A&P Completes Buyout of Pathmark

Montvale, N.J., The Great Atlantic & Pacific Tea Co. Inc. said Monday it completed its $665 million purchase of Pathmark Stores Inc. days after antitrust regulators cleared the deal with conditions.

The combined company will have about 450 stores in the Northeast with sales of $9.4 billion. A&P operates stores under the A&P, Super Fresh, Food Emporium and Waldbaum's names.

A&P agreed last week to sell six supermarkets in Long Island, N.Y. and the New York City borough of Staten Island as a condition of receiving the Federal Trade Commission's approval of the deal.
