Pathmark Employment Opportunities

 
The name Pathmark was established in 1968 by its founding fathers, Herb Brody, Milton Perlmutter and Alex Aidekman. This new company would provide a "path" for easy, one-stop shopping, and be the "mark" of one of the most successful supermarket retailers in the United States.

The company was a pioneer in the "super center" concept, which combined traditional grocery and perishable items with expanded offerings on non-foods, including small appliances. Pathmark was the first supermarket company in the Northeast to operate its stores 24 hours each day, 7 days a week. Also, the company was among the first in the Northeast to utilize scanning registers at the checkout.

 As of January 2005, Pathmark operates 142 supermarkets in the New York-New Jersey and Philadelphia metropolitan areas, employing over 27,000 associates. The company has stores that are located in both urban and suburban marketplaces, and is particularly noted for its historical commitment to opening stores within the inner-cities of its trading area.
