He was joined in 1902 by his brothers, Howard and Edward, and they incorporated Hannaford Bros. Co. By 1920, the company became a leading produce wholesaler in northern New England. Hannaford then relocated to a new five-story warehouse on Cross Street. In 1939, with the purchase of Tondreau Supermarkets Inc., sponsor of Red & White stores in Maine, Hannaford expanded into the wholesale grocery business. Late in 1944, Hannaford Co. opened its first retail outlet under an equity partnership arrangement with Adjutor Tondreau.

The Hannaford name first took over from Shop 'N' Save on private labels in 1996. Five years later, stores in most of Maine, New Hampshire, Massachusetts, and Vermont assumed the name. As of 2006, only a small number of locations continue to use the Shop 'n' Save banner. Independently owned and operated franchises receiving merchandise through Hannaford's wholesale distribution continue to use the Shop 'n' Save name, mainly in smaller communities. In 2001, 5 Grand Union stores in New York were purchased and converted into Hannaford stores. In 2004, 19 Victory Supermarkets in Massachusetts and New Hampshire also were purchased and converted to Hannaford stores. (Source: en.wikipedia.org)

Hannaford started same-day grocery delivery with Instacart last year, which allows customers to choose from a fuller range of products, but can take a few hours or more for delivery. At the time, it said the Instacart program would complement its existing Hannaford To Go service, in which customers can order items online, have shoppers select and bag them, and then pick up the groceries curbside.
