Klein’s ShopRite of Maryland

About Klein’s ShopRite of Maryland
In 1925, Maurice and Sara Klein opened a small general store on Main Street in the rural village of Fallston, Maryland. In 1949, Maurice, Sara and their son Ralph purchased a general store at the old village crossroads in Forest Hill, commencing business as “Maurice Klein and Son.” Thirty years later, Ralph, his wife Shirley and their sons Andrew, Michael and Howard relocated “Klein’s” to a modern supermarket at 2101 Rockspring Road.  Five other Harford County stores and three locations in Baltimore County have opened since 1979.

All stores are modern, full-service supermarkets, featuring a full assortment of grocery and fresh perishable departments, as well as full-service pharmacies. A fourth-generation of Klein family members (Marshall, Sarah, Stephen and Jacob Klein) are now actively engaged in day-to-day operations.

In October, 2008, Klein’s Family Markets joined Wakefern Food Corp., the retail merchandising and distribution company that supplies and supports ShopRite, becoming the 45th member of the nation’s largest retailer-owned cooperative.

Beginning in March, 2009, all Klein’s Family Markets stores transitioned to the ShopRite banner. Klein’s ShopRite of Maryland provides full- and part-time employment to more than 900 associates. The company also takes special pride in its “zero-accident” culture, on-the-job safety record, and one of the industry’s lowest worker’s compensation insurance rates.

Community Outreach
Klein’s ShopRite of Maryland supports local education through the Ralph and Shirley Klein Foundation School Grant, a $40,000 annual grant administered through the Board of Education. Also, Klein’s Family Markets and the Ralph and Shirley Klein Foundation provide direct support to not-for-profit organizations throughout Harford and Northern Baltimore County. Klein’s ShopRites are active participants in ShopRite’s Partners in Caring Program, and annually provide more than $150,000 in direct support to community-based organizations; a complete list of donation recipients is posted at each store.

The Klein’s ShopRite of Maryland Charitable Fund Small Grants Program (SGP) allows nonprofits from Harford County, Baltimore County and Baltimore City – where our customers and employees live and work – to apply for a grant of up to $10,000 for one year. Click here to learn more about the grant application process.
