If a particular land deal goes through, Clifton Park could see yet another supermarket in town. This time, Shop Rite is looking to build on land that the Shenendehowa school district wants to sell. The land sale has to be approved by the voters in the Shen school district. Currently, it's about 35 acres of wooded area located behind Shatekon Elementary.
Clifton Park has two Price Choppers and a Hannaford while next door in Halfmoon, there's an Aldi and Walmart. After the East Greenbush store is built, this would be the sixth Shop Rite in the Albany area.
The vote takes place on April 4th.
