Lack of References[edit]

This article has not reliable third party references. Personally I think it should be nominated for deletion. I will see what references I can find to help this article out or the Price Chopper may get the axe.--0pen$0urce (talk) 04:20, 11 July 2009 (UTC)

[edit]

I've found an image of the early 1970's Price Chopper logo with the axe chopping into the head of Liberty. I'm very bewildered as to how to upload the picture to the article. If anyone reading this knows HOW, I'd appreciate help & could send them the picture.Saxophobia 22:48, 10 September 2006 (UTC)

Should someone mention the scholarship programs that Price Chopper and the Golub Foundation offer?--lifeisharsh20 07:12, 6 March 2007 (UTC)

Fair use rationale for Image:Price chopper.jpg[edit]

Nuvola apps important.svg

Image:Price chopper.jpg is being used on this article. I notice the image page specifies that the image is being used under fair use but there is no explanation or rationale as to why its use in this Wikipedia article constitutes fair use. In addition to the boilerplate fair use template, you must also write out on the image description page a specific explanation or rationale for why using this image in each article is consistent with fair use.

Please go to the image description page and edit it to include a fair use rationale. Using one of the templates at Wikipedia:Fair use rationale guideline is an easy way to insure that your image is in compliance with Wikipedia policy, but remember that you must complete the template. Do not simply insert a blank template on an image page.

If there is other other fair use media, consider checking that you have specified the fair use rationale on the other images used on this page. Note that any fair use images uploaded after 4 May, 2006, and lacking such an explanation will be deleted one week after they have been uploaded, as described on criteria for speedy deletion. If you have any questions please ask them at the Media copyright questions page. Thank you.BetacommandBot 04:46, 6 June 2007 (UTC)

Liberty or Susan B. Anthony?[edit]

The article says that the early logo was with Liberty on the coin. When I was growing up I remember the big controversy that caused Price Chopper to choose to change the logo. It was considered to be "sexist" towards women (a woman getting an axe to the head...). This should be easy to find in newspaper articles somewhere...and I thought when I was little that the coin was a Susan B. Anthony coin and that was her head...does anyone have information backing this or information backing that it was truly supposed to be Liberty? Camelbinky (talk) 00:16, 1 November 2008 (UTC)

New information[edit]

According to the supermarket news website (this is the leading industry newspaper for the grocer business) price chopper in 2008 is the 38th largest retailer in the supermarket business (in North America). They were 38th in 2007, and 37th in 2006. I feel that is important to put in the article but dont know of the best place for it, anyone have suggestions? 24.182.142.254 (talk) 01:42, 2 November 2008 (UTC)

Price Chopper's website says 15 in Massachusetts and 7 in Connecticut. This is in contrast to 14 and 5 in this article. Which is correct? 24.182.142.254 (talk) 01:54, 2 November 2008 (UTC)
