BUFFALO—Mayor Byron W. Brown today announced that the City of Buffalo, through the Buffalo Employment & Training Center, will assist PriceRite Supermarket in holding a recruitment event for the opening of its new store located at 250 Elmwood Avenue.

“PriceRite is a great addition to the City of Buffalo and we will work to assist the company to find qualified applicants for several different job opportunities in the market,” said Mayor Brown.  “Through the Buffalo Employment and Training Center, we are able to match good candidates with jobs at the new store.  My Administration continues to focus on attracting investment and development projects that will increase job-creation options for city residents. The arrival of PriceRite in a formerly vacant retail location on Elmwood Avenue helps bring back a supermarket to this area of the city while presenting new job opportunities.”

The on-site employer recruitments have been scheduled for Friday, February 20,2009 and Monday, February 23, 2009  from 8:30am to3:00pm at the Buffalo Employment and Training Center (BETC), located at 77 Goodell Street. Potential job seekers are required to apply online at (http://www.priceritesupermarkets.com/) before being interviewed.

PriceRite’s goal is to hire about 80 to 100 individuals, with a starting salary of $8 per hour. PriceRite is headquartered in Wethersfield, CT, and has been in operation since 1995.  The company operates stores in New York, Connecticut, Massachusetts, New York, Pennsylvania, and Rhode Island.  This new location marks the company’s first Buffalo location.   The Elmwood location is set to open on Sunday, March 22, 2009.
