The Great Atlantic & Pacific Tea Company was founded in New York in 1859 by George Huntington Hartford and George Gilman as the nation's first food chain.

A&P's Jersey City warehouse, designed by Howard Chapman in 1907, served as a main distribution center and corporate headquarters.

The reinforced concrete warehouse is a registered National Historic Landmark, the only building in Jersey City to hold this prestigious designation.
