The coronavirus pandemic has altered life for many people and businesses, including the grocery industry. WAMC's Jim Levulis spoke with Mona Golub of the Golub Corporation, which operates about 130 Price Chopper, Market 32 and Market Bistro stores throughout the Northeast, about what the recent past has been like.

Price Chopper/Market 32 announced on March 19 that it is looking to hire more than 2,000 part-time or temporary part-time workers to handle the response to the pandemic. The company says the new hires are for most of the chain’s 132 stores in New York, Vermont, Connecticut, Pennsylvania, Massachusetts and New Hampshire. The company says it is expediting its hiring and training process.
