A&P Bankruptcy, Metrodome: Hot Trends

Stocks in this article: GAP

(Information on A&P's bankruptcy and the Metrodome collapse updated in today's Hot Trends article.)

NEW YORK ( TheStreet) -- "A&P bankruptcy" is a heavily searched topic today following the news that Great Atlantic & Pacific Tea (GAP) filed for Chapter 11 bankruptcy protection Sunday.

>> Grocery Chain A&P Files for Bankruptcy

The grocery chain better known as A&P listed debts of more than $3.2 billion and assets of about $2.5 billion in a petition the company filed in bankruptcy court in White Plains, N.Y.

The 151-year-old company was once the country's largest grocer. It now operates 395 stores under the A&P, Walbaum's and Pathmark names in the Northeast. The company said all of its stores will remain open.


"Metrodome" is a hot search topic today after the inflatable roof of the Minnesota Vikings' stadium caved in following heavy snowfall in Minneapolis on Sunday.

The football game between the Vikings and the New York Giants, originally scheduled for Sunday, has been moved to Detroit's Ford Field. The game will begin at 7:20 P.M. ET tonight.

Fans and players hope the roof will be repaired in time for the Vikings to host the Chicago Bears in their next home game on Dec. 20. This gives workers an eight day window to replace three damaged panels and repair the Teflon roof.


"Medicare" is a trending search topic this morning after the House passed a bill delaying the impending cut in pay to doctors for one year on Friday.
