Pequannock / Pompton Plains A&P via WikipediaAs of this writing, the Pequannock A&P and all other stores in the lot are closed for business indefinitely as a result of flood damage caused by Hurricane Irene.  It is not clear whether or not any will return, when asked, spokespersons for all businesses reached (including A&P) stated it was too early to tell.

The flood waters did breach the A&P directly, blowing in a garage door and reaching about 2 feet at the front of the store and much higher in back.  From the parking lot, the damage looked extensive.

All the food has been removed and put into dumpsters in the past week and there is a sign on the door directing prescription-holders to the Pompton Lakes A&P.

Anyone with more information, please comment.
