Great Atlantic & Pacific Tea Co Files for Bankruptcy (GAP)
NO this is not the same company as “The Gap” the clothier which ticker is GPS. This company is a grocery and who’s margins have been affected by strong competition and profit margin issues.

11 bankruptcy in New York with more than $1 billion in assets and more than $1 billion in debt, according to court documents.
