That’s what Ed Krumeich thinks, in a comment he posted below (Ed was weighing in on spaghetti spoons, and tossed this tidbit in as an aside). Somewhere on the web there’s a story about A&P being sold and stores shut, so this sounds right. To be honest, while I’ll be sorry if the employees there lose their jobs, I ‘m not surprised. I spent two years shopping there with an elderly friend and, while the employees were exceptionally friendly and helpful, I was not impressed with the store itself. It’s small, cramped, lacks half of what a modern supermarket like the Stamford ShopRite offers, and the prices were high. My friend liked shopping there and knew the layout, so I never tried moving her to another store, but I’ll bet younger shoppers have found better choices.
