And the winner is…Pathmark! Under A&P’s umbrella, Pathmark received “highly dissatisfied” reviews on service, mediocre reviews on food quality and price, and poor reviews on cleanliness. Among shoppers surveyed, 75 percent had one or more complaints, and 31 percent experience three or more problems. One customer on Yelp who reviewed the Harlem, New York location went so far as to call Pathmark, “the bane of my existence.” Ouch.
