Market Basket expanding into Maine

BIDDEFORD, Maine (AP) — A Massachusetts supermarket chain has announced its first expansion into Maine.

Biddeford city officials say Tewksbury, Mass.-based Market Basket is scheduled to open a store next fall.

Economic Development Director Daniel Stevenson tells The Journal Tribune (http://bit.ly/Rt8Gy9) the family-owned company plans to invest $11 million to redevelop the former Lowe's store at The Shops at Biddeford Crossing. The building has been empty since Lowe's closed in 2011.

Stevenson says the store will bring up to 150 full-time jobs and hundreds of part time positions.

Market Basket has 69 stores in Massachusetts and New Hampshire.
