Farewell to a classic...

The Final Days of The Morristown A&P

Location: 110 Washington St, Morristown, NJ 

The classic Centenial A& P shut it doors for good on December 6, 2013. I stopped in just a few days before its last and found virtually nothing left on the shelves. This store was covered on the blog in happier times back in 2010. To visit that post, please click here.

A&P will hold the lease here until the end of the year. In 2014, Whole Foods will take over the location and will open by the end of next year. It will be interesting to see how they transform the building. With such limited parking on the property, it's doubtful they will expand the footprint of the building. Time will tell the fate of the Centennial store front. I imagine they will significantly overhaul every inch of this place.

An aerial shot reveal the limited parking lot here. Whole Foods will undoubtedly draw a crowd bigger than this lot will be able to handle especially on the weekends. Acme Style will cover this store when Whole Foods opens.
