SOUTH PASSAIC, N.J. -- The North Jersey Chamber of Commerce is uncorking a fun community event by hosting a wine tasting and networking mixer on Tuesday, Nov. 22, at the new ShopRite Wine & Spirits in Clifton.
The North Jersey Chamber of Commerce (NJCC) has partnered with RSMG Business Alliance to bring together New Jersey entrepreneurs, businesses and residents at the 15,000 sq. ft. liquor store on Paulison Avenue.
"We have hosted this kind of event multiple times and it has always been a huge success," said Brian Tangora, President of the North Jersey Chamber of Commerce. "This is the first time we will be at this venue, so it should be fun for everyone."
ShopRite Wines & Spirits, which opened in July 2016, will offer customers thousands of beer and spirit selections in addition to a fine wine room, an education center where visitors can take wine or liquor classes and a sizable humidor containing numerous types of cigars.
The store will also boast a gift shop where customers can purchase customized baskets or items such as wine bottles etched with personalized messages for holidays or milestone celebrations.
"We are very excited to welcome a new business to North Jersey, especially one that so many people can get excited about," said Tangora.
The refurbishing of the former Pathmark grocery was a challenging process for Rafael Cuellar, owner of the ShopRite supermarket in Passaic and the new ShopRite Wine & Spirits in Clifton. A substantial amount of money was poured into the new business to clean up the facility and construct the state-of-the-art building.
The North Jersey Chamber of Commerce wine tasting and networking mixer will feature an array of wine and food catered by ShopRite and an opportunity to build working relationships. For more information about the mixer or other events hosted by NJCC, visit their website.
