Local Hannaford store to host celebration
Investment brings new products and services to Auburn supermarket and pharmacy
Auburn, ME – The Hannaford store and pharmacy in Auburn will host Grand Reopening events beginning on Friday, February 15 through Sunday, March 10 to celebrate the completion of renovation projects that added variety and brought many new services and items to the supermarket. The celebration kicks off four weeks of customer appreciation events to mark the completion of major renovation projects at the Auburn store.
The store has been updated throughout and has a fresh new look. Fresh food is highlighted in the new design, and the Produce Department now has the abundant feel of a green grocery store within the supermarket. The supermarket has expanded its variety of products, with many new items, including more than 2,000 organic and natural offerings and many more dairy and frozen items as well as a “pick your own 6-pack” of beer section.
Aimed at providing fresh and convenient options for customers who are busy, the store has expanded its Kitchen, where customers can order fresh-made and other meal options to take home, including in store prepared sushi, hand-battered fried chicken, a hot bar with wings and entrees, and freshly prepared sandwiches and salads. For the first time, the store is also offering a hot breakfast bar until 10:00 a.m. daily. The seafood department has added a variety of freshly cut grab and go seafood.
“Our customers already love that the Auburn Hannaford is convenient to where they live and work. With this store investment, we’ve upped that value by providing even more variety and options for a full grocery shop so that a meal can be prepared at home or grab and go one of our many in-store prepared meals to bring home to their family,” said John Gibson, Auburn Store Manager. “We’re excited to bring more products and conveniences to our customers while also keeping our commitment to low everyday prices.”
Additionally, in conjunction with the Customer Appreciation Events, the Auburn Hannaford is helping to fight hunger locally by giving $4,000 toward the BackPack Program at Walton Elementary and Sherwood Heights Elementary schools.
Gibson added, “It’s really meaningful for the Auburn Hannaford team to be able to help our local school children have access to healthy and nutritious food on the weekends and during school vacations.”
