscal 2020 to range from a 2.0% decrease to flat.
