The Hoboken A&P is now Acme, which is great news—especially to those who work there.
After months of speculation regarding the who/what/when of Hoboken’s centrally located supermarket, the Philly-area grocer announced that it would be coming into the facility at 614 Clinton Street as part of an agreement stemming from A&P’s declared bankruptcy.
This past weekend, the A&P sign came down and the Acme sign went up.
“Acme’s focus is on providing food solutions to the neighborhoods we serve,” says Danielle D’Elia, Manager – Communications & Government Relations for Acme. “We take great pride in providing really great stores that our customers love to shop.”
One of the biggest questions surrounding the transfer of ownership from A&P to Acme was the status of 104 employees, who were facing layoffs on November 26—Thanksgiving Day.
According to Acme’s D’Elia, “We hired substantially all of the store-level A&P employees at the Hoboken store.”
While the A&P store had reportedly been running down its inventory over the past few weeks, the new Acme location here in Hoboken is now stocked, staffed and fully operational.
