Big Y has scrapped plans to build a grocery store in Holyoke.
The company said they will not move forward with plans for a store at the intersection of Homestead Avenue and Lower Westfield Road.
In a release, Big Y said between the slow economic recovery and uncertainty in the region the proposed site no longer fits their long-term objectives.
Holyoke is still a proposed site for a Walmart on nearby Whiting Farms Road.
