LAKE PLACID - The Hannaford supermarket chain opened a new store in Lake Placid on April 16. The store's Cold Brook Plaza location, which is just down the street from Price Chopper, puts it in direct competition with the other regional grocery giant.
Both stores are approximately 40,000 square feet. Hannaford will include a butcher shop, produce and seafood sections, and a deli and bakery combined. Hannaford will also include a pharmacy, something Price Chopper doesn't have. The store will eventually employ 80 to 100 people, only 20 to 25 of whom will work full-time.
