C.E.O. Ron Hodge has sent a message to customers through leaflets in shopping bags as well as on-line.
He apologizes for the ":concern and inconvenience": that was created when more than four million credit and debit cards became potential victims of fraud.
Illegal software installed on servers at nearly all of the company’s stores opened the door to the massive date breach earlier this year.
Hodge reassures customers that Hannaford has brought in top security experts to help guard against any further attacks, and the company is also considering the out of pocket expenses placed on customers who had to cancel their cards.
