A C-Town supermarket in New Rochelle, New York.
|Headquarters||White Plains, New York, United States|
C-Town was founded in 1975. C-Town uses economies of scale so its small member stores can pool their resources for purchasing and advertising. C-Town tends to open supermarkets in locations that suburban stores have abandoned. C-Town Supermarkets tend to depend on more customers who are pedestrians and fewer who drive, as shown by their smaller parking lots.
There are approximately 200 stores in Connecticut, Massachusetts, New Jersey, New York, and Pennsylvania. C-Town is the fifth-largest food retailer in the New York City metropolitan area. C-Town is supplied by Krasdale Foods; many products sold in C-Town stores are labeled Krasdale Foods (Krasdale also is a supplier for the smaller Bravo supermarket chain). Marketing and advertising for C-Town are handled by Alpha-I Marketing Corp.
