Grand Opening Planned for Turner Hannaford
Will highlight commitment to community and wide selection of affordable products

Turner, MAINE – The Turner Hannaford Supermarket & Pharmacy and its 90 associates will host a celebration on July 20-21 to recognize the opening of the environmentally innovative store, conveniently located on Snell Hill Road.

The new Hannaford will offer a full-service bakery, deli, seafood, meat, fresh produce and grocery departments, with an extensive selection of natural, organic and gluten-free items.  The pharmacy has a drive-through window for customers in a hurry, as well as a consultation room for those who need extra privacy or want a flu shot.

“Customers will appreciate the convenience of buying everything they need right here in Turner,” said Kim Kuusela, store manager. “We look forward to growing our partnerships with local residents and organizations in strengthening this community, today and in the years ahead.”

More than 50 of the store associates are newly hired from Turner and surrounding areas, with many additional associates transferring from other Hannaford locations because Turner is closer to home. The supermarket will make daily food donations to combat hunger locally; the store will regularly partner with area schools and community groups. Products grown locally will be offered through Hannaford’s Close to Home program, through farms and producers like Ricker Hill Orchards, Knowlton Corner Farm and Livermore Baking Co, maker of Lucarelli products.

What: Turner Hannaford Supermarket & Pharmacy Grand Opening
When: Starting at 7 a.m. on Saturday, July 20; 7 a.m. on Sunday, July 21
Where: Hannaford, 23 Snell Hill Road, Turner
Highlights: Saturday – food sampling, door prizes, give-away of more than 300 randomly valued gift cards, groceries-for-a-year sweepstakes and other activities; Sunday – 300 recycling totes given away; food sampling; door raffle prize.

In conjunction with the Grand Opening, five local organizations will each receive $1,000 donations: Leavitt Area High School band; the Turner Fire Department; Turner Rescue; Turner Food Pantry; and Rumford Group Homes, which helps local families in crisis.

Sunday’s focus is sustainability, in recognition of Hannaford’s commitment to the environment.  The Turner Hannaford is the first supermarket in the country to use exclusively CO2 refrigerant to reduce greenhouse gas emissions; heat generated by cooling equipment is reclaimed to help warm the store; energy use has been reduced substantially overall; waste generated by the store are far below that of the typical supermarket, thanks to recycling and composting efforts.

In this 35,000-square-foot store, customers will find prepared foods, pre-made salads and a wing bar for those times when they are on-the-go. Customers will find 126 feet of shelf space devoted to natural and organic products, in addition to a dedicated 24-foot-long gluten-free section.

“Hannaford is committed to offering customers great fresh products and a wide selection of the other grocery, health and beauty, and pharmacy items they need, at low everyday prices with excellent customer service,” Kuusela said.  “We encourage Turner-area residents to come see what their new store has to offer.”
