MONTVALE, N.J. (AP) - A&P; has told nearly 4,000 workers at 45 supermarkets in New Jersey that they face layoffs on Thanksgiving Day.

The Montvale-based company plans to sell the stores under its pending bankruptcy plan. Many of the stores are being sold to Stop & Shop and Acme Markets.

The notices are required under state law.

A&P; in July told another 867 workers at eight stores in New Jersey that they face layoffs on Sept. 19.

United Food and Commercial Workers Local 464A president John Nicollai tells NJ.com (https://bit.ly/1JmU47w ) it’s very tough. “It’s not numbers. It’s people.”
