In a filing with the state Department of Labor, the company announced that the facility at 1500 Corporate Blvd. is to begin on October 2nd with the shutdown of operations.

The company said the closure was “the result of a decision by one of its largest customers to move to a self-selling model,” a reference to Ahold Delhaize, the parent company of supermarket chains Hannaford and Stop & Shop. The company has announced that it will develop a self-distribution model over the next two years.

The company will retain its other Hudson Valley location at 1 Elizabeth Drive in Chester.

C&S Wholesale Grocers is headquartered in Keene, New Hampshire and operates 33 facilities across the country.
