I am grateful that New York has an Attorney General like Eric Schneiderman who is looking out for the little guy.

Shame on you Golub family Price Chopper.

I only get the special that I need, otherwise I don't shop at Price Chopper.
The gas thing is another rip off..I have a 15 gallon tank and can only put 12 or so gallons in my tank so I either bring a gas container and fill it or just loose it...can't carry it over......

As a former employee of Price Chopper and a person who refuses to shops there...Let me tell you how CROOKED Price Chopper is!!!! Cheap, cheap, cheap, cheap.....Of course, the only thing they're not cheap with is their prices!!!!! Their buy one get one free deal is bogus. The item that you buy is ALWAYS as much as two items anywhere else!!!!

Hannaford has started to get their prices from Golub! We need more Shop-Rites around here so we're not handcuffed by these crooks that are killing us with their high food prices and deceptive deals. The biggest being the save money on your gas bull crap!!!!!
