Colonie store celebrates grand re-opening with special gift for first 300 customers

COLONIE, New York – Hannaford Supermarkets will unveil a series of renovations and improvements to its Colonie store located at 96 Wolf Road with a grand re-opening celebration on Saturday, April 21 at 7 a.m. The first 300 customers through the doors will each receive a Hannaford mystery gift card valued anywhere between $5 and $250.

The Colonie store renovations are geared toward creating a better overall shopping experience for Hannaford customers by creating a new café area, updating store décor, and expanding product variety in the store’s meat, seafood, organic/natural and gluten-free offerings.

“We’re excited to show shoppers the results of what we have been working on during the past few months. Each change was made to enhance the shopping experience for our customers,” said Hannaford Supermarkets Colonie Store Manager Angelo Malone. “I encourage the Colonie community to join us as we celebrate a new chapter for our store, while we maintain the same Hannaford everyday low prices, quality foods and service that customers expect.”

The new store layout will feature the one-queue checkout system, which asks customers to form a single line that feeds into a row of registers. The system is designed to provide customers with a fast and fair check-out experience.  

Additionally, the remodeled store includes a new café area. Situated next to the deli department and salad bar, the café features seating for 16 shoppers and a separate register for customer convenience. The updates also widely expand the store’s offerings of gluten-free and natural and organic products, as well as an increased variety in the meat and seafood departments. Samples will be available throughout the grand re-opening celebration.

Beginning Saturday, April 21, customers can also enter to win free groceries for a year from Hannaford. The grand prize winner will receive $5,200 worth of Hannaford gift cards. Two first prize winners will each receive a $400 Hannaford gift card and five second prize winners will each receive a $100 Hannaford gift card. Winners will be selected by random drawing and announced on June 4.

The grand re-opening celebration will continue throughout the months of April and May with a series of special offerings for shoppers, including giveaways, events and product samples.

On Tuesday, May 1, Hannaford will host a Free Health Screenings Day from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. Customers will have the opportunity to receive a free health screening and to meet a Hannaford pharmacist. Additionally, beginning on May 1 through June 30, 2012, all customers who join the Healthy Saver Plus pharmacy program at the Colonie store will have the enrollment fee waived.

On Saturday, May 5, customers are invited to learn about nutrition and healthy eating during a Health and Wellness Day from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. Hannaford Nutrition Coordinator Marianne Romano will be available to provide tips on healthy eating, recipe ideas and host tours of the store’s expanded gluten-free and natural/organic offerings. Customers will also learn how to identify healthy items by using Hannaford’s Guiding Stars nutrition rating system. Samples and giveaways will be available throughout the day.

On Saturday, May 19, Hannaford will host a Customer and Community Appreciation Day from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. Customers will be invited to enjoy a free BBQ lunch of hot dogs, hamburgers, chips and a drink, with an optional donation to the Colonie Youth Center. Family-friendly kids’ activities will be offered throughout the day, including face-painting and a coloring station where children can decorate their own grilling apron.
