Item 1.01   Entry into a Material Definitive Agreement
     On March 7, 2008 the Company entered into a definitive agreement with C&S Wholesale Grocers, Inc. (“C&S”) whereby C&S will provide warehousing, logistics, procurement and purchasing services (the “Services”) in support of the Company’s entire supply chain. This agreement replaces and supersedes three (3) separate wholesale supply agreements under which the parties have been operating. The term of the agreement is ten and one-half (10-1/2) years, which includes a six-month “ramp-up” period during which the parties will transition to the new contractual terms and conditions. The agreement provides that the actual costs of performing the services shall be reimbursed to C&S on an “open-book” or “cost-plus” basis, whereby the parties will negotiate annual budgets that will be reconciled against actual costs on a periodic basis. The parties will also annually negotiate services specifications and performance standards that will govern warehouse operations. The agreement defines the parties’ respective responsibilities for the procurement and purchase of merchandise intended for use or resale at the Company’s stores, as well as the parties’ respective remuneration for warehousing and procurement/purchasing activities. In consideration for the services it provides under the agreement, C&S will be paid an annual fee and will have incentive income opportunities based upon A&P’s cost savings and increases in retail sales volume.
     On March 10, 2008, the Company issued a press release relating to its new agreement with C&S, a copy of which is attached hereto and made a part hereof.
