FARMER JACK SUPERMARKETS ANNOUNCES COMPLETION OF STORE RENOVATIONS IN COMMERCE TOWNSHIP

 DETROIT, Sept. 9 /PRNewswire/ -- An aggressive conversion/ renovation program is in full swing throughout southeastern Michigan culminating with the grand reopening of a newly renovated Farmer Jack Supermarket in Commerce Township. The store will officially reopen on Sunday, Sept. 12, announced Craig Sturken, regional vice president, Farmer Jack/A&P Supermarkets.
 The store is located in Commerce Township, at 3010 Union Lake Road near Commerce Road. The renovations were part of the company's capital plan to refurbish all of the company's supermarkets. The 53,000-square- foot Commerce Township store was updated with Farmer Jack Signature improvements as part of the company's $70 million capital improvement program in southeast Michigan. A total of 43 Farmer Jack/A&P food markets in the Detroit area have already been renovated with many more in the planning stages.
 "The remodeling and renovation of this store enables Farmer Jack to better serve the Commerce Township community. We continue to support Michigan's economy through the expansion and marketing of an optimum selection of groceries, products and services in communities throughout the state," Sturken said.
 The latest Farmer Jack renovated supermarket will carry over 26,000 products and will feature innovative specialty shops and time-saving services such as: daily hot entrees from the Family Deli; family packs and convenient oven-ready meats from the "Meat Market"; a specialty food section with expanded diet and health items; fruits and vegetables from around the world; a Customer Service Center enabling patrons to pay utility bills, purchase stamps and develop film; a pharmacy with a pharmacist on duty seven days a week allowing for prescriptions to be filled while customers shop; expanded frozen foods geared to the health- conscious consumer; and convenient self-service bottle and can return centers.
 "In 1992, 1993 and into 1994, Farmer Jack and A&P will have invested over $70 million in our Michigan stores through new construction, expansion and remodeling," stated James Wood, chairman, president and CEO of The Great Atlantic & Pacific Tea Company, Inc. (NYSE: GAP). "In 1992, the company completed two new stores, three enlargements, 10 major remodels and 25 refurbishments in Michigan. If you put all of these projects together with those completed in 1990 and 1991, you will see that practically all of our Michigan supermarkets will have been revitalized in the past few years."
