The Food Emporium operates about 15 upscale supermarkets in densely-populated Manhattan and a store in Connecticut. A division of The Great Atlantic & Pacific Tea Company (A&P), Food Emporium stores are on the small side, measuring between 8,000 and 17,000 sq. ft. The grocery chain also operates an online shopping service (www.thefoodemporium.com), which offers pick up and home delivery service to shoppers in 33 ZIP codes in Manhattan, where it competes with Internet grocer FreshDirect. Food Emporium offers free delivery with $50 purchases (with some restrictions). It has maintained its store count for now, following years of its parent company converting its stores to other A&P banners.
