A & P book author on the radio

"Marc Levinson chronicles the rise and fall of the grocery giant in The Great A&P and the Struggle for Small Business in America." Interesting interview you can hear here:

From August 23, 2001 in case you have to search for it. Sounds like a good read.

I just finished listening to it. It was a very interesting interview. I like how he mentioned that many of the same strategies that Walmart employs were originally used by A & P.

I just finished this book. A great read and an interesting study of both the company and the grocery business in general.

Quite a number of personal takeaways, not the least of which was how their headquarters was once just a few blocks from where I first lived, in Jersey City. That building is still intact.
