Now, and after May 18th (when ceiling prices become effective), all =-,^^^=-^==1 A&P Super Markets and A&P Food Stores will continue to give you real low prices on fine foods every day, just as they have been doing. The new "ceiling price" regulation will not alter in any way A&P's low price policy. This means that every day at A&P you will continue to get the best foods the markets afford at our lowest possible prices. O And here is another important fact to remember. FOOD PRICES WILL NOT BE IDENTICAL IN ALL FOOD STORES on and after May 18th. Prices will continue to differ in food stores on the same articles—just OUR CUSTOMERS SAVE MONEY A&P, during the last eight years, has made big reductions in its operating costs. These savings have been passed along to our cus tomers, so that today they have 9c more of every food dollar to spend than they did in 1933. It is A&P's policy to continue to conduct its business as economically as possible, thus to give you the utmost for every food dollar you spend at A&P Stores.
