It has been rumored for several months that the local store would ,:It)s,.,. but it could not be confirmed. ih,wever, three recent disclosures have led local residents to believe the store would soon fold. A news story appeared in newspapers across the nation two months ago which disclosed that A&P was considering closing as many as one-third of its 3,500 stores in order to modernize ,,perations. Several hundred A&P employees, members of Union Local 347, met in Clarksburg April 6 at the Stonewall Jackson Hotel. Jack Brooks. president of the local, read a list of regional stores that would close, it was learned. However, the exact dates of store ,:losses were not announced. That same week. the owner of the building leased to A&P here received a letter from A&P's real estate director in Columbus. lames W. Perrill said A&P did not disclose a closing date but the letter, in part, ".. in keeping with the Store Closing Program recently outlined by this company, we take this ,pp,rtunitv to notify you that the store.., will be closed." Perrill also said an employee from Vienna. James B. Oppe. cents,ted him and expressed interest in opening an independent rocerv story at the A&P location. An A&P spokesman in Columbus said the company was "'(h)nsidering (:losing the GlenviUe store, depending upon sut:cessfu| c ,mpletion of negotiations with the union, the lease, and pussible safe of the store." A&P signed a lease for the local store in December to run a full year, it was learned. A wire service story two months ago was the first official word of the impending store closings. I.I,. Scott. the new president of The Great Atlantic & Pacific Tea (:o., operator of the nation-wide A&P food chain, said the decision to close 1.250 stores "will enable us to relate more effectively to the + l)e,:lati,ms of today's consumers." "'Phasing out these mostly small, obsolete stores is an essential t irsl step to an accelerated program of rebuilding and updating our {at:ilities," he said. A&P. founded 150 years ago. currently employs more than l(}O.('gX) persons. The company said preliminary results show an uperatin loss in the fourth uarter of lot To offset closings, the New chain said about ltio large A&P supermarkets are being b t. Sewm persons are employed in the Glenville store, not including the new Manager, Clyde Bowen of Beckleg, who replaced Wilbur (:lark. Shwe employees have no idea when the store wffi close, it was h+,a rned. Many persons in Glenville. especially elderly residents, shop almost exclusively at the A&P because it is within walking distance ol the+Jr homes. Fisher. Irene Riddle. Rose Bell.

They're the best tasting ones. to be sure. "We knew where they were at," he said. "We been to Turkey Creek before." he added, smiling. This was the fifth annual ramp feed sponsored by tim Cedar~le Community Club. They use the proceeds of their dinner to repair the fifty-year-old school house, which has a stucco finish over a w~ frame that was streak-marked by workers using willow whips, it was learned, The building is used not only by the Club but also by the Cedarville Senior Citizens and area youth for recreation purposes. The old schoolhouse sits on a hill overlooking the town. On gray, cold. wet days. it looks like an old. deserted orphanage.
