Our Company

Since 1859, the simple letters "A&P" have stood as a trusted source of fresh, high-quality food for the family dinner table. Starting with our first store at the corner of Vesey and Church streets in New York City, The Great Atlantic & Pacific Tea Company continually strives to better meet the needs of families in all of the neighborhoods we serve.

Today, with more than 300 stores operating under the A&P, Food Basics, The Food Emporium, Pathmark, Superfresh and Waldbaum's banners, we're proud to be one of the largest grocery companies in the Northeast. Despite our size, we are still a local business, working with local growers, bakers and manufacturers. Our goal is to bring personal, top-notch service to the millions of people living in the diverse communities of the Northeast.
