SCHENECTADY, N.Y. — Northeast Grocery Inc., the parent company of Price Chopper/Market 32 and Tops Markets, announced Wednesday the upcoming retirement of CEO Scott Grimmett and named former Tops Markets Chairman and CEO Frank Curci to that position. Grimmett's retirement will be effective in February.

I want to thank all of the teammates and associates at Price Chopper/Market 32 and Tops who have worked so hard to serve our customers, especially during these difficult times. I also want to thank the Golub family for trusting me to shepherd this exceptional company into the next phase of its near century of industry leadership," said Grimmett.
 
Grimmett is concluding a 48-year career in the retail grocery industry.
