When did these A&Ps close? Were any of them replaced?

Great post kroger!!!

"A&P, Montgomery Ward, and Woolworth's are examples of how long it can take large corporations, particularly retail, to decline and fade, achieving false starts and turn arounds along the way."

So very true.

But I believe Food Fair was the exception. Started in 1900 (history records it as 1910), it rose like a rocket and relatively fell like a meteor.

For many reasons that I (and pundits) stated way back......"the interest" was not there to keep the company alive via the methods you indicated above.

Even after all these years I still find this dead company (like no other) rich in enigma and paradox (and sometimes just plain weird).
