Where to find A & P branded coffees?

Before A&P closed their stores for years,for decades they sold their own branded coffee in bags in whole bean and you would grind it at the register.
Eight O'Clock the red bag
Red Circle the yellow bag
Bokar the black bag
they were prices with 8' oclock and the least expensive and Bokar the most,,,, each had a distinctly different taste.
8 O'clock,, the thinnest and least flavorful of all no matter how much grounds you used
Bokar was always edgy, winey and sharp,,,, strong but not a full rich flavor....
Red Circle was KING,, the best a fully rounded and deeply textured rich flavorful coffee....at a Very reasonable price.
that was the one they stopped making,,,,,
It is like trying to find a long lost love,,,,, and having no luck at all.......
okay,,,, any suggestions!??!
ps I think that the Eight O'clock " Columbian" coffee is excellent !
