The Niskayuna Consumers Co-Op, which does business as only Co-Op Supermarket, has been in business since 1943 but this building looks more modern than that. It's been expanded to about 13,000 square feet and unlike many coop stores seems to be a fairly standard supermarket, instead of the more common natural/specialty style store.
Our contributor Lars D., who submitted these photos, reports that the relatively small store is very popular in the town of Niskayuna, in the Capital Region of New York just outside Schenectady and about 15 miles outside of Albany.
The store is located just across the street from a ShopRite that opened in 2011 in a long-vacant former Grand Union. So far, the smaller store has held up just fine against the 55,000 square foot ShopRite, which has nicely renovated the old Grand Union property.
The store looks to be very nicely renovated, though at least based on exterior design, the renovation may predate ShopRite. Notice that the store uses Best Yet storebrand items.
The decor, flooring, and fixtures all look to be relatively new. That wraps up our look at the Niskayuna Co-Op!
