Louisiana is Shop Rite Territory!
This whole area has a richly unique history. Many parishes---and
we are the only state in the Union to use that term for our smaller
administrative areas----have a multilingual, multicultural heritage,
especially here in the regions around the Shop Rite chain of stores.
The influence of our Spanish, French and African ancestry has made
Southern Louisiana an exceptional place to visit or live. Many
travel writers say that this region, with its dance, music and
unique blend of spirituality, is a must visit location for any US
visitor or native son.
Louisiana means “Land of Louis” and was named after King Louis X1V
of France by the explorer Sieur de La Salle. De La Salle in fact
claimed all the land that now encompasses Louisiana along with the
then largely unexplored territory stretching up to the French Colony
in Canada. Talk about a land grab!
This French heritage gave the Arcadians a place to head
to---Southern Louisiana-----when the English demanded they leave
their farms in Canada and relocate to the United States. The name
Arcadian was shortened to Cajun and you can still experience the
language and culture of those early settlers in Houma and other
areas of Southern Louisiana.
In fact St Martinsville is where the Evangeline oak of Longfellow’s
famous poem commemorating one of those settlers is located.
Shop Rite is Southern Louisiana through and through, from our service
to our tasty local delicacies, so come and visit when you are in the
