Trying to buy flowers at Price Chopper in Bristol, CT. Because of broken liquid soap on the floor, I fall and couldn’t breathe from pain. None of the “associates” tried to help me get up. Thanks to some customers after 15 min, I pulled myself together and filled out a report as the procedure goes. They send it to the headquarters and told me to wait. I received a letter from them that wanted more details and the hospital report, that I had to go because my whole spine moved from me falling on my bottom, and I stayed two weeks on painkillers. Long story short, after six months of waiting and the hospital wanted me to pay the bill, I called Price Chopper and they had the guts to tell me that the floor wasn’t dirty, no one witnessed the fall although the store’s shift manager was there and the store is not reliable for what happened. They don’t want to release the report and told me that do whatever you want, we don’t care. No security cameras can be released and no report, store policy…. I have never felt more insulted and abused from such people (Chris **). I am not trying to sue and make money, I just wanted them to pay the hospital bill because I have no insurance and I am stuck with 1500 $ to pay… Shame on Price Chopper and the who represent them…! Shame, shame, shame.
Upstate NY’s “Price Chopper” ranked worst place to work in United States for 2016
The small grocery chain Price Chopper, or Market 32 as they may be called after a big budget name renovation, is now ranked the worst place to work in the United States by the independent journals.
This isn’t the Price Chopper located in Kansas, but the one in Albany NY.
Price Chopper Grocery, going through a remodel and rebranding, and for good reason. Consumer reports has just rated the Schenectady NY grocery store as one of the worst in the United States.
The company may be rebranding as an effort to conceal their poor name, calling themselves the generic “Market 32”
This comes as bad news for the struggle upstate New York region, which has been ranked worst place to live in the United States recently:
Insiders hope the change is more than cosmetic:
I used to go to the Price Chopper at 1706 Western Ave. As of today, I no longer do and I was a customer there for 12 years. If you are looking for a pharmacy, their staff is excellent. That was my main reason for going there. I also would shop there while waiting for my prescriptions. The store constantly miss prices items in their favor so you have to watch them closely and remember prices.
The worst experience of all is the deli. As crowded as it gets today, over a half dozen customers working, there was one kid stuck there trying to keep up with the crowd. They do this all the time. No one wants to be out front slicing coldcuts so they stay in the back with their eyes closed. Many people go there because it is a smaller store and easier to get around. It’s one of their gold mines. It gets very busy. Today I just had it. Everyone was grumbling, waiting to be served, but no one had the balls to say anything except me. I left my stuff there; went and got my prescriptions back and left never to return again. It was better than screaming my head off in frustration and built up anger over the constant lousy treatment.
Yes, they rectify the situation when there is a mistake but do you want to go home and then have to go back? It is a waste of time and gas. If they did things right in the first place, the returns wouldn’t be necessary but they’d prefer to make their money screwing people. Avoid this place unless you just want to deal with the pharmacy.

A spokesman for Price Chopper today strongly defending the meat distributor linked to E. coli deaths, saying the upstate company goes “above and beyond” to insure the safety of its meat.
Fairbank Farms of Ashville, near Jamestown, has been forced to recall its meat three times in the last three years and a fourth time in 2002. The latest recall, issued Saturday, has been linked to the death of an unidentified Albany County resident and a person in New Hampshire.
Fairbank supplies Price Chopper and other grocery chains. Price Chopper spokeswoman Mona Golub today said the Rotterdam-based grocery chain remains confident that Fairbank is a quality distributor.
Golub said Price Chopper will continue to sell Fairbank ground beef.
“This is not a supplier that’s questionable,” Golub said. “This is a reliable supplier that is doing the right thing and is reaching for higher (standards) than most manufacturers and suppliers would consider.”
Employees not happy:
The only pro was the great store manager we had until they fired him
We saw a bunch of managers come through and you finally found one who made the store better and he was good to the employees and you fired him because he stood up for his self.
The customers miss him to.
Advice to Management
You have all these bad managers especially all the corporate ones that never have nothing nice to say and treat you bad and then you go and fire a good manager. Makes it hard to want to go to work
