North Adams Price Chopper Closing
The Price Chopper supermarket in North Adams will close at the end of February. The store, which opened in 1959, employs 57 people.Mona Golub of The Golub Corporation, which owns and operates more than 130 Price Chopper and Market 32 grocery stores in six states, made the announcement Monday. She says closure was the appropriate action after reviewing the store’s financial viability.
“What was essentially a good location back in 1959 and an appropriate size for a supermarket back then is no longer,” said Golub.
Golub says the store employs 15 full-time and 42 part-time workers. She does not know what will happen to the building on State Road. Golub adds there are no plans to close any of its other stores at this time.
