What is a micro fulfillment center, you ask? Only the biggest trend in the business of retail food stores.

Although small, as the name implies, these warehouses are well equipped to autonomously fulfill online orders – fast and efficiently. Pretty much the future of grocery shopping, according to experts.

A Facebook post says this new facility will contain a state-of-the-art automated storage and picking system to greatly increase ShopRite's shop from home capabilities.

Friday's job fair for Village Super Market ShopRite's Micro Fulfillment Center will be held at the center at 6805 Delilah Road, Egg Harbor Township.

Job applications can also be made at all the local ShopRite locations, including English Creek, Absecon, Galloway, Hammonton, Marmora, Rio Grande and Somers Point.

The employment posting recommends you bring two forms of ID if interested in a possible on-the-spot offer.  ShopRite says they also have positions available in all of their grocery stores.
