On November 6, Hannaford Bros. Co. closed the Shop 'n Save supermarket at Third
On November 6, Hannaford Bros. Co. closed the Shop 'n Save supermarket at Third & Union in Bangor, and the very next day held a grand opening for the new Airport Mall Shop 'n Save. Residents of downtown Bangor said the closing of the area's only grocery supermarket was detrimental to the neighborhood and would adversely affect its sense of community, while store owners said the closing was an inevitable result of a series of public decisions which led to the opening of the Wal-Mart store outside of town.
