The chain began seeking LEED certification for all newly constructed stores a few years ago. Its corporate headquarters in Schednectady is also LEED-certified.

Among the features Price Chopper often seeks to include in LEED stores, according to local reports, are auto-dimming lights, materials made from recycled content, locally sourced building materials, high-efficiency refrigeration, natural lighting and a cool-roof design.
