The letter specifies, "As part of the Chapter 11 process, ...the company has already signed contracts to sell 120 stores...identified on the attached Exhibit A." The Upper Montclair A&P store is listed on Exhibit A and has been slated to be sold to Stop and Shop. 

The letter further indicates, "As part of the Chapter 11 process, the company is actively marketing all the stores identified on Exhibit B." Exhibit B includes the Montclair Pathmark. 

If both of the stores are sold, the employees should receive notice from their prospective employer(s). If they are not rehired, the letter indicates the employee(s) will be notified during the "two week period between November 12, 2015 to November 26, 2015."
