Flag Raising, National Anthem and Ribbon Cutting Mark Grand Opening
Schenectady, N.Y., 2014-5-19 — /EPR Retail News/ — On Sunday morning, the American Legion raised the American Flag to the National Anthem performed by Warrensburg High School Band in celebration of the grand opening of the newest Price Chopper Supermarket located at 16 Lake George Plaza Road in Lake George, N.Y.
Price Chopper Executive Chairman of the Board Neil Golub, President and CEO Jerry Golub, Store Manager Bryan LaLone and other company officials were joined by Dennis Dickinson, the town supervisor for the town of Lake George and Kevin Geraghty, the town supervisor for the town of Warrensburg and shoppers for a ribbon-cutting ceremony.
“We are so pleased to offer a brand-new, state-of-the-art supermarket here in the Lake George-Warrensburg area,” 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 appreciate the opportunity to become a valued neighbor by helping to nourish the community around us, both literally and figuratively,” he added.
Twenty-five full-time and 98 part-time jobs were created because of this new 30,500-square-foot Price Chopper located just off Northway Exit 23, between the towns of Lake George and Warrensburg.
Price Chopper’s traditional preview party was held at the store from 4:00 to 5:30 p.m. on Saturday evening and raised monetary donations, matched in full by Price Chopper and by up to $2,500 from the real estate developer, Vanguard-Fine, LLC. The proceeds were divided amongst the evening’s beneficiaries — North Country Ministry, the Warrensburg Volunteer Fire Company and Warrensburg Youth Sports Programs. Attendees were treated to hot and cold buffet stations and an opportunity to enter a drawing for a $250 Price Chopper gift card.
