Power outage closes Whitten Road Hannaford meat, dairy department

AUGUSTA — A power outage that affected 64,000 Central Maine Power Co. customers Friday apparently forced a local grocery store to close its meat and dairy department Saturday.

The Hannaford supermarket on Whitten Road posted an employee at the store’s main entrance to tell customers that “the meat and dairy departments” were down, but that milk and eggs were still available. A store manager declined to comment, and a corporate spokesman for the grocery chain did not return a phone call Saturday.

By 4 p.m., CMP had restored power to all but 2,140 CMP customers scattered throughout the state, according to the power company. All power was expected to be restored by Saturday evening.
