A woman who was there in the morning when the trees were coming down asked the men doing the deed why this was happening. She was told it was because the trees obstructed the view of the stores from Route 9.
Two years ago, Price Chopper embarked on a $300 million rebranding campaign to ditch the name that focused on low prices and adopt a new one, Market 32. In the Albany Business Review, Jerry Golub, president and CEO of the Price Chopper chain, is quoted as saying they wanted a name that reflected "the type of shopping experience our customers are looking for now and in the future." Shopping at a store with a parking lot denuded of its original landscaping hardly seems like the shopping experience anyone would want.
