Has “Container Made in England” and this verbiage on bottom of tin: “The A&P Economy Store – Circa 1912” “Pictured on this special commemorative tin is a replica of a typical A&P store-front used to introduce the new A&P Economy Store Concept in the early 1900’s. This revolutionary new concept marked the beginning of an amazing growth period for A&P when the number of stores rose from 400 to over 5,000 by 1921, and peaked at 15,709 in 1930. The stores emphasized top quality at low prices, eliminated expensive frills, (e.g. premiums, credit, home deliveries), and featured "cash and carry” terms only.”
