Big Y was a store I used to work in. Good store and I miss the food courts in the SUPERMARKETS in New England. Food Courts (and supermarket branches) aren't in stores here. Food Prices are HIGH in Florida!!!!

Most Big Ys are around Springfield MAssachusetts. They started in I believe longmeadow or Chicopee. They started in Chicopee. Most of their stores are 64,000 square feet and a lot of them were next to an Ames, like in PAlmer Mass, East Longmeadow MAss, Southwick mass etc. There were some in northern  connecticut.

I recently was looking for some new grocery store pictures or information to add to the posts for the grocery store threads and found this cool flyer. It is a cut out from the January store flyer, and it describes Big Y's 70 anniversary this year. I thought it would be cool to add to this thread. Enjoy.

PS = Sorry about the files there are three separtate pictures because my scanner would not work I had to break it down into 3 medium quality pics. Here is 1 of 3.

Here are shots of a few Big Y's:

The first 2 are the store in Pittsfield (about a block from the "green".  It's a fairly good sized store - has a pharmacy and a liquor store inside as well.

The 3rd is the store in Adams on Route 8 - this is a smaller store and an interesting one with the upper level (offices, I guess?) .

The last is the store in North Adams on Route 2.  It is average size, bigger than Adams, slightly smaller than Pittsfield.

All of these stores have been as they are at least 10-15 years (probably more) with only minor changes (the Pittsfield ones used to be white, for example).

Big Y had a tiny little store at the intersection of Farmington Ave, Woodford Ave, and Route 10 in Plainville, Connecticut. It was in a former Greenfield's  Supermarket location. In 1993 or 1994 they opened World Class Big Y a few miles down the street in a brand new plaza on New Britain Ave (Route 372). On my birthday I was trying to convince my friend that we should get some of their pizza because we were short on money, but he said he hated their pizza (he's Sicillian) and we ended up going to Applebee's instead, so I ened up paying more than half of the bill.

There are rumors BIG Y will be building a store on Route 229 (West Street) in Southington.

Oh man, you remember Greenfield's?! We used to shop there all the time. I remember asking my dad what "Big Y" was when they went out of business. Funny thing is that the Blockbuster in the left half of the former Greenfields building still has that weird looking honeycomb wall.

BIG Y open 2 new stores in CT over the last few months - Ellington and Guilford. No word yet on whether or not they'll move in the former Shaw's in Southington or not.  (They probably won't. They'll say it's too close to their Plainville store). Even if they do, they can't do anything until 2007. Shaw's still has a lease until either December 31, 2006 or March 31, 2007. The whole store needs to be completely gutted before anything moves in there, grocery store or not.

The Waterford, CT Big Y is closed.  They replaced a Shaw's store which only lasted a few years.  I guess it wasn't a good location for a supermarket.

Here's a Super Big Y sign in Torrington Parkade in Torrington, CT (the former Ames plaza). The store itself doesn't say "Super" anymore, these are probably leftover from the early 90s. This store is being demolished for a bigger, newer store (or already is?).


Title: The street sign.
Post by: Marc82 on May 15, 2008, 03:57:08 PM
The new Big Y is about to open in Torrington. The old store will be demolished next month and replaced by a Lowe's.

It is now open, it's very nice inside, the old section of the plaza is still standing, however not for very long.

Hi it is me, I'm the previous anonymous poster from the last post on this thread, I'm going to have to say the new Big Y is very very very nice inside very rustic.

And before you ask NO I am not that anonymous person who hurled all those vile complaints about this forum, that guy was a jack.....*ahem* idiot, he should know better manners when posting on a forum.

The older part is still standing however Lowe's is supposed to replace the space in 2009, so it will not be standing there for very long.

No not that type of closing.  Big Y will close its East Hartford Store on Jan 15th.  I spoke to a vendor and there will be two more closing around the same time.

On a brighter note, they just held a Grand Opening of there Great Barrington MA store last week.

Post by: CTAmeshopper on November 21, 2008, 05:41:01 PM
I highly doubt they'll close the new Big Y in Torrington that one just opened, I 'm guessing the lesser successful stores will be closing like a real old one or one that doesn't get a lot of customers. I bet Plainville will probably close that one is older and doesn't seem to get a lot of customers, plus it's in an area with a lot of empty buildings surrounding two large plazas and a car dealership. I'll miss it thought if it does close.

there's a lot of abandoned buildings there it looks so depressing.


