1960s A&P Introduction card
The card measures 3.5 x 2 inches. The logo is embossed onto a textured card stock. I recieved the card from my grandmother's estate. My grandfather, born in 1912, began working for A&P as a boy in the late 1920s. He quickly moved up the ranks and was made manager when still a teenager. Later he managed the first full-service grocery store in Rhode Island. Still later he became a regional supervisor and ultimately retired sometime in the late 1970s.
A&P (Atlantic and Pacific Tea Company) was founded in 1859. They began by selling coffee and tea by mail and delivery and later became the largest grocery chain in the world. In fact A&P was the largest retailer in the world by the 1940s. click here to learn more on Wikipedia.

A&P still exists, mostly in the New York area and is now owned, in part by a German company. It's a shadow of it's former self. Click here to access the current A&P website.
