Posted Nov. 11, 2014

The Golub Corporation today unveiled a new banner for its stores – Market 32 – and promised the new brand would change food shopping for its customers by modernizing its stores and offering new services and products. Market 32 stores will begin rolling out across the chain’s six-state footprint this spring.

“Market 32 represents the next leap forward for our company. We have evolved from the Public Service Market to Central Market to Price Chopper by responding to customers’ changing needs over time and Market 32 is the next natural progression for us,” said Neil Golub, Price Chopper’s executive chairman of the board. “Early learnings gleaned from our Market Bistro concept store have put our next generation in an excellent position to make this move today.”

Initially, three Price Chopper stores are being converted into Market 32 stores: Shopper’s World in Clifton Park, N.Y.; Wilton, N.Y.; and Pittsfield, Mass. The first “ground up” Market 32 will be built in Sutton, Mass. beginning on November 12, 2014. A second wave of conversions will begin over the next 18 months and encompass another 10 to 15 stores. More than half of the 135-store chain will be converted within five years. In total, the investment in this phase of the evolution will be more than $300 million.
