Food Fair arrived in Richmond around 1960 with new modern stores. Later they underwent a name change as did the rest of Food Fair to Pantry Pride. The Pantry Pride stores in Richmond were sold to A&P which continued to operate them under the Pantry Pride name until the remaining stores were converted to Super Fresh stores in 1986. A&P exited the Richmond market altogether on January 30, 1999.
