"A&P was the leader of the industry for so long and the largest US retailer (bigger than Sears). The book is quite a read. I did not know they were the leading retailer of fresh produce (until forced to sell by antitrust in the 50s). "

My mom shopped 99% of the time at the A&P store in River Edge NJ.....they were some of the first to have 'frozen foods' too.....

At some point, they went bankrupt, right?

I never lived in an area with A&P stores.... but I watched Food Lion go bust...and Albertson's cratered to almost zero....
