There have been rumors circulating around Milford recently about the closing of the Hannaford’s Supermarket on East Main Street. Eric Bloom, the corporation’s media manager, told WMRC there is no truth to the speculation and there are no plans to close the store. Stop and Shop’s parent company is working on a merger between the two firms and it’s currently under review by the relevant regulatory authorities. Stop and Shop will by Hannaford’s for $10.4 billion and the two brands will remain separate. Stop and Shop has 131 stores in the state and Hannaford’s has 25.
