Hundreds of layoffs for Orange County employees at C&S Wholesale Grocers, Inc. began this month when the supermarket supplier itself lost a major customer.
Two of the company’s 33 statewide locations are currently in the Hudson Valley. C&S Wholesale Grocers’ layoffs of 244 employees at the Newburgh site began on October 1. Sixty employees accepted offers to move to another location, which could include the other regional office in Chester. The notice periods for 134 employees have been extended and will be implemented on a rolling schedule between October 24 and January 1, 2022.
