Sam, you are correct that shoprite is cheaper as well as having better products,but with that comes long lines having to spend more time shopping as well, probably the main reason that Pathmark has been underperforming even more was when WALMART there neighbor in the same parking lot that they share decided to turn 2/3s of the store into a supermarket selling fresh fruit/veggies to frozen and dairy products etc, pathmark was then finished, they barely got by when many of there customers shopped walmart and then they went to pathmark for groceries,now they stop shopping at pathmark and simply do there overall shopping at walmart the other supermarket in the area superfresh should be seeing more businees especially in the summmer when many would just go there to avoid shoprite because they are busy.

PM and Superfresh are both A&P. We shopped PM/SR 15%/85% locally for the last decade. Superfresh Manahawkin prices are closer to the Acme prices on LBI, rather than PM or SR. PM prices were better before A&P took them over 2 or 3 years ago. Walmart didn't kill the local PM, A&P did, trying to make it a Superfresh clone. SR was the best bang for the buck before they started imitating Superfresh adverts, like this and next weeks, and they've done it in the past. Seems the manufacturers are dictating promotions that make all the food chains look bad to consumers who are paying their own food costs, and don't want to be forced to buy product they don't want or need to get a credit on future purchases. SR customers know what I'm talking about. Already noticed that some of the entitled PM castoffs have been force hired by SR and their atitudes will not do SR, their customers, or SR's friendly employees any favors.
