The Exeter store is one of six stores that closed earlier this year when Ahold-owned Stop & Shop exited the state in September. Hannaford said the 65,000-square-foot store is expected to employ 150 when it opens in the spring.

Hannaford has also acquired the lease of a former Stop & Shop in Bedford, N.H., but has not announced plans for that site, reports said.
