In Maine, the troubled Shops at Biddeford Crossing sustains another loss with the closure of Lowe's. A fax issued by corporate to employees at the store said that their last day of employment was October 16th. A phone message now directs customers to shop their location in Scarborough. This may be an ideal time for Market Basket to enter the Maine market, provided they are so inclined and the terms are favorable, though Target might have a thing or three to say about it.http://www.wgme.com/newsroom/top_stories/videos/wgme_vid_9625.shtml
WMTW this morning showed video of the Biddeford store facade; the Lowe's sign has already been taken down but the other telltale architectural elements are intact (for now, anyway.)http://www.wmtw.com/news/29503597/detail.html
Ellsworth is closing as well, though it didn't close over the weekend.
The locations in Manchester, New Hampshire (customers directed to Bedford, NH) and Haverhill, Massachusetts (customers directed to Salem, NH) have also closed. Hooksett, New Hampshire will close on November 13. Here's a story about the Manchester and Hooksett closures:http://www.unionleader.com/article/20111017/NEWS02/710179959
And a story about Haverhill:http://www.eagletribune.com/local/x744036436/Haverhill-Lowes-closes
I wonder if Market Basket would be interested in Manchester, too, though perhaps the downtown and Bedford locations are enough to keep them busy for now...
Claremont NH will close as well.
In Rhode Island, North Kingstown will close in about a month following sell-off of inventoryhttp://www.wpri.com/dpp/news/local_news/south_county/wpri-providence-lowe%27s-to-close-north-kingstown-store-jmq
In western New York Batavia will close on or about Jan 13http://thebatavian.com/howard-owens/employees-batavia-lowes-told-store-closing-layoffs-coming/28691
