    I think the information regarding the 800 N. Person Street A&P needs to be edited. I’m pretty sure that store was a Piggly Wiggly back in the ’60’s to maybe early ’70’s, and later became, according to one local friend, a Winn-Dixie, and then an IGA. I don’t recall whether it was also and A&P or not, prior to becoming a Piggly Wiggly. I remember it lastly as an IGA. Can someone check on this? Here’s a map link to the current building on the location: https://tinyurl.com/tscrelr Here’s a pic of what it looked like when it was a Piggly Wiggly: https://www.flickr.com/photos/north-carolina-state-archives/5096630246/in/photolist-8LnyCu-8LnyBh-8LnyzG-8Ljv6z-yhr7QH-QwnLYe-SYaAiN-SYaAih-SYaAgo-KmjzXK-TAUSAP

    This one was definitely an A&P.

    The store you’re thinking of was at 718 N. Person, which was maybe half a block south, as the list shows. It was a Piggly Wiggly around 1955-1957 (which is probably when the photo was taken) and had become a Winn-Dixie by 1958. It remained a Winn-Dixie through the mid-to-late 1980s. It may well have briefly been an IGA after Winn-Dixie. It’s no longer standing; there is an apartment building there now.
