A&P, 1999

Post by pseudo3d » 17 Nov 2015 11:59

Obviously, A&P tried several concepts before its demise, but I'm curious about the c. 1999 A&P as seen here. I'm not sure if A&P had variants of this for its other markets (Kohl's Food, Sav-a-Center NOLA, Farmer Jack) but I'm kind of curious to see how this store type was. The commercial didn't show much of an interior, but it looked like it carried a greater collection of sundries and international foods, and had a menu for "Carryout Cuisine". Given that this was probably the last new A&P model before the "Fresh" remodels, the Pathmark acquisition, and shuttering all but the Northeastern stores, surely this model has a place in A&P history, right? How was it?

There were a couple of these built in the New Orleans area as Sav-A-Center stores. I'm pretty sure it was used throughout their different areas. I've also seen this design with SuperFresh and Farmer Jack logos on it.

Those 'Fast Lane' signs were used in A&Ps Canadian stores in the same era, except they were red & white. My store had them. However, no Canadian stores ever looked like the photos above, but that was also shortly before the US side of the business started adopting more Canadian A&P practices, such as the Canadian 'We're Fresh Obsessed' slogan.
