The decision has been made to close the North Troy Price Chopper supermarket at 865 2nd avenue in Lansingburgh.

According to the article on www.cbs6albany.com the supermarket was closing due to economic reasons and continued flooding in their parking lot. Troy city councilman Jim Gulli says he was hoping that they could have salvaged the business by converting it into a market 32 that hoped to draw customers Waterford, Cohoes, and Green Island.

There were 72 employees at the North Troy location of Price Chopper and they have been offered positions at Price Chopper and Market 32 stores. The supermarket on 2nd Avenue will be permanently closed on Saturday, February 29.

It's an unfortunate closing for the community. Not only does it limit shopping choices, but Troy has a proposed waterfront renovation project and this empty lot and building won't do a lot for this revitalization.

Troy City Councilman, Gulli will likely propose future options for the site and Lansingburgh’s waterfront Tuesday at 6:00 p.m. at the Lansingburgh veterans club.
