A&P Puts "For Sale" Sign on Midwestern Supermarkets


The Great Atlantic & Pacific Tea Co. said it is in talks for the potential sale of its operations in the Midwest, citing unsatisfactory operating trends in the market and the need to devote resources to its expanding Northeast core business.

The supermarket chain said it informed its employees in the Midwest and their union representatives about the move to sell some stores.
