The Great Atlantic & Pacific Tea Co., better known as A&P, filed for Chapter 11 bankruptcy Monday in U.S. Bankruptcy Court for the Southern District of New York - its second such petition in five years. The Montvale, N.J.-based company currently operates 296 stores, primarily in the highly competitive northeastern U.S. market, under the banners of the Pathmark, Super Fresh, Food Basics, A&P, Best Cellars, Food Emporium, and Waldbaum's chains. For now, business at those stores will continue as usual, A&P said in a statement Monday.

After at least a decade of uncertainty, officials yesterday formally unveiled redevelopment plans for the former Amtrak train station site on North Broad Street. Centerpiece of the project is a new 50,000-square-feet Pathmark supermarket that would be located on the western side of the site, along Glenwood Avenue between 15th and 16th streets. Work has begun on the store, which is supposed to open by mid-1999. The 97-year-old, 7,500-square-feet station building, unused since the 1980s, will be renovated, and a new 12,500-square-feet structure will be built between the station and Broad Street.

The Burholme Civic Association apparently has lost the first round of its fight to block construction of a shopping center just west of the highly congested Five Points intersection. Whether there will be a second round has not been decided. An opinion issued to the Zoning Board of Adjustment by the city solicitor's office last month leaves little room for the association to hope that building permits issued by the Department of Licenses and Inspections will be declared invalid.

The firm that had planned to build a multimillion-dollar shopping center and Pathmark supermarket in Burholme has apparently given up on the project. Principals in the battle over the proposed construction on the old Cottman Building Materials Co. grounds, 840 Cottman Ave., said last week that Pathmark's developers, Lerner-Heidenberg Associates of Fort Lee, N.J., had let options on the site expire and made no efforts to renew them. Coates Colman, a partner in Lumbermen Associates, owner of the property, confirmed the report.

The city solicitor's office has been asked to step into a continuing dispute over building permits issued to prospective developers of a Pathmark shopping center in Burholme. Members of the Zoning Board of Adjustment asked the solicitor's office for guidance last week on permits being granted by the Department of Licenses and Inspections despite a zoning change aimed at blocking the project. The request for a legal opinion was made after Anthony Pugliese, chief of the permit-issuance section of L&I, confirmed at a special hearing last Wednesday that permits were still being issued for work on the multi-million dollar project.

The Great Atlantic & Pacific Tea Co. told employees Tuesday that it would close three Pathmark supermarkets, in Cherry Hill, Camden, and Edgewater Park, in 60 days. Union leaders said about 300 clerks, stockers, cashiers, seafood, bakery, and meat and deli workers will lose their jobs. A&P, which reorganized and emerged from bankruptcy in 2011, owns Pathmark and Super Fresh groceries. With the latest closings, the only Pathmark store in South Jersey will be in Ventnor. "It did not come as a surprise," said Brian String, president of United Food and Commercial Workers Union Local 152. "We had a premonition.

Not long ago, Supermarkets General Corp. sat securely at the top of the heap among supermarket operators. The Woodbridge, N.J., company that runs Pathmark had all the requisite vital signs: robust sales and earnings, a dominant position in most of its markets and an enviously harmonious relationship with its 53,000 unionized employees. Of course, that was before it became a takeover target. Now, Supermarkets General is in the throes of a massive leveraged buy-out designed to keep it free of the clutches of Dart Group Corp.

Stanley R. Krakower told his clients what he was going to do and why. He told the 40 who turned out for a special meeting last week of the Burholme Civic Association that their battle with Supermarkets General Corp., parent company of Pathmark, will be different from the usual zoning fight. This time, he said, the opposition is not just the developer but the city, too. "What you're doing in this case," the attorney said, "is challenging the issuance of a set of permits by the Department of Licenses and Inspections.

As patrons approached the glass doors of the Pathmark supermarket in Camden on Friday, a security guard turned them away. "We're closed," said Dan Graves, 59, who has been working security for 18 years for the company that owns Pathmark and Super Fresh stores. "There's nothing left inside. " But that didn't stop the steady stream of cars, trucks, and those arriving by bus or foot in the supermarket's parking lot throughout Friday in what took on the air of a wake. Many said they were misled by the large "Store Closing" banner out front, thinking they had one more day. Some longtime employees gathered in clusters outside and embraced as if they had just lost a loved one. Reality eventually began to sink in: The neighborhood icon and social gathering place was shuttered for good.

