About AJS Supermarkets
AJS Supermarkets has a long history with Wakefern/ShopRite. Anton Smutko and his brother Frank opened Hilltop Supermarkets in 1953 -- the same year they joined Wakefern. In 1989, the brothers sold their stores to another ShopRite owner. In 1999, Anton’s son, Tony re-entered the family business, with the purchase of ShopRite of Hillside, New Jersey. Today, Tony’s wife, Sherry and their children TJ, Vicki and Ryan work with him at ShopRite, ensuring that the family’s supermarket legacy will continue.
