Hannaford Supermarkets will host two grand reopening events — at the Rockland and Camden stores — starting at 7 a.m. on Saturday, June 15, to celebrate improvements to both stores.
Changes include the addition of hundreds of natural, organic and gluten-free products; new equipment, including heat-reclaiming refrigeration units; Camden added a pharmacy and on-site sushi chef; Rockland has a larger variety of cheeses and meats.
“These improvements are focused on meeting the needs of people living, working and visiting that specific community and shopping at that particular Hannaford store,” said Eric Blom, Hannaford spokesman, in a press release. “Customers will appreciate changes such as the new Camden entrance for easier in-and-out and Rockland’s expanded pharmacy waiting area.”
Hannaford invites customers to help celebrate the completion of this work at an event on June 15, with gift cards and other prizes; coffee, juice and treats; and $10,000 in donations presented to community groups.
The Rockland store is located at 75 Maverick St.; and the Camden store is at 145 Elm St.
The first 300 customers at each store will receive a gift card, randomly valued between $5 and $250. Customers throughout the day will have a chance in each location to enter drawings for a $1,000 gift card, beach-themed basket valued at $500 and other prizes. Coffee, juice and goodies will be provided and activities held.
With new flooring, fixtures, aisle-navigation signs and equipment, the stores also have been refreshed to improve the shopping experience.
