ROTTERDAM, N.Y. (NEWS10) – Officials say 47 employees were laid off Tuesday from Price Choppers Headquarters in Rotterdam.
Mona Golub, the Price Chopper spokesperson tells NEWS10 that the employees range from company vice presidents to clerical. Basically they are outsourcing some administrative duties.
The layoffs do not affect any stores or distribution centers. The out of work folks will receive one week severance for each year of service, including benefits.
Price Chopper has also hired an outplacement service to help the laid off people find jobs.
The number of store employees has grown by more than 700 at the four supermarkets that have already been converted to the Market 32 format. They say these layoffs will help make PC more lean an operation that allows more investment in their stores.
