Flag Raising, National Anthem and Ribbon Cutting Mark Grand Opening
Schenectady, N.Y., 2014-4-22 — /EPR Retail News/ — On Tuesday morning, the American Legion raised the American Flag to the National Anthem performed by the Little Falls High School choir in celebration of the grand opening of the newest Price Chopper Supermarket located at 555 East Main Street in Little Falls, N.Y.
Price Chopper Executive Chairman of the Board Neil Golub, President and CEO Jerry Golub, Store Manager William Blunt and other company officials were joined by New York State Senator James L. Seward, 51st District, New York State Assemblyman Marc Butler, 118th District and the City of Little Falls Mayor Robert J. Peters, Sr. and shoppers for a ribbon-cutting ceremony.
“We are so pleased to offer a brand-new, state-of-the-art supermarket here in Little Falls,” said Jerry Golub. As a homegrown business, we are proud of our small town roots and look forward to providing Price Chopper quality, value and customer service to all who enter our doors. And we relish the opportunity to become a valued neighbor by supporting and nourishing the community around us,” he added.
More than 20 full-time and 90 part-time jobs were created because of this sleek 30,500-square-foot, environmentally green Price Chopper.
Price Chopper’s traditional preview party was held at the store from 5:30 to 7 p.m. on Monday evening and raised monetary donations, matched in full by Price Chopper and by $1,500 from the project developer, The Berke Family. The proceeds were divided amongst the evening’s beneficiaries — Catholic Charities of Herkimer County, the Little Falls Family YMCA and the Little Falls Little League. Attendees were treated to hot and cold buffet stations and an opportunity to enter a drawing for a $250 Price Chopper gift card.
