Hannaford Supermarkets has shared plans to acquire the Paradis Shop ‘n Save Supermarkets locations in Fort Kent and Madawaska, Maine. 

The stores are anticipated to begin operating under the Hannaford banner in spring 2024. 

The acquisition will mark the culmination of a long relationship between Hannaford and the Paradis family, who have served the community for about 80 years since first opening the business in 1947. While formerly independently-owned and operated, Paradis Shop ‘n Save Supermarkets are supplied and supported by Hannaford.

“The entire Paradis family is tremendously grateful to the Fort Kent and Madawaska communities, including the many associates and customers who have supported us for the past 77 years,” the Paradis family shared. 

“We’re confident that Hannaford will provide the same level of personalized service and outstanding products that make the Paradis shopping experience so special, while also maintaining our commitment to the community. We hope you will join us in welcoming Hannaford.” 

Under the Hannaford banner, the Fort Kent and Madawaska stores will offer store-brand products, such as Taste of Inspirations, Hannaford and Nature’s Promise, as well as an expansive selection of products from local farms and producers. 

Customers will also have the option to join My Hannaford Rewards, a program that allows members to earn a 2 percent reward on all private brand purchases and receive personalized coupons.

“We’ve long been committed to bringing the Fort Kent and Madawaska communities the high-quality, fresh products and exceptional service that are synonymous with Hannaford,” said Todd Bullen, VP of retail operations.

“We look forward to further deepening our ties with these communities as we officially welcome the stores to the Hannaford banner.”

The acquisition of the Fort Kent and Madawaska stores will bring the number of Hannaford locations to 189, including 68 in Maine.
