A&P, once the largest food retailer in the nation, received negative marks on service and price, a neutral review on food quality and “fairly satisfied” on cleanliness. But 22 percent of shoppers surveyed said they experience three or more problems. The company, which includes supermarkets Food Emporium and Pathmark, filed for bankruptcy in 2010, but has recently come back as a private company with a new management team, new supplier and store renovations.