Title: The street sign.
Post by: Joeg on November 21, 2008, 06:18:13 PM
Well you never know.  I heard it will be the smaller type stores that will be closing, certanily not stores that have just opened.

Could be Mass stores??

The Plainville one isn't older unless you consider 15 years old as older. It replaced a much smaller store where Blockbuster/CVS is now.  As for the abandoned buildings just up the road from Big Y there are rumors that there's a 3 way bidding war for that property. The 3 are Walmart, BJs, and Home Depot.


I hope New Britain Ave. in Plainville sees more action. That's a fairly nice stretch, and the Connecticut Commons is a nice plaza. I remember when K Mart was in that plaza. That was a nice K Mart.

As for Big Y, I went to the Plainville store last December. It's a cute store and I can't see why it would do badly. Years back, my parents tried to shop here, but it was so packed and was so small that we ended up going to the Rocky Hill Big Y instead. The only choice in that area besides Big Y is the Stop and Shop in New Britain. Though I must say it was quite small. They would make good if they could move in to the old Shaw's in New Britain. It's a bit bigger and you could see the building from Route 9. Plus, that area of NB needs a little revival. I still don't have a clue why Shaw's pulled out of NB, and would also wonder why Big Y in Plainville would want to close up as well. I believe that Big Y doesn't like having small stores (their name says it all) and E. Hartford probably is too small for them. Although, I would think it would do well in E. Hartford.

BTW, I surely hope their Rocky Hill location doesn't go anywhere. I really never go there, but it looks to be a good store.

Post by: Joeg on November 21, 2008, 08:11:46 PM
Big Y has some smaller stores in Ct and Mass. i.e Stafford Springs, Plainfield, Ware, Ludlow and some towns I probably don't know.  For them to close a store (last one I think was the Waterford CT one?) either they are hurting for business or they are just going to focus on there more profitable stores only.  Every company goes thru this.

I highly doubt they would close a store like Rocky Hill or Enfield or any of the "World Class Markets".

Post by: momof3 on November 22, 2008, 12:15:13 PM
Is Plainville a world class market???Can't remember.


Title: The street sign.

Yes it is.  It was the first World Class Market that Big Y opened in Ct in 1994.

Thank you, actually I was at the Plainville store yesterday and it was very busy.  And i did notice on the sign it said World Class Market.

FOX 61 confirmed the closure of the East Hartford store on tonights news. They said they got the story from the Journal-Inquirer of Manchester. FOX also reported that the mayor is looking for a replacement grocery chain for the site.

It was in the Journal Inquirer yesterday.  Mayor Currey is in talks with supermaket chains including Price Chopper.

I think it may stay vacant for awhile.


Title: The street sign.
Post by: Joeg on December 03, 2008, 05:30:15 PM
Other than Price Chopper, the mayor of East Hartford is talking to other supermarket chains to fill in the soon to be closed Big Y.

Would like to see Price Chopper, it may be to small for them, but East Hartford needs a full service supermarket on that side of town.


Title: The street sign.
Post by: AmesNewington on December 03, 2008, 05:46:22 PM
Shop Rite should start expanding back in to CT (adding on to the stores they already have in CT). Shop Rite should think about the E. Hartford Big Y, and in addition to Middletown, they should look at Newington and/or Elmwood. (Newington is wishful thinking as always).


Title: The street sign.
Post by: Joeg on December 03, 2008, 06:00:02 PM
Shop Rite is in Manchester, and I don't think they would take over the old Big Y(too close to there Manchester store).

Elmwood section of West Hartford has the new Price Rite that open in the old Caldors(I think).  

I think the Shop Rite of Manchester should move across the street to the old K-Mart.  Boy, that would be a huuuuuggge store for them (100,000.00 plus). Since I don't think Price Chopper will come to Manchester.  

So.. In my opioin(sic) Price Chopper would be the best fit for the soon to be close Big Y.  That part of town needs a full service supermarket (though Shop Rite would do great) not a Sav-a-Lot, Aldi, Price Rite or any other "limited store".

Big Y is the only supermarket in that part of town, and something should replace it soon, but....with enconomy in the tank ya never know!

How is Waldbaums doing in West Hartford?? any news on any new remodels? I see they converted a Food Empourim in Greenwhich into an A&P Fresh Market.

