Schenectady will be closing one of its grocery stores today, Wednesday, September 14th to make way for another one in Rotterdam that will open tomorrow, Thursday, September 15th. It has been a long time coming and residents are excited.
It is the end of an era for a popular Italian deli in Schenectady. La Gioia has been a staple in the Goose Hill neighborhood for over three decades and it will close its doors this weekend. As this specialty store closes a new Italian deli will be opening soon just two miles away.

In my opinion and many throughout the Capital Region, there was one premier burger joint and they just announced they will be closing their doors soon. As much as this news stings, there is a glimmer of hope that they will resurface again when the location is right.
