business news in context, analysis with attitude

Published reports say that the Great Atlantic & Pacific Tea Co. (A&P) is negotiating with a number of companies to sell its 21 Sav-A-Center stores in Louisiana. A&P has said that it believes it can sell the companies to a single buyer “committed to the continuity of the business going forward.”

A&P has been working to sell off operations – such as its Farmer Jack stores in Michigan – that it deems to be non-core, as it works to bolster its northeastern US business and acquire Pathmark Stores there.
