Penn Traffic plans to close 53 stores, including Norwich P&C

SYRACUSE, N.Y. (AP) — The Penn Traffic Co. has told New York officials it expects to close dozens of supermarkets in upstate New York and lay off more than 4,000 employees.



The Syracuse-based supermarket operator’s layoff notice filed with the state Labor Department says it will close 53 P&C and Quality Markets in central and western New York by Feb. 15. The affected stores and warehouses, located from the state’s southwest corner to the Canadian border in the north, employ 4,132 people.

In Norwich, the P&C Supermarket at 54 East Main St. employs 64 union and 2 non-union workers, the filing states. The supermarket has operated in Norwich since April of 2006, when it replaced Tops Friendly Markets.
