Do not even blame the very few p%c employees chopper took on! AND I DO MEAN FEW!!! Myself and the key people that you didn't hire think this is funny as hell! As for myself I don't even go into your damn stores and my family doesn't ether! I support people who live here! not someone who comes here to work!

I think it's funny that P&C was union and now Price chopper isn't but thier prices are just as high when it was union labor. So don't blame Unions for high prices....it's Corparate greed! Wake up everybody!!

What's funny is the fact people think working at a grocery store is good career to pursue.

Good for you....Glad to hear it....I hate to see people lose their jobs, especially in this economy. I actually find nothing funny about it in the least, that was purely sarcasm.

The only ones that didn't shit on the employees are the customers! Alot of them knew us by name and us them! I could tell you of the stupid ideas the educated morons came up with, but I don't have time! Price chopper could have had very good people, But they decided to bring in people to replace them! Then ran their mouths off to customers that if they kept us we planned to bring in the union! WRONG we just wanted a job! union or not Your loss chopper!!! Most everyone turned in applications also! just incase they lie about that too! As for our store 5 out of 70 they kept and other stores were the same! NOT MANY IS IT!! Tell us about how they care about the folks they want as customers! what a joke

I don't know what people are expecting to pay for groceries but I think Price Chopper has great sales and their prices are not that bad.

Whats wrong with making a career out of price chopper. Most of the employees that aren't still ig high school make more than most people in this community. You don't even want to know how much the store managers make lol. And there were reasons for pc not hiring p&c employees, stop being such sour pusses. Sadly it's one of the nicer things this town has. It also gives a lot more jobs to our town, why would anyone want it to leave. Not like Amything else would want to take it's place.
