The family-owned Golub Corp. owns and operates 111 Price Chopper grocery stores in New York, Vermont, Connecticut, Pennsylvania, Massachusetts, and New Hampshire. Golub employs more than 23,000 associates, who collectively own 55 percent of the company's privately held stock.
In other Price Chopper news, Prospect Heights, Ill.-based HSBC Bank has joined with Price Chopper to solve the problem of HSBC Bank debit cards being rejected at the retailer's checkouts, according to a published report. The reason for this, according to HSBC officials, is that the bank's computer system isn't in alignment with Price Chopper's system, so the grocer's cash registers won't take the cards' PINs. The problem should be fixed in a month's time, said HSBC, which recommended that meanwhile its debit card users could use them at Price Chopper by performing credit card transactions, which don't require the PIN to be used, or withdrawing money from in-store cash machines.
