Former Erie County Farms Opens with New Name and Owner

Posted: Updated:

It has only been a couple months since local shoppers said “good-bye” to the bankrupt Erie County Farms grocery store.  Today, the new owners opened their doors.

The Buffalo based chain, Super Price Choppers, plan to keep the Erie County Farms name on the building, and they’re going to call it SPC’s Erie County Farm.

Those new owners say they plan to sell meat, cheese, fresh-caught fish and produce at discount prices, much like the old store.

They also plan to bring in as much local products as they can.

"I am so excited, I've been waiting for this day to come, again.  I love the produce, I love that you know helping the economy, Marie Bonds Boykin, a shopper.

"Everyday.  Our apples are here from a local guy, for example.  There's 3 or 4 different vendors here that are all local guys, says Bob Guenther, partner and manager of the store.

SPCs Erie County Farm will be open Tuesday through Saturday from 10 a.m. until 6 p.m.
