Boxed And Costco Have Their Roots In A 1970s New Jersey A&P Store
FEBRUARY 6, 2018
A&P named its concept Warehouse Economy Outlet — or “Where Economy Originates” — and opened its first location in Pennsauken, New Jersey, in 1971. In another commercial , a spokesperson proclaimed, “It’s a brand-new concept: You shop at a modern supermarket with wild warehouse prices,” as the slogan “wild warehouse prices” flashed across the screen. If Amazon does end up acquiring Boxed, perhaps the new Costco card will be an Amazon Prime membership.
