Big M closes 12/22 it is now 2 months later 2/22 and not much happening.
Does anybody know why or what is going on.
At this rate it will be quite a while before we have a store.
I mean we have been hearing the name price Chopper for 2 years now are they interested or not?

Well, they say that actions speak louder than words. There have been few words, and over two months now virtually no action.

While there has been no action on the Price Chopper, simultaneously there has been plenty of action to try to shut down the Co-op. Coincidence?

Well lets see, the business that were adjacent to the big M have are either vacating or have moved down to the store fronts under CVS.Smoker Friendly and the Auto Parts store have moved. But until the building is checked and certified that asbestos and other nasties are negated then the business of salvage will begin then demolition. It seems that some people just cant wait for christmas to open thier presents!!

They are gutting the copper and metal out of the Big M on a daily basis.

National Grid cut the power lines a couple weeks ago and they lay rolled up against the building.

Wizard is right about the asbestos having to be taken out before the building can be demo'd.

Thats right,we wouldnt want another potential Asbestos Mountain. Unless you want to open a Theme Park and call it The Asbestos Mountain theme park. Think Disney would be interested?

One of the few funny moments in the saga of Peters versus Little Falls was the night you stood up in that meeting and told those MSFers that they should build a water park at Shoppers Square. Classic.

I'm very much looking forward to it. I was just at the price chopper in palintine and was amazed at what kind of selection they had for being on the smaller side. If that's what the one in little falls will be like I will be very happy and actually shop there. I compared it to the big that used to be here and price chopper blows them out of the water

Yessir, the palintine store is great. I just hope that the new Price Chopper is as nice. And it will be if it isnt run by a corporation that rhymes with Boller Deneral.

Everyone knows that Main Street First (and Jeff Gressler) brought us the new Price Chopper downtown. Main Street First did the studies, got the grants and brought the building owner and the Price Chopper people together at the bargaining table. Main Street First even paid for the architect! Duh!

But you are correct that Mayor Peters tried to close the Big M, just like he is trying to use tax-payer money to close so many other locally-owned businesses because he prefers national chain stores owned by big corporations. Peters thinks that's okay, and says that the nice owners of Big M can get a job bagging groceries at the Price Chopper, and the nice owners of White Rose can get a job working the drive-thru window at Dunkin Donuts. It's all the same to Mayor Peters.

The new Price Chopper located on Main Street will be very good for local businesses. That is why we are so grateful to MSF for doing all that hard work to make it happen! Thank God somebody around here is looking out for the economy of our City while the mayor is busy tilting at windmills and the YMCA.

I think maybe the other poster was referring to the recent scheme by Peters to offer tax incentives replace White Rose with a Dunking Donuts, which made Ron pout real bad.

It's not just bus-riders that pay. That gas I put in my gas tank to drive to Hannaford ain't free, ya know.

Hey, MSF! Could you please make the Price Chopper build a little faster? K thx bye.

We should be thankful that Main Street First is making this new Price Chopper possible.

Only a little over one more year. My doomsday preps should just be running out by then. May have to eat a few squirrels and drink some toilet water. But not too much.
