A&P, voll ausgeschrieben The Great Atlantic and Pacific Tea Company, ist eine Supermarkt-Kette in den USA, deren Aktienmehrheit seit 1979 die Unternehmensgruppe Tengelmann hält.



The Great American Tea Company wurde 1859 von George Huntington Hartford und George Gilman gegründet. 1870 änderte man den Firmennamen in The Great Atlantic and Pacific Tea Company. Die Zahl der A&P-Läden wuchs zwischen 1876 und 1915 von 67 auf etwa 1.000 an und die Firma dominierte in der ersten Hälfte des 20. Jahrhunderts den amerikanischen Einzelhandel. Auf dem Höhepunkt der Entwicklung um 1935 betrieb A&P etwa 16.000 Läden mit einem Gesamtumsatz von etwa einer Milliarde Dollar. Die Marktmacht, die A&P vor allem auf die Lieferanten ausübte, wurde schließlich per Gesetz beschränkt.

A&P heute

The Great Atlantic and Pacific Tea Company ist seit dem Verkauf ihrer kanadischen Niederlassung im Jahr 2005 nur noch in den USA mit etwa 440 Läden vertreten. Diese befinden sich vorwiegend an der Ostküste und treten unter den Namen A&P, A&P Foodmart, A&P Liquor, Waldbaum's, Super Fresh, Farmer Jack, Sav-A-Center, The Food Emporium und Food Basics auf. Die Hauptverwaltung befindet sich in Montvale, New Jersey. Die Firma hat etwa 62.000 Mitarbeiter bei einem Jahresumsatz von etwa 9,4 Milliarden US-Dollar.
