Not any more, alas. There used to be lots of A&P's in this area, but they all closed down many years ago. I used to love the fresh ground 8 O'Clock coffee smell there.

Yes, that’s one tidy looking store. Even the signs minimalist and orderly.

Nice to see a post here—I’ve not thought about this thread in a long while. :)
