Price Chopper Hops on Chuck Wagon

SCHENECTADY, N.Y. — Price Chopper Supermarkets [4] is promoting its new Chuck Wagon private-label dog food.

Marketed by Topco Associates, the brand was introduced on the Price Chopper Facebook [5] page last week.

“So you remember your favorite commercial from when you were a kid?” Price Chopper wrote. “We love this old Chuck Wagon Dog Food commercial and are happy to announce that we're once again carrying this brand.”

Included in the Facebook post was a link to a YouTube video of a Chuck Wagon television commercial from the 1970s. Purina originally owned the brand, but abandoned it in 2005.

Along with Price Chopper, other retailers carrying the brand include K-VA-T Food Stores, Lowes Foods, Associated Grocers, Piggly Wiggly Carolina, United Supermarkets and Tops Friendly Markets.

Chuck Wagon Dry Dog Dinner is available in 44-, 13- and 3.5-pound bags. The brand also offers dog biscuits, jerky strips and jerky sticks in a variety of pack sizes.
