43 Stores That Have Closed & You Will Never Be Able To Shop At Again
The store most of us knew as A&P was actually officially called the Great Atlantic & Pacific Tea Company, and itâ€™s been around for a long, long time. Or, it had been, anyway, before the store closed its final store in 2016. A&P was once the largest chain in the United States, and families across the country relied on it for groceries, freshly baked goodies, and even doctor-prescribed medications. Unfortunately, by the early 2000s, the chain was on the decline, and had to file for bankruptcy in 2010, and then again in 2015. Fun fact: Womenâ€™s Day magazine was created by A&P! There’s no shortage of big grocery stores at the moment, so A&P isn’t quite missed. But many of us have at least a memory or two of shopping for food in the aisles of A&P!
