This is great, thanks! It reads like a personally narrated, guided tour of A&P's rise, operational evolution, and fall. And though this is specific to Greensboro, the story would be similar in a lot of other cities like it...

Thanks!

A&P in Greensboro and Safeway in San Francisco are arguably the genesis (geneses?) of this site, so this was a special one for me.
