MALTA, New York – Hannaford Supermarkets will celebrate the grand opening of its new Malta store, located at 43 Round Lake Road, with a two-day community celebration on Saturday, May 19 and Sunday, May 20.

The new Hannaford will serve the growing Malta community and employ about 100 associates, adding jobs to those being created locally by the high-tech manufacturing investment also taking place in the store’s backyard.

The opening of the Malta Hannaford Supermarket & Pharmacy is one of two grand openings planned by the company in New York that day. Hannaford also will open a new store serving the Columbia County town of Livingston, N.Y., on May 19. The two openings will bring Hannaford’s total number of stores in New York to 49.

“Hannaford Supermarkets is excited to bring our signature combination of everyday low prices, quality foods and outstanding service to Malta residents,” said Hannaford Supermarkets Malta Store Manager Steve Robyck. “I encourage the Malta community to join us as we celebrate the grand opening of our new store. We look forward to showing shoppers the results of what we have been working on.”

A native of Burnt Hills/Ballston Lake, Robyck will return to the greater Capital Region to manage the Malta store. He has been an employee of Hannaford for 15 years and most recently served as a store manager in Maine.

The new 35,000-square-foot store includes a number of features designed to create an outstanding overall shopping experience for customers, including a butcher shop, produce and seafood departments, a bakery and deli, a full-service pharmacy and a wide variety of organic/natural and gluten-free offerings.

The grand opening celebration will begin on Saturday, May 19 at 7 a.m. The first 300 customers through the doors each will receive a Hannaford mystery gift card valued between $5 and $250 and a personalized reusable bag. Customers also will have the opportunity to win a $50 Hannaford gift card once every 10 minutes between noon and 2 p.m.

Beginning Saturday, 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. Four first-prize winners will each receive a $400 Hannaford gift card and 10 second-prize winners will each receive a $100 Hannaford gift card. Winners will be selected by random drawing and announced on July 7.

Samples of recipes created with Hannaford private-label products will be available throughout the day.

The celebration will continue on Sunday, May 20 at 7 a.m. when the first 200 customers will each receive a free Taste of Inspirations Summer BBQ Tote featuring a number of grilling essentials, such as Taste of Inspirations Mesquite and Lemon Pepper marinades; a silicon basting brush; and a $2 off coupon for a Taste of Inspirations product.

In recognition of the grand opening, Hannaford Supermarkets will present a donation of $1,000 to each of the following community organizations: Chango Elementary School; Charlton Heights Elementary School; Francis L. Stevens Elementary School; Round Lake Library; and the David R. Meager Malta Community Center.

The Malta store is open 24 hours a day, seven days a week. Pharmacy hours are 8 a.m. to 8 p.m. Monday through Friday; 9 a.m. to 7 p.m. on Saturday; and 9 a.m. to 6 p.m. on Sunday.
