IF additional stores from other retailers should become available soon in the Philadelphia area, PriceRite model would fit the bill to be a very successful replacement in select locations.

Frugal: particularly with the unstable footing A&P is on. If their situation gets worse, I could see a few Pathmarks becoming these in the NYC/Philly metros if Wakefern wants.

Also Aldi is starting to expand here in the NYC metro, they've opened 2 stores on LI in Lake Grove and Bay Shore already, a 3rd in Lindenhurst very soon and a 4th is in planning in Patchogue.

union issue (not verified)

There is currently an embargo on opening new PriceRites in DelVal between Wakefern and UFCW, due to non-union status. The sole PR in Philadelphia area (Secane, UD Twnshp), opened before gentleman's agreement was reached.
