The article features A&P's prototype fresh store in Midland Park, New Jersey. A&P CEO Eric Claus claims that the look of the prototype store, and the store itself, is a combination of the best things from Canada and the U.S. According to Claus, the company plans to convert all of its conventional stores into either the fresh store format or into another format that it calls discount. The delicatessen department of fresh stores exclusively carries Boar's Head products including pre-sliced lunch meats and cheeses, frankfurters and condiments.
