If you follow Tengelmann, the parent of A&P, they are starting to divest their PLUS stores within Europe, seeking partners in Germany, and focusing on their Kaiser stores and other non-grocery operations.

Those two simple words were integrated in weekly ads and even column space was devoted in weekly ads elaborating on this commitment. You can find plenty of these locat...

Others in the District of Columbia and Maryland suburbs

Takoma Park, (New Hamsphire Av) now an Aldi's

Georgia Av, Wheaton, now an "Hmart" Asian supermarket.

The 48th and Yuma St. SuperFresh. Again, the front has been altered, but it is a 1959 Centenial store.

Also one in Rockville, MD, is a Kosher Food Store.
