As a company founded by a Russian Jewish immigrant, whose eldest son would come to establish and chair the local hometown Human Rights Commission, diversity, equity and inclusion are in our roots. Recognizing that Price Chopper/Market 32 exists because of and for our extended family of teammates and guests, we endeavor to create a culture that celebrates all lifestyles, customs and traditions as it embraces the many multi-faceted communities we serve. We proudly celebrate Pride Month and the efforts of those working to achieve equal justice and opportunity for LGBTQ Americans.
