Pathmark Stores, Inc., is a supermarket chain in New York, New Jersey and Philadelphia metropolitan areas, operating as a single segment. The company operated 140 supermarkets located in New Jersey, New York, Pennsylvania and Delaware in FY 2006. Many of its stores are Pathmark Super Centers, which offer an expanded selection of general merchandise and foods. Nearly all Pathmark Super Centers have pharmacies, and more than half have in-store banks.

The supermarket chain briefly operated under Chapter 11 bankruptcy in mid -2000, emerging after two months as a public company and $1 billion lighter in debt. The Yucaipa Companies, led by supermarket investor Ron Burkle, acquired 48 percent of Pathmark’s shares in 2005. A&P, Pathmark’s rival in the Northeast, has agreed to acquire the chain for about $1.3 billion in a deal that will create a 550-store supermarket chain. Pathmark generated about $3.97 billion in net sales during FY 2006.

Approximately 19,748 of Pathmark’s 22,400 employees are represented by the UFCW.
