Price Chopper Boards Bresee’s Rudolph

Bresee’s Rudolph Ride

Two weeks ago, Greg Noonan of Cherry Valley was preparing to go to Florida for three weeks and couldn’t bear to leave his reindeer in the barn during his vacation. So, on a shopping trip to Cooperstown’s Price Chopper, he asked if store manager Kurt Krajewski would be willing to host the animal for the Holidays. Krajewski was more than pleased to do so, for it was none other than the original  Rudolph the Red Nosed Reindeer ride from the former Bresee’s Department Store.  “He wanted kids to enjoy it.” said Krajewski. “Lots of customers have been coming in and taking pictures and reminiscing about riding on it.” The ride will be at Price Chopper through New Year’s, when Noonan returns. While the ride still works, rides are not currently offered. But, don’t let that stop you from getting up close and personal with this piece of local holiday  history! (Ian Austin/ AllOTSEGO.com)

COOPERSTOWN – With the new self-checkout lanes being installed at the Cooperstown Price Chopper, the supermarket just gave new meaning to the phrase “grab-and-go.”

“Our customers who are just stopping in for a handful of items are more inclined towards self-checkout,” said Mona Golub, spokesperson for Price Chopper.  “By providing these, as well as full-service lines, we can provide better service.”

Five self-checkout lanes are due in Cooperstown by the end of the week, a first for the village.
