Up until 2015, Atlantic Highlands had two supermarkets -- the Foodtown that we saw yesterday, and this store, which was a 24,000 square foot 1970s-era A&P. Acme Style's post on the Foodtown also has a great look at this A&P when in business, but today it's been subdivided and nicely revitalized with these two new tenants. Clearly the Foodtown has long been the preferred store in town, as Acme Style explains, so no great loss here with the A&P closing. Up next, we're going to take a trip over the Highlands-Sea Bright Bridge out to Sea Bright, where we're taking a look at an independent store on The Independent Edition tomorrow!
