ACME Now Open in Downtown Ocean City

first_imgThe new ACME supermarket opened Nov. 15 on the 800 block of West Avenue in Ocean City with more than a week to spare before the Thanksgiving rush.The store conversion took only a few days as a former Super Fresh store became an ACME, according to Communications Manager Danielle D’Elia.She said that ACME hired “substantially all of the store-level A&P employees at the stores we acquired.”The Great Atlantic & Pacific Tea Co. (A&P), the Super Fresh owner, filed for Chapter 11 bankruptcy protection in July and won approval in bankruptcy court in September to sell 95 of its stores, including the one in Ocean City.ACME bought 71 of them for $246 million. ACME already owns and operates a supermarket at 34th Street and Simpson Avenue in Ocean City, which remains open as usual.D’Elia said all of ACME stores have sale prices applied automatically at checkout, so there’s no loyalty card needed for shoppers to take advantage of discounts. The store is advertising that flu shots are available on the premises. ACME Market is now open at the location of the former Super Fresh supermarket on West Avenue between Eighth Street and Ninth Street in Ocean City, NJ. The acquisition brings ACME’s total store count to 178  in New Jersey, Pennsylvania, Delaware, Maryland and now New York and Connecticut.last_img read more
