retail news in context, analysis with attitude

The Albany Business Review reports that as Golub Corporation transitions its Price Chopper stores to its new Market 32 format, it will no longer sell tobacco products.

CEO Jerry Golub tells the paper that "cigarettes do not fit into the health-conscious identity that his company is building as it invests $300 million to rebrand itself, moving from the Price Chopper name to Market 32."
KC's View:
Good for them.

By the way, I've been looking at the early reviews for Market 32, and they've been extremely encouraging. I'm looking forward to driving up to see these new stores when I get back to the east coast.
