Private Brands / Re: A & P Brands
« Last post by APpreservation on January 29, 2019, 03:54:22 pm »
Ah, yes. I think everyone misses those days! A&P used to have factories all over New York and New Jersey for their manufactured goods. The locations I know of are:
- Horseheads, NY (the largest "Ann Page" manufacturing plant-- at a whopping 1,500,000 square feet! Opened in 1965)
- Indianapolis, IN
- Paterson, NJ
- Toronto, ON
- Baltimore, MD

(But I'm sure there's a ton more!)

Private Brands / A & P Brands
« Last post by mainehank on January 26, 2019, 02:45:14 pm »
I really miss the days of real private store brands.  Up until the 1970's, chains such as A&P, Safeway, Kroger, and Winn Dixie actually manufactured most of their store brands.  In the case of both A&P and Safeway, food companies claimed they were being squeezed out of vital shelf space by the store brands!  These stores would have two, three, and sometimes four different name labels, depending on the quality of the product.  National brand producers also complained how the chain stores would often imitate the national labels.  It was expensive for the national brands because they did national advertising and customers would come into a store to not find the product, but buy the store brand because of how similar it looked to the national brand.

The last chain store to carry on this practice was Winn Dixie until it's first bankruptcy in the early 2000's.  I think Kroger still bottles it own soft drinks.  I know Publix had its own dairy and ice cream plants in Central Florida and outside Atlanta.
