The Food Basics in North Bergen, New Jersey.

Food Basics is a no-frills supermarket chain originally created by A&P Canada. North Bergen is a township in Hudson County, New Jersey, United States. ... A&P Canada is a Canadian supermarket company owned by Metro Inc. ...

Food Basics carries all the major national brands as well as three of its own private label brands. Master Choice is the company's line of gourmet products, Equality (for average everyday products), and Basics For Less; their line of large economy-sized products. The A&P storewide brands of America's Choice and Health Pride are also present.

In 2001, A&P brought the Food Basics concept to the United States, changing a Passaic, New Jersey store from an A&P to a Food Basics.

Super Fresh is a chain of supermarkets owned by A&P. The Super Fresh name was introduced in 1982, but the parent company had already existed for over 120 years (it was founded as early as 1859). ...

In 2006, A&P revived Food Basics, opening a new prototype in Glassboro, New Jersey. The new format emphasizes every day low pricing or best pricing, fresh produce, cut meats, and bakery. New signage, colors and wide aisles are many of the improvements made in this new prototype. Glassboro highlighted in Gloucester County. ...
