Town & Country Market in Winslow is where it all began. And it’s showing its age – so we’ve got a remodel well under way. The store will remain open throughout the project, which is expected to be completed in summer 2015. And when it’s all finished, it will be one-story market with improved layout and flow, increased seating and many new features.

“We still want to be the place you go when the power goes out, to see your friends and neighbors, to eat well and get inspired and connect with our staff,” CEO Bill Weymer said.
The store opened Aug. 29, 1957, on land where founders Ed Loverich and brothers John and Mo Nakata played ball together as boys. Many Loverich and Nakata family members can still be found working in the offices and aisles of the market.
The store was expanded in 1990, adding the espresso bar and expanded floral department. This remodel will not significantly change the store’s footprint, but will accommodate moving Bulk Foods, Wine & Spirits, Housewares and Health & Body Care areas upstairs.
