A beautiful summer evening sky is the perfect backdrop to today's former A&P at the northern part of the Mayfair neighborhood. It appears that the store was originally constructed as a 15,000 square foot arched roof store, then later expanded out both sides to its present 23,000 square feet. If I had to guess, I'd bet that this store was constructed right before the centennial era, then expanded right after the centennial era, since there's no indication this store ever had any centennial characteristics.
It doesn't appear that this store made it to the 1983 conversion of all Philadelphia area A&Ps to SuperFresh, but unfortunately my reliable source JoshAustin610 has little more information to offer about the supermarket. Looks like it's been clothing retailers since. A&P might not be here anymore, but there's still a supermarket just across the street from this store. Check it out on The Independent Edition tomorrow!


  1. This A&P opened on December 4, 1957, per that day's edition of The Philadelphia Inquirer. Even though this building obviously isn't a Centennial, I am aware of a number of Centennials that opened during the second half of 1957.

    Though I was unable to ascertain an exact closing date, I can tell you that June 4, 1978 was the last day I saw the 7201 Roosevelt Blvd. location mentioned in an A&P ad appearing in The Philadelphia Inquirer. The next A&P ad was dated June 7, and there was no mention of this location.

    After I looked at historic aerial photos, I'm not sure this building was ever expanded. If an expansion did occur, it was a very tiny one.
