Career Site

Price Chopper is a chain of 136 grocery stores located in upstate NY, Pennsylvania, Vermont, New Hampshire, Massachusetts and Connecticut. It is operated by the Golub Corporation.

Price Chopper stores offer fresh meats, delis, bakeries and seafood. The chain also offers a free AdvantEdge card for customer discounts.

Price Chopper introduced Fuel Advantage in 2007 which lets customers save 10 cents per gallon of gas at Sunoco stores with every $100 purchased at Price Chopper stores.

Employees own 47% of shares in the company's stock. The company has revenues of more than $3 billion a year.

In 2013, the company opened a new flagship store in Latham, NY called Market Bistro featuring an expanded supermarket with fresh prepared foods, a cooking school and sit-down restaurant.

The company has been remodeling stores and renaming them Market 32 which include a new design. The look and feel of Market 32 is distinctively more modern than Price Chopper, though many of the differences are subtle. Marked by open space, a d├ęcor filled with soft earth tones and product-focused displays, murals and lighting, the brand emphasizes convenient, ready-to-eat foods; fresh, handcrafted, and locally grown, produced and manufactured products.

In April 2016, Price Chopper laid off 47 employees at its corporate headquarters to reduce costs.

History

Ben and Bill Golub opened the first Central Market in Schenectady, NY in 1933 offering one-stop shopping. The brothers expanded with more stores in upstate New York and one in Massachusetts. The name was changed from Central Markets to Price Chopper in 1973. The company has continued to grow with acquisitions and openings of new stores.
