A&P I left in 1986 the writing was on the wall at that time
A&P has a chance still, and Krogers would look into buying A&P because of the market share they still hold and with krogers ability and buying power, they can turn A&P and the company around!
Kroger would be the Death of Acme
Hope so 30 year employee and the decline of the company is hard to watch its time to listen to us sometimes hands on knowledge is better than a college degree in a field that had nothing to do with the business
HIgh prices and empty parking spaces. You do the math!
in the philly region.... greys ferry, aramingo, glenolden, and Camden( unfortunately they chose to close this one).
You totally destroyed Pathmark! Why didn't you come in and ask pathmark mgrs what worked it our area for the customer instead of removing good products and driving prices up! Did you forget about the customer??!!!
After working 23 years for a&p they reminded me of the gang that couldn't shoot straight
While many observers look towards A&P like it is a comedy club, many current A&P workers are suffering from anxiety, and hopefully not too many will be afflicted with illnesses as a result.
Don't forget the wine and liquor stores, still profitable where they operate. These will probably be sold by location.
after 28 years w/ a&p pathmark is running the show. Rember pathmark was on the verg of bankrupt when they beged A&P to buy them now lets hope Kroger really wants to get in to the north east
Foodgles Supermarkets is making a bid to acquire A&P!
Bye bye a& p you destroyed Pathmark ...
Pathmark destoyed itself!
Fire Sam martin. And his gang .....
Current IRI sales are showing a significant decline in market share and sales volume over the past 26 weeks in most category. They have no choice other than selling the stores by group/location
If this is true, the company is doomed. This downward spiral will inevitably lead to a break up and sell-off of the stores
No buyer will want to own the entire company but rather acquire the best stores left - most likely Shop Rite and Stop & Shop.
No sensible company would want A&P.
A&P should have accepted the bid from Pathmark years ago, it would now be a better run company
Just look at the few dozen SuperFresh and Pathmarks in the Philadelphia-Wilmington corridor; and with new and existing surging competition, how many stores can be reopened as truly credible competitive high-volume supermarkets?
Of the 36 or so, there are about 10 that are viable.