Waldbaum's is doing just fine. That store will never go anywhere unless A&P goes under. Think of how the supermarkets were full years back even on weekdays, and that's Waldbaum's. Of course, it's decieving because both the parking lot and store itself are rather small. Even with that said, West Hartford people do BIG shopping. Not so much a lot of items, rather high ticket items. A lot of housewares, and other non-food items go through as there is no Wal Mart or Target in WH. There is a Wal Mart in Avon though. Don't forget Kosher items are a big draw for Jewish customers. People come from as far as Fairfield county for weeks supplies of their Kosher items at Waldbaums as well as Crown Supermarket nearby. As far as remodels, you're right, Food Emporium in Greenwich was converted to A&P Fresh, and is now a part of the A&P division, and the Branford Foodmart was converted to A&P Fresh. Their strategy is to remodel the stores that are high volume. Middletown should be next in my opinion because of competition including Aldi and ShopRite moving in. I personally like Berlin the way it is (it's a nice store). I feel that Bridgeport should be closed. I saw pictures of it. It puts A&P to shame.

Anyway, back on topic, it's too bad no one will snatch up Big Y. Everybody needs to buy food and it's very inconvenient to waste gas and travel across town for food. It's too bad Waldbaum's/A&P wasn't planning on opening new stores with the Fresh concept. It would be a perfect fit for E. Hartford. You wouldn't believe all of the good things I ring out at the register.

And I'm not being rude in any way, but I'm sick of the Economy being the excuse for everything going wrong. How is the country going to get back to normal when businesses keep closing? New jobs are needed. Big Y closing was not because of the Economy. Companies make decisions based upon what they feel is best for their business. I do believe that spot in E. Hartford is viable and on the report I heard, the store was actually a fairly busy store, just not big enough.

Well, we'll see what happens.


Title: The street sign.
Post by: Joeg on December 04, 2008, 01:45:04 PM
Good Thoughts.  I have some more news on other Big Y stores closings.

Boston Rd Springfield
St James Ave Springfield
May St Woscter(sic) Mass.
and East Hartford CT.

So far these are the four stores that are closing. Big news is that I know someone that works for Big Y and they are going to be laying off tons of people in the near future.  They are having a biiiiggg meeting next month and I think that is when the axe will be falling.

Your right, most compaines use the excuse of the Economy as the reason they are restructring or closing stores etc etc.

Companies go thru these things every year.  New England is a very competive are in regards to grocery stores. Big Y has not been able to compete with there high price/high image.

Yes there stores are nice looking and such, but when was the last time you saw Coke or Pepsi 4/10?? or coffee at 2/3??


Title: The street sign.
Post by: momof3 on December 04, 2008, 01:48:28 PM
Their Buy 1 get 2 free sales are good though.


Title: The street sign.
Post by: Joeg on December 04, 2008, 01:53:30 PM
Not really.  It depends on the products that are BOG2FREE.

If you notice it is always the same things.  It just like BOGO.

When was the last time Big Y ran a half price sale??

They appeal to a certain type of clientele(sic), not the people who go to Shop Rite or Aldi's or Save-a-Lot.

Once again, to pricey for me.


Title: The street sign.
Post by: momof3 on December 05, 2008, 08:14:01 AM
Joeg, For me the Buy 1 get 2 free is a good deal when it is something I will use.  For instance strawberries or laundry detergent.  I have 3 kids so I do alot of laundry (ha ha)
No they haven't had a 1/2 price sale in a long time, but I do find their stuff to be very fresh.  Do you really think they are more pricey than Stop & Shop????I know the S7S near me has gone up on alot of things.


Title: The street sign.
Post by: Joeg on December 05, 2008, 02:46:34 PM
Well it depends on where you live. And yes Big Y has gone over the top with there prices.  I can see detergent and paper towels are good at BOG2 Free, but for regular shopping, no ,to pricey for me.  Stop & Shop has come a long way in lower there prices, and they are alot cheaper than Big Y of even Shaws on some things.  Shop Rite is an always will be the low price leader in CT as a mainline supermaket.

It just to bad that they don't have more stores in Connecticut.

Wow indeed!!

I was surprise to see that they are closing their Boston Rd Springfield store, because that was there first World Class Market that they opened in 1993.  May St in Worcester was a built from the ground up store.  2 World Class Markets closing is not a good sign for Big Y.

I think big changes will be happening in the next few months.

Marc, you said Bristol Shaws would be closing, is that true??

I really hope they remodel Manchester CT soon!

