A & P Food Market

11/19/2007:

It was recently announced that A&P purchased a successful NYC wine company. I’ve never been a big fan of A&P’s beer selection (haven’t seen the wine choices). I wonder if this new acquisition will help improve their offerings at the Hoboken location?

A&P Buys Wine Retailer

On November 15th, 2007, the Great Atlantic & Pacific Tea Company, Inc. announced it bought Best Cellars Inc., a New York City-based wine retailer. A&P says that as part of the transaction, Best Cellar co-founder Joshua Wesson will join the Montvale-based supermarket chain as senior director of beer, wine & spirits. The purchase price will be based upon the growth of A&P’s beer, wine and spirits business, and will be calculated and paid after four years.

A&P, which plans to buy the Carteret-based chain of Pathmark Stores Inc. for $1.3 billion in cash, stock and debt, currently operates 19 freestanding wine and liquor stores, and 12 in-store departments in New York, New Jersey Connecticut and other markets.

Founded in 1859, A&P operates 315 stores in six states and the District of Columbia under such brands as A&P, Waldbaum’s, The Food Emporium, Super Foodmart, Super Fresh and Food Basics.

[quote comment=”69738″] State law: No beer, wine or liquor sold after ten.” in a very officious tone, like he was responsible for the drafting of it.

I thought it was just nothing with an alcohol content over 7% could be sold after 10pm.

Has anyone ever been checked out by the funny guy that works the night shift here. He is at least 45 and takes his job at the A & P more seriously then anyone ever should. I wouldn’t knock the guy for having pride in his job if he wasn’t such a fucking douchbag. The other night I asked him if they were still selling wine and he said ” State law: No beer, wine or liquor sold after ten.” in a very officious tone, like he was responsible for the drafting of it. I told him a simple no… Read more »

[quote comment=”54497″]My favorite thing about wine is this: The majority of people I know who claim to be wine aficionados can’t tell the difference between a $10 bottle and a $30 (let alone $100)[/quote] True story: we have an associate (friend of a friend who has a nasty habit of inviting/including themself whenever/wherever possible) who loves to tell the world what an expert she is on wine. A couple of months ago we gave her a glass of some crappy $6 wine and marveled at how wonderful her imagination was…or how bizarre her palate must be: 1. It was corked.… Read more »
