The Great Atlantic and Pacific Tea Company (A&P), the parent company of Pathmark and Super Fresh, announced earlier this week it is selling Food Emporium’s 16 Manhattan locations. The stores, its leases and the brand name are for sale.


Earlier this year A&P emerged from bankruptcy as a private company, and also with 75 fewer stores than it had pre-bankruptcy. In addition to Pathmark and Super Fresh, the company owns Waldbaum’s and Food Basics. Analysts believe the proceeds from the sale of Food Emporium will be invested into the other A&P brands.