Here are the facts. A friend of mine I worked with at the now-defunct Southington Shaw's came through my line at Walmart the other day. (He transfered to Bristol after Southington closed). I asked him how the Bristol Shaw's was doing. He told me the store is not doing well and corporate has been talking about closing the store, but they had yet to make a decision, but they had mentioned February 2009 as a possible closure date.

As with anything else - WE SHALL SEE. *sigh*

Some more news about Big Y.  They had there meeting and it was on Fox 61 that they laid off over 400 employees!!.  Training and new store development are laid off, plus no more frozen foods or floral managers, they were laid off too.

Also, another Big Y will be closing in Ware MA.

That is a shame, companies are laying off people left and right.  I know some of you don't care for Big Y because they seem pricey but I do like them alot.  I guess its all about what you buy and if you can use the BOGO.

I don't think it is a question about wether people like Big Y or not.  I been in this business for many years and I remember Big Y when they were a competior in the supermarket business.  But they decide to go this high quaility/high price image many years ago, and it work to some degree.  But with today's economy, people can't afford to pay their prices anymore.  The economy has had its ups and downs over many years, and don't forget the late 70's and early 80's when inflation was close to 20%, people went were they could afford to shop. A&P, Grand Union suffered then because they were to high priced, and they fell by the wayside.

Big Y will survive, and they will come back, but the public percieves(sic) them to be to high priced and wether they have BOG2free or BOGO it just doesn't matter anymore.

This is why ALDI's and Price Rite's and Sav-a-Lot's are doing extremley well whatever the economy is doing.

Joeg, Good point.

The thing I find strange is every time I go by the Aldis here in town it looks dead.  I have shopped Aldis and they do have very good prices, maybe i am just by there at an off time.
I also see people shopping for groceries at Walmart more so too.

Big Y has been hurting for a company for more than a year. They spent 22 million dollars rebuilding the Great Barrington Big Y and less than 3 months later bussiness is only half of what they estimated. They already combined all their departments like all the other stores. Seafood is now run by Meat. Haba/GM, Frozen, Dairy are all run by the Grocery Manager. Deli now runs the prepared foods. Managers have been demoted to clerks in the combined departments and full timers have been laid off to make room.  This is why for the last year Big Y has had a campaign going company wide pleading with employees and even threating to sell the company if a union was allowed to enter. They new this was coming and if a union was in house it would not be permitted. They claim to be family run but yet they stabbed over 400 hundred long time employees in the back. People should just forget the high prices and shop elsewhere!

Wow! you hit the nail on the head. Welcome to the board.

You are so right about Big Y. The Journal Inquirer in Manchester CT had an article in Saturday's paper about Big Y laying off their "dedicated employees".  I did not know that they were threatning to close/sell the company if the employees voted for a union.

What other fallout do you see happening?? more store clousres(sic)???

I'm guessing this guy works for Big Y.  Sad they had to lay off the people who built the company and brought it to the standards it is today.  It truly was a great place to work.  Unfortunately, in these times, these companies can't absorb their losses, such as a huge company like Stop & Shop, and even Shaw's.

I was informed just last week that by the first quarter of '10 that stores will close, buyouts will be given to employees who have long tenure, and layoffs will be given.  This may be a scare tactic to get the employees into a buyout plan, but anything is possible in this economy.

It's a solid idea. A lot of Shoprites in my area don't have self-checkouts and instead rely on having a good amount of cashiers. Stop & Shop on the other hand is clearly on the other side of this argument, with lots of self-checkouts and Scan-Its taking the place of a few cashiers.

Maybe that's why their Grand Opening sales seemed to go on for months.  Obviously, people who liked Shoprite have not lost it, they just have drive a little further south to get to it.  This means that Big Y is sort of a replacement for Shaw's.  I wonder if it will close in not too long, like the Waterford store in the former Shaw's.  I think Big Y is the most expensive of chains, with Shoprite being the least expensive, and Stop & Shop in the middle.  The Hamden Shoprite seems to always be at least twice as busy as Shaw's was, however Stop & Shop seems to have remained busy too.  I think people come to Shoprite from a wider area.

In a way, I am glad Big Y didn't hire me. I really don't care for working at SR in WH because of the clientel and area, but SR is pretty fair and gave me a chance. To me, SR is a decent replacement for A&P/Waldbaums in the area.


Title: Re: Big Y
Post by: Scrabbleship on October 27, 2011, 03:19:01 PM
He was telling me that sales have more than tripled in the years since Shaw's in Canton became Shoprite.

