Kansas City’s Price Chopper says it’s not us.
The area grocer on Wednesday said reports of it being acquired by industry giant Albertsons Companies are false.
“All Kansas City-based Price Choppers will remain under current local ownership,” the grocer said in a news release. “There are no current plans, nor intentions, to sell any stores.”
The confusion surfaced because a grocery store chain based in Schenectady, N.Y., that also operates under the Price Chopper name is reportedly in talks to be acquired by Albertsons.
Never miss a local story.
Price Chopper’s 51 area stores are locally owned by the Ball, Cosentino, McKeever and Queen families.
