We are proud to carry Hannaford brand products and be affiliated with Hannaford’s extensive distribution network. At the same time we are proud to be an independently owned grocery store which allows us to source additional products from a variety of suppliers including local, regional and even international networks!
Through our relationship with Hannaford, we can offer you the same products that you’ll find in most large metropolitan areas and in most cases around the state at the same price or sometimes even better. Being affiliated with Hannaford, a 132 year old Maine company, means we share their incredible buying power and the relationships they have formed with producers, growers and shippers. Hannaford’s success has grown to 180 stores located in Maine, New Hampshire, Vermont, Massachusetts and New York with over 26,000 associates employed.
Hannaford was acquired in 1999 by the Delhaize Group, the 9th largest supermarket chain in the world with 3,400 stores in 11 countries on three continents. Delhaize America has 1,500 stores located on the eastern seaboard of the United States with names such as Hannaford, Food Lion, Bottom Dollar Foods, Reid’s, Harvey’s and Sweetbay Supermarkets.
We believe that the relationships that we have formed at Bud’s is good for everyone. Our grocery selection and pricing is the best it can be, with daily decisions being made right here in Central Maine.
We truly hope we’ve explained what it means to be locally owned family grocery business who is very pleased and extremely proud to be a Hannaford Independent. We can be the “best of both worlds” for our customers.
