It is too bad that A&P decided to declare bankruptcy instead of merging with another grocery store chain.
At one point A&P was considering merging with Stop & Shop. The new name would have been STOP & P.
(We warned you it was a bad joke).
Still, it is sad to see the once proud Great Atlantic & Pacific Tea Company go out of business. We wish all the hard working people of A&P good luck and good fortune ahead as they look for new jobs going into the Holiday season.
In case anyone else forgets to say it; thanks for serving us through the years.
