    According to the November 9, 1960 edition of the Durham Morning Herald, A&P had the following locations in Durham:

    404 Morgan Street
    621 Broad Street
    410 Chapel Hill Street
    316 South Driver Street
    1109 East Main Street

    A&P dominate grocery store in Durham at this time. Winn Dixie had just two locations, and Kroger had only one location
