South Burlington, Vt. – Hannaford Supermarkets today announced that all grand opening celebration activities at its new Shelburne Road store, including gift card giveaways and sampling, will be postponed and will not occur this Saturday.

The store, located at 935 Shelburne Road in South Burlington, will open on Saturday, March 21 to serve the community’s need for food and medicine. As with all Hannaford stores, purchase limits are in place for certain products due to increased demand.
