Due to the Coronavirus pandemic, all Price Chopper stores will open at 7 AM and will shut down at 10 PM. The same timings will be followed for all days of the week. These shortened working hours will allow employees to sanitize the store premises thoroughly. Moreover, shorter working hours will also limit human to human contact and will prevent the spread of Coronavirus.
