How many of these have the same basic jingle as each other?

Although Safeway's added timpanis are a nice touch.

Hotel Bar Margarine?

Also, Wayne Knight (Newman from Seinfeld) sighting at 3:35?

Waldbaum's was just doomed.

A bored Google/Wikipedia search reveals:

Alpha Beta: Dead, name vanished in 1995.
A&P: Alive, surviving bankruptcy.
Shop Rite: Alive, pretty big in the northeast and the largest grocery chain in Greater Philadelphia.
Waldbaum's: Dying, stores closing all over as its parent company A&P emerges from bankruptcy.
Safeway: Alive, owned by Albertsons and now the # 2 grocery chain in the nation behind Kroger.
Ralph's: Alive, owned by Kroger.
Vons: Alive, owned by Safeway.
Pathmark: Hanging on, again hurt by parent company A&P. Boomers have fond memories of all those James Karen commercials.

In 1978 local Pathmark also had a homebrew C3PO made out of soup cans sprayed gold and placed over a mannequin, so I remain a fan.

ShopRite is nice, they have better prices than Stop & Shop and aren't quite as evil as WalMart.

Interestingly enough, this jingle:


...is still in use today, almost unchanged.
