NEW YORK, NY - DECEMBER 13: A person on a bike passes a The Food Emporium grocery store owned by A&P December 13, 2010 in New York City. Venerable grocery chain The Great Atlantic & Pacific Tea Company, better known as A&P filed for bankruptcy protection this weekend, under mounting debt and structural problems. The company founded in New York in 1859 owns close to 400 supermarkets in the Northeast under the names of A&P, Pathmark, Food Emporium, Waldbaum's, and others.
