The Spotlight followed up with Golub, who said the reason she had previously commented that Price Chopper did not owe any contractor money was because the date in which Price Chopper had to pay the contractors had not come and gone as of yet.
"There's no contract that we made that had a due date that was past," Golub said. "We happened to cut a check for this gentleman earlier than it was due."
When asked if they plan to proceed with the picket demonstration, Kronau said, "We'd like to have some sort of presence out there." Kronau said the contractors will picket for as long as they can afford to, or until WP Realty pays the money that the contractors are owed.
Contractors broke ground on the new Price Chopper, which took the place of the old Price Chopper at Colonie Plaza, about a year ago. It is touted for being Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design, or LEED, certified for its entirely green design. It is also the only Price Chopper in the area with an expanded Kosher foods section.
