The Grand Opening event is scheduled for August 8th. This is a 20,000 square foot facility.

According to an article at Fosters.com:

"The grand opening event begins at 7 a.m. and the first 300 customers will receive Hannaford gift cards randomly valued between $5 and $250; local foods sampling; giveaways; music; and other activities."

A press release from Hannaford says "the store will offer a wide assortment of fresh produce; a walk-in beer cooler; gluten free, natural and organic items; and thousands of other fresh, frozen and packaged grocery items."

Hannaford is already making friends in the neighborhood by offering up $3,000 to the North Berwick Fire Department for equipment, $6,000 for flags and $650 to the North Berwick Little League.
