The Great Atlantic & Pacific Tea Company, Inc. Key Developments

A&P Mulls Store Sale

The Great Atlantic & Pacific Tea Company, Inc. (A&P) intends to sell the remaining 57 supermarkets and 17 liquor stores. The company is continuing to market the sale of those store leases to prospective grocery operators with the expectation that more of them will be sold, Ray Schrock, A&P lawyer, said. The company will try to find buyers for the stores in the next few months.

A&P Seeks Court Approval to Reject Union Contracts

A&P has asked U.S. Bankruptcy Court for permission to reject union contracts and implement what it called its final labor proposal, saying the provisions of existing collective bargaining agreements 'unreasonably impair' its ability to sell its stores and go out of business. The company is also seeking to terminate its obligation to pay benefits for 1,600 union and 500 non-union retired employees. A&P recognized a net liability of $16.6 million for those obligations in 2014. A&P, which is pursuing a sale of all of its stores, said prospective buyers' offers are contingent upon being free of labor obligations, and that a failure to execute those sales would trigger a liquidation sale greatly reducing the value of the estate. The retailer said it has been unable to come to an agreement with unions despite lengthy negotiations. A&P's final proposal, submitted to unions earlier, would reject CBAs for stores to be sold at the time of the completion of the sale; and reject the CBAs of stores that are not sold upon the time they close, unless the company and labor have worked out an alternative agreement.
