Hannaford to purchase Bristol supermarket

Bristol, N.H. – Hannaford Supermarkets has reached an agreement to purchase Bristol Shop 'n Save from its current owner and will convert the store to a Hannaford this spring.  The store will be Hannaford's 36th supermarket in New Hampshire.
The 20,000-square-foot store has been a wholesale customer of Hannaford for 10 years and carries a wide range of Hannaford-brand products.
"Hannaford is excited to become part of the Bristol community and to begin serving customers in the Newfound Lake region," said Ron Leblond, Director of Operations for the area.  "Customers will continue to see familiar faces, locally sourced products and the Hannaford-brand items that they have come to expect."
As a company, Hannaford is committed to partnering with local communities, through ongoing food donations to hunger relief, involvement with school and civic groups, and contributions to local charities.
"I am so grateful for all the support we have received from the community during the last 10 years," said Greg Gorski, who owns the supermarket. "My goal was to create a gathering place for our customers where they could shop, visit, and always feel welcome. I want to thank my customers for giving us that chance and my team of associates for committing to meet that goal."
The supermarket is located at 505 Pleasant St. (Route 104) in Bristol.
