Hannaford Opens New Store, Completes Upgrades at Six Existing Locations During First Half of 2023

SCARBOROUGH, Maine – During the first half of 2023, Hannaford Supermarkets continued to enhance the overall shopping experience for customers by welcoming the addition of a new store in its eastern footprint and completing upgrades at a total of six existing stores.

The highlight of the first half of the year occurred in May when Hannaford opened its 186th store in Blue Hill, Maine. The new store includes a variety of features designed to create a convenient shopping experience, including an expansive selection of signature fresh, high-quality food. The new Blue Hill store also offers a full-service pharmacy.

In addition to the Blue Hill grand opening, Hannaford completed six remodels at stores in Maine, Massachusetts and Vermont between March and June 2023. The projects focused on enhancing customer convenience, including the addition of 24 self-checkout registers and the installation of five private pharmacy consultation rooms.

“The opening of our Blue Hill store marks an exciting moment for Hannaford, and we are grateful for the warm welcome and support we have received from the community,” said Hannaford Supermarkets Vice President of Retail Operations Todd Bullen. “These projects support Hannaford’s commitment to delivering fresh, high-quality food, dependable value and exceptional service to our customers. We thank the many associates who supported this work, and look forward to continuing to enhance the shopping experience of our customers.”

The following Hannaford stores marked the completion of their remodels during the first half of 2023:

– Derry Hannaford in Derry, N.H., which now features an increased assortment of fresh-cut fruits and vegetables, as well as new drink options, such as kombucha, juices and smoothies.
