Hannaford Supermarket expanding with two new locations
Wise supermarket shoppers have made it clear: They want the availability of self-checkout options, more grab-and-go meals, and online grocery access. They should be able to choose between organic, natural and gluten-free products. And if possible, all of the above should be offered at a reasonable price.
