business news in context, analysis with attitude

Newsday reports that a Long Island, NY, warehouse that is operated by C&S Wholesale Grocers, and that services Waldbaum's and A&P stores in southern New York State, is scheduled to close on March 28.

According to the story, C&S has decided to serve the stores from warehouses in Connecticut and Pennsylvania. C&S said that the closure would save the company $7 million annually.

The story suggests that the closure may in part be because of a union contract that C&S was negotiating for the facility; the replacement warehouses employ non-union labor.
