Price Chopper cuts into Conn. market with new store

SCHENECTADY, N.Y. Price Chopper has plans to open a new store in Middletown, Conn., the family-owned supermarket chain announced last week.

The 60,00- sq.-ft. supermarket pharmacy will be the eighth in Connecticut and the 120th in New England when it opens this summer, the company said.

“The city is extremely pleased to welcome Price Chopper to our community,” Middletown mayor Sebastian Giuliano said in a statement. “Not only are they great corporate citizens, but they also bring a reputation for quality products at great prices.”

The company plans to “meet or exceed” the U.S. Green Building Council LEED standards to minimize the store’s effects on the local environment and natural resources.
