Pathmark Opens Second Price-Impact Format

Edison, N.J. Pathmark is re-opening one of its stores in Edison, N.J., under a new format that focuses on low prices, according to the Star Ledger.

The price-impact format is similar to a strategy Pathmark followed about 30 years ago, the report said. This includes lower prices on many items with weekly sales.

Executives of Great Atlantic & Pacific Tea, the parent company of both A&P and Pathmark, said up to 20 Pathmarks could be converted to the new format this year.
