HANNAFORD TO BUILD BRUNSWICK SUPERMARKET

New store will create more than 150 jobs; offer customers time-saving features, including a drive-through pharmacy and Hannaford To Go online ordering

Brunswick, NY — Hannaford Supermarkets today announced plans to build a store at 9 Lord Avenue in Brunswick, NY, deepening its ties with that community and offering customers a convenient new location.

The store will be built at the intersection of Route 7 and Lord Avenue.  Hannaford will continue to operate the 126th Street Hannaford Supermarket & Pharmacy at its existing location and completed significant upgrades there last year to make the shopping experience even better for customers.

The new 49,000-square-foot store on Lord Avenue will provide the great fresh food and variety for which Hannaford is known, including thousands of natural and organic products, as well as unique store-brand offerings such as Taste of Inspirations, Hannaford and Nature’s Promise.

The supermarket also will offer a full-service pharmacy, with drive-through; Hannaford To Go, a service that allows customers to select items online and pick up their orders at the store; and a huge selection of ready-to-cook and ready-to-eat items.

“This new location will make it even easier for Brunswick-area customers to do their grocery shopping for the week or pick up that one item they need,” said Eric Blom, company spokesman.  “We are proud to be investing further in New York, bringing new jobs to the area and strengthening our relationship with the community.”

The Lord Avenue Hannaford & Pharmacy will offer the everyday low prices that customers expect from their local Hannaford, with the added benefit of My Hannaford Rewards, a program that allows users to earn a 2 percent reward on all private brand purchases and receive personalized coupons.

“The new store will be an active member of the Brunswick community, contributing to local nonprofit organizations, civic groups and hunger-relief efforts,” Blom said.  Last year, Hannaford donated more than 23 million pounds of rescued food to help feed hungry individuals in the cities and towns it serves.

The store is expected to employ about 155 full- and part-time associates when it opens. It will be Hannaford’s 52nd supermarket in New York.  The company was founded in Portland in 1883 and is headquartered in Scarborough, Maine.
