The Littlest ShopRite features new checkout lanes and shopping baskets, and also now provides shopping lists to help children plan menus and quick response (QR) codes with detailed nutritional information for parents. Racks with kid-friendly items such as magazines and flowers round out the exhibit.

“Our ShopRite Supermarket was originally created to encourage social skill development and foster play based learning,” said Lynn McMaster, interim president and chief executive officer of Please Touch Museum. “Today’s young visitors will have more opportunities to explore and practice pre-literacy and math concepts or identifying colors and shapes all while demonstrating choice and responsibility.”

“For decades, children from across the country have enjoyed this amazing museum,” said Orien Reid, a Partners in Caring spokesperson. “We are thrilled to be able to enhance this beloved area and to expand the opportunities for children to reap the educational benefits of this terrific space.”
