PITTSFIELD, Mass. — Price Rite Marketplace plans to close its Pittsfield location on Dalton Avenue by Sept. 30.
 
In a statement Thursday, Daniel Emmer with the supermarket's corporate communications confirmed rumors that the company will be closing the Pittsfield store.
 
"After 14 years, Price Rite Marketplace of Pittsfield has made the very difficult decision to close the store by September 30, 2020," he wrote. "Price Rite appreciates the loyalty of its customers who have supported the store through the years and its dedicated team members who have worked hard to serve our community."
 
He added that the company is sharing information regarding potential job opportunities or available positions at other Price Rite Marketplace stores in the region with employees.
 
Emmer did not indicate the reason for the closure.
 
Price Rite, a New Jersey-based market chain, is owned by Wakefern Food Corp.
 
The chain has stores in Connecticut, Maryland, Massachusetts, New Hampshire, New Jersey, New York, Pennsylvania, and Rhode Island.
 
In January, the Pittsfield store held a grand reopening after a substantial remodel. All Massachusetts stores underwent this rebranding.

Pittsfield Seeks Input For Draft Bicycle Facilities Master Plan

PITTSFIELD, Mass. — The city of Pittsfield is requesting public input for its draft Bicycle Facilities Master Plan.
 
The plan aims to establish a safe, comfortable and connected bicycle network throughout the city that is accessible to people of all ages and abilities.
 
"With this project, the City of Pittsfield is taking a significant step in its steadfast commitment to plan and implement a safe and accessible citywide network for people who bike for various reasons to a range of destinations throughout Pittsfield," City Planner CJ Hoss said. "The development of this master plan will be a collaborative process, and we are seeking to hear from the community."
 
The master plan will allow the city to develop a long-term citywide vision for a bicycle network and grow beyond a "one-street-at-a-time" planning approach, Hoss said. The city has retained Kittleson and Associations Inc., a nationally renowned transportation focused consulting firm, to lead this project.
