Compare Foods Supermarket Owner: Teofilo de Jesus Opened: 2005 Previous Tenants: A&P > Presidente Supermarket Cooperative: Associated Supermarket Group Location: 161 Jefferson St, Passaic, NJ Photographed: July 2020 We're here at Hoover and Jefferson at the first of our two spectacular Passaic stores here on The Market Report. A former centennial A&P, which was later taken over by an independent store, has today been renovated into a simply gorgeous Compare Foods. Compare Foods has reversed the store, with the entrance and exit facing the back of the store and the parking lot. The checkouts take up the space once occupied by A&P's backroom, with the former front-end having been expanded into a spacious produce department. You enter on the left side of this back wall to a huge hot food bar, bakery, and deli in the front left corner with butcher and meats along the left side. Produce lines the back wall of the store, with frozen and dairy in the last aisle.
