A&P closing more stores!
The news is over a week old at this point but in case you missed it, like I did, A&P has announced more closings. 14 to be exact. You can read a short article at Supermarket News which includes a list of all affected stores.
An article over on NorthJersey.com includes a bit more information about the current state of the company. Namely the speculation of analysts that the company will eventually close 100 underperforming stores in order to get things back on track. While all of this is pretty bad news, it is important to keep in mind that a good amount of the store closings, past and present, are due to the overlapping of A&P and Pathmark locations. The article on NorthJersey.com discuses the A&P in Garfield New Jersey but doesn't mention that a Pathmark, just blocks away, will remain open.
