The store renovations are geared toward creating a better overall shopping experience for Hannaford customers by updating store décor and expanding product variety in the store’s organic/natural and gluten-free offerings.
The updated store features a new butcher shop, a sushi bar offering fresh rolls made in-store daily, and a new chicken wing bar, featuring hot, ready-made wings.
“Hannaford Supermarkets is known for our signature combination of everyday low prices, quality foods and outstanding service,” said St. Albans Store Manager Dana Rocheleau. “This project makes that experience even better by introducing some great, new products and providing a fresh look to the whole store. We look forward to showing the St. Albans community the results of what we have been working on.”
On Saturday, February 22, the first 300 customers through the doors beginning at 7 a.m. will each receive a Hannaford mystery gift card valued anywhere between $5 and $250. Shoppers will enjoy giveaways and samplings throughout the store.
Shoppers can enter to win free Hannaford gift cards during the grand re-opening celebration. The grand prize winner will receive a $500 Hannaford gift card and will be selected by random drawing on March 22. Two second-prize winners will receive a $250 and five third-place winners will receive a $100 Hannaford gift card.
The grand re-opening celebration will continue into the month of March with a series of special offerings for shoppers, including giveaways, events and product samples.
On Saturday, March 15, Hannaford will host a Health and Wellness Day beginning at 10 a.m. Hannaford nutritionist Joanne Heidkamp will be available to provide tips on nutrition, healthy eating and recipe ideas.
