Hannaford to snuff out tobacco products from all stores

All 183 Hannaford grocery stores are expected to stop selling tobacco products by this fall, according to Hannaford spokesman Eric Blom. Specific dates will vary for each store, Blom said. Hannaford Supermarkets is the latest in a series of major retailers that have announced that they’re phasing out tobacco products.

“We have been moving away from tobacco items for some time, due to our commitment around health, reducing the number of items sold. The decision to fully eliminate tobacco is part of our focus on providing more healthy products around the front of our stores, to support customers’ wellness,” Blom said.

Hannaford started in Portland, Maine in 1883. The company now has 183 stores across Maine, New Hampshire, Massachusetts, Vermont, and New York.