ShopRite has that effect on stores they take over. The same thing is happening with the ex-Superfreshes they bought in Maryland as their sales have been up as ShopRite has been advertising heavily on Baltimore and DC radio and it's been working.

With their expansion into Baltimore, their toes dipped into the DC suburbs, and their reentry into the Albany market, ShopRite has a very good chance to grow into a major player especially if they can get a bunch of stores when A&P inevitably goes belly-up and/or the Fresh & Green's debacle in Maryland implodes.

As for Big Y to get this back on topic, they have their niche. They're the Giant Eagle of New England, quirky, slightly overpriced, but with loyalty programs that should be classified as addictive substances. In the long run, they and Price Chopper would make good bedfellows as the two don't overlap that much and the Big Y brand can be used for more "upscale" locations.

They're also +3 on LI locations since the beginning of the year, and they've signed a lease for one more that I know of. I would not be surprised in five years or so if it's just Ahold and Shoprite duking it out for the #1 spot.

I think that King Kullen is a little better off than Waldbaums/Pathmark and that another chain buying a controlling share in them (probably a fellow Topco member*) would keep things somewhat competitive. A Stop & Shop/ShopRite duopoly would be only bad news in the long run especially in a market with money such as Long Island.

* Given geography, my guess would be Price Chopper or Big Y.

Big Y is now deciding to remodel its West Hartford location in Bishop's Corner, I would say largely due to the fact that Walmart Neighborhood Market is opening across the street soon and it is a highly competitive area. This Big Y was once the very well known Waldbaums Foodmart that was sold to Big Y in 2010. I worked at Waldbaums and the store was remodeled under them in 2007. Big Y recently closed the pharmacy, and will expand their kosher department. They have started renovations. It's kind of sad for me to see them take away the layout of Waldbaums, but it's their store now.

On another note, I wonder if Rocky Hill will see a remodel in the future. Also, I wonder where the two new stores will be located in CT. I think one of them is Simsbury if they got approval.

There's a fair amount of M&A activity in the supermarket business now. I'm not sure what Big Y would bring given the dire financial straits the company was in just a few years ago. They are expanding again, so that is a good sign. I'd say that Big Y and Market Basket are both up for grabs at this point. Maybe if Kroger was looking at establishing themselves in New England they would be good places for them to start.

Otherwise this is what the should do:

Space 10 is Family Dollar. Move that to Space 1 next to Cardio Express.

Space 11 is Blossom Spa. Move that to Space 4 next to the Vacant Space 3A.

Space 12 is Vacant.

Space 13 is Cute Cutz. Divide Space 25 next to Subway and move it there.

Space 26 is vacant. Don't know why Space 26 is with Space 9, 10, 11, 12, and 13.

Then combine Space 9, 10, 11, 12, 13, and 26 and you get a space that is 28,141 Square Feet and you can put PRICE RITE Supermarket there albeit a smaller sized one.

Judging from the comments, Big Y's pricing strategy reliance on gimmicks is not winning over customers in Eastern Mass.

Likely just that people are used to Hannaford's model which is mostly everyday (lower) pricing with only a few real "sales" each week and thus the change to Big Y which has more sales items but probably higher pricing of items not on sale takes getting used to.

Surprising that people complain about cards, though, since Stop & Shop is also in the market and has used one for years as well.  Also, at least a few of the people didn't seem to understand how it worked -  the part about a license (which only deals with paying by check which most any place is going to ask for some kind of ID to do) and the one about converting to a Plenti type card where you can just use a phone # (which Big Y does as well with theirs).

If that comes to fruition, that would be a big boost to that area. I'm surprised that Stop and Snop or Price chopper are not interested

In this morning's Hartford Courant there was an article that stated that construction of the Simsbury, CT store has been pushed back to The Spring of 2016. No reason for the delay was given.

November 2017 update. Construction has yet to begin on the Simsbury Big Y store. Meanwhile the former Wagner Ford building continues to sit and deteriorate. They were supposed to bulldoze that to build the Big Y. It's been more than 5 years since they first talked about building a Big Y on that property.

Big Y will probably open in Derby, CT.

I read the same article. To me it isn't clear if they're taking the old Adam's Super Food Store or part of the old Walmart. Or will they take the entire Adam's space and part of the Walmart space. While the Adam's space is smaller than the typical BIG Y I know of two smaller stores - Cheshire and West Hartford.

The article also mentions they might come to Milford. Will they be taking the former ShopRite?
