Many have written in about the closing of the large Pathmark supermarket on 145th Street and have been wondering what will happen going forward after this week. Crain's reported that the parent company A&P has filed for bankruptcy protection and will be letting go of the more expensive sites in Manhattan. We received some information today on what will actually become of the store in the near future.
Basically A&P wants to sell off the site at an auction set for today and another supermarket chain already has one of the highest bids in for the 145th Street location. Everything will probably stay pretty much the same except for changes on the signage and packaging within. Folks who want a Trader's Joe should probably not have their hopes too high on this one since what will be forthcoming is not anything too trendy.
