That Was Fast: Hannaford Going in Where Shaw’s Just Closed in Scarborough, Maine
Shaw's isn't even closed yet!
Now Hannaford Supermarket will have two locations in Scarborough. They have the Oakhill Plaza Hannaford and fear not - that one will stay open. Now you'll have two options to shop at Hannaford in Scarborough.
This location on Payne Road in Scarborough was the second closing of Shaw's recently. The first was in Westbrook across from Rock Row and across from the Market Basket. Hard to compete against that. This Shaw's was one of the older Shaw's in the chain and as hard as it was to close, it just wasn't that profitable.
There are two kinds of Mainers. Shaw's or Hannaford Mainers. I live close to a Shaw's so, I am often there. I do find some deals and love that I have a big grocery store about a mile away from my house. But it's just for the last-minute stuff. Deep down I'm a Hannaford shopper. I have been since I moved to Maine over 30 years ago.
Hannaford Vice President of Operations Todd Bullen told WGME 13,
Growing our business in our own backyard is a huge point of pride. We look forward to making it even easier for Scarborough-area customers to do their grocery shopping for the week or pick up that one item they need.
But just because Shaw's is closing Wednesday, 9/21/22, don't expect to start shopping at Hannaford the next day. Construction won't start until early next year with an opening for the summer of 2023. They will also be employing 150 people too! Then, let the shopping begin!
