Hundreds of layoffs for Orange County employees of C&S Wholesale Grocers, Inc. began this month, as the supermarket supply company lost a major customer itself.
Two of the company’s 33 nationwide locations are currently in the Hudson Valley. Layoffs of 244 employees of C&S Wholesale Grocers’s Newburgh location began Oct. 1. Sixty employees accepted offers to transfer to another site, which could include its other regional facility in Chester. Termination dates for 134 employees have been extended and will run on a rolling schedule between Oct. 24 and Jan. 1, 2022.
