Hannaford to commemorate occasion with $7,500 donation to new Town of Milton Inclusive Playground
BALLSTON SPA, New York – Hannaford Supermarkets will unveil a series of renovations and improvements to its Ballston Spa store located at 11 Trieble Avenue with a grand re-opening celebration on Saturday, September 26 at 7 a.m.
The store renovations expand the Ballston Spa store by 8,000 square feet in an effort to offer an increased variety of products and provide a better shopping experience for customers. Shoppers will find an expanded selection of locally-grown produce; natural, organic and gluten-free products; as well as larger butcher shop, deli and seafood sections, including ready-to-cook options, a new salad and soup bar, and more local products.
“Hannaford Supermarkets is known for our signature combination of everyday low prices, quality foods and outstanding service,” said Ballston Spa Store Manager Heather Monroe. “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 Ballston Spa community the results of what we have been working on.”
The newly-remodeled store will also offer shoppers the opportunity to select their groceries online at Hannaford.com and pick up the order curbside through the Hannaford To Go service. Additionally, the updated store features a new drive-thru pharmacy and private consultation rooms for speaking with pharmacists and administering flu shots, which are available without an appointment.
On Saturday, September 26, 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. The first 100 children through the doors will receive a free set of markers and reusable bag, which they can custom design. Shoppers will enjoy giveaways and samplings throughout the store.
In recognition of the grand re-opening, representatives from Hannaford Supermarkets will present a donation of $7,500 to the new all-inclusive, handicapped-accessible Town of Milton playground located at Burgess-Kimball Park on Rowland Street, across the street from the Ballston Spa store.
The 17,000 square foot recreation park, which will open the week of October 5, will offer special ramps for wheelchairs, sensory panels for children with ADHD and autism, transfer platforms, and swings that are accessible for children with disabilities, including one that holds a wheelchair.
The donation from Hannaford assisted in the purchase of three pieces of equipment for the new playground: a tree swing; an enclosed tot seat; and an expression swing, which is the first of its kind in the Capital Region and promotes intergenerational interaction through a face-to-face design allowing adults and children to swing together.
The grand re-opening celebration will continue with a Close to Home Day on Saturday, October 3 from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. Shoppers will have the opportunity to meet and sample products from local vendors that are part of the Hannaford Close to Home program. Customers can also enter to win a free kayak.
The Ballston Spa store is open daily from 7 a.m. to 11 p.m. Pharmacy hours are Monday through Friday from 8 a.m. to 8 p.m.; Saturday from 9 a.m. to 7 p.m.; and Sunday from 9 a.m. to 6 p.m.
