Who Misses the Old A&P Supermarkets?

I haven’t heard anyone mention the old A&P stores in a long time…probably ‘cuz they left our area many years ago. Does anyone remember how long ago the A&P’s shut down around here?

A&P was THE place to shop 50-60 years ago…it was the Meijer, K-Mart, Walmart & Target of it’s time…but mostly for food & groceries.

“The Great Atlantic & Pacific Tea Company” – as it was originally called – was founded in 1859 as “Gilman & Company” in Manhattan, New York. In the 1870’s it became mostly a grocery store and A&P’s success exploded from there. After decades of being on top, it went into decline when other competitors sprang up…mainly, other huge grocery chains and K-Mart.

Stores across the nation shut down one-by-one, and by 2015, the last one closed it’s doors.

Where did you do your A&P shopping? Do you remember where the location was?
