A&P will close 10 tri-state stores in the next two months

    A&P made the rounds to 10 local Pathmark and Super Fresh locations today to tell employees the stores will be closing. Three Pathmarks and seven Super Freshes will close in the next two months, the Inquirer reports.


    Great Atlantic & Pacific Tea Co. Inc — based in New Jersey — filed for bankruptcy in December, which the company then said would keep its stores stocked and fully operational.

    Someone’s got some ‘splainin to do.
