Popular Saratoga PC Sits Near-Empty as its Final Day Approaches
The prices are chopped, but is there anything left inside the store?
A picture taken from inside a Saratoga County grocery store made the rounds on Wednesday showing mostly barren shelves and very little inventory, a much different version of the store that many may remember.
As it counts down to its final days before closing for good, most of the inside of the small Price Chopper on Railroad Avenue in Saratoga looks a lot like what many cleaning supplies or toilet paper isles looked like during the pandemic - desolate.
According to the Daily Gazette, the 10-year lease in the Saratoga Market Center will expire at the end of the month and the Golub Corporation who operate supermarkets under the Price Chopper, Market 32 and Market Bistro banners in New York, Connecticut, Massachusetts, Vermont, Pennsylvania and New Hampshire decided to shut the down for good at 6pm on Saturday April 16th.
Side note: A tiny little PC like this is exactly what a certain neighborhood near Lark Street in Albany could use.
Price Chopper's VP of public relations and consumer services Mona Golub said that all 35 employees have been offered comparable jobs at other stores.
Golub explained that they built a seventy-thousand square foot Price Chopper and turned it into a Market 32 just down the street on Route 50 a few years ago, and that foot traffic at the Railroad Street location suffered as a result.
On Twitter Wednesday, an image was posted by @SaratogaReport showing the insides of the mini-Price Chopper on Railroad Street in Saratoga.