The Northern Liberties developer behind a planned Pathmark supermarket has asked a bankruptcy judge to clear the way for a different supermarket to open, if need be, at the old Schmidt's Brewery, where Pathmark holds a lease but has not yet opened its store. "I petitioned the courts to have them do that a month ago," Bart Blatstein said Wednesday of efforts to enforce or dissolve his lease with Pathmark, whose parent company, A&P, has been in bankruptcy since December. "Leave," Blatstein said.

In the year since Camden's Pathmark supermarket closed, leaving cashier Eunice Miller without a job, she has struggled financially, and has missed working at what she calls a central gathering place for the region. "I'm so glad to be back," Miller, 52, of Woodlynne, said Wednesday at the grand opening of a PriceRite store as she greeted shoppers with a complimentary goody bag and a warm smile. Those shoppers, who now have a nearby, fair-priced, produce-lush supermarket to shop in, echoed her sentiment.

WILLIAM LAWLER didn't want to shoot the man who threatened his girlfriend and him with a 13-inch knife Sunday outside a Pathmark store near his Northeast Philadelphia home. But even after Lawler, 38, an Army veteran and longtime firearms instructor, showed his 9 mm Glock, the knife-wielding madman didn't want to back down. "At least a half-dozen times, I ordered him to stop. The last time, I said, 'I don't want to shoot you, but I will,' " Lawler said yesterday, recounting the bizarre run-in outside the supermarket, on Frankford Avenue near Megargee Street in Holmesburg.

Given the adage likening anything distasteful to watching sausage being made, there's probably something funny to say about no longer being able to see sausage production at Maglio Fresh Foods in South Philadelphia. But nobody's laughing at Third Street and Pattison Avenue. Not the owners. And certainly not the employees - 70 at the company's peak in 1989 - who lost their jobs when the third-generation company outsourced manufacturing and packaging to North Jersey seven months ago. It was a do-or-die situation, said Anthony L. Maglio, 72, co-owner and vice president, whose late father, Lou, was a brother of the company's founder.

CHELTENHAM The Cheltenham Township school board has dropped its plan to relocate two-thirds of its middle school students to Gratz College and will move them instead to sites in Cheltenham and Springfield Townships. The Montgomery County district has been scrambling since fall to find alternative classrooms for the 750 students at Cedarbrook Middle School, which is plagued by mold and expected to be uninhabitable by spring. At a special meeting Tuesday night, the board approved a plan to lease space in the old Pathmark building on Ivy Hill Road in Springfield Township, and at St. Joseph Parish on Waters Road in Cheltenham.

Among the top 10 phrases former Philadelphians first utter upon returning to the city, "Oh look, it's the Roosevelt Boulevard!" is usually not one. Then again, food writer Anya von Bremzen's world was small when she first arrived with her mother as an 11-year-old Soviet émigré to the farthest reaches of Northeast Philadelphia in 1974. And as we drove from 30th Street Station, where she arrived for the day from Queens where she now lives, she was doing a fine job embracing this long-overdue revisit to her first American home with chipper optimism.

Camden's only chain supermarket, in the southern tip of the city, is not just a place to get food and paper towels. It is a place where many of this impoverished city's 77,000 residents say they look forward to going to catch up with friends and neighbors. A safe haven for adults. But the mood outside the Pathmark on Wednesday was just like the gray clouds looming over the store's parking lot. Shoppers were commiserating with each other and employees over the news that the long-standing store will shut its doors for good in September.

One day after the Great Atlantic & Pacific Tea Co. announced that it would close three Pathmark supermarkets in South Jersey, customers said they would sadly have to change their shopping habits, some cultivated over decades. "There's just something about this one," Michelle Miller of Burlington Township said Wednesday in the parking lot of the Edgewater Park store along Route 130. "It's more hometown. " The stores in Cherry Hill, Camden, and Edgewater Park are to close in September, at which time 300 employees will lose their jobs.
