Mall Area Grocery Store to Close 

One of the two Shaw’s grocery stores in Bangor is closing.

Company managers notified the 120 employees at the Springer Drive location on Tuesday that the store will close January 31st.

Plans for a new store on Stillwater Avenue were formulated almost a year-and-a-half ago, but are currently still on hold.

Shaw’s leases the building near the Bangor Mall.

Shaws says they are working to transfer as many employees as they can to nearby locations which include Main Street in Bangor, and the company’s store in Ellsworth.

Those employees who can’t be moved to other positions will be offered severance packages.
