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.
