Pittsfield’s historic store, Bud’s Shop & Save, has new owners

You know it’s been around forever if it’s still called Shop & Save.

I’m not going to lie, to this day I sometimes let the words “Shop & Save” come out of my mouth when referring to Hannaford. For real … when this change happened, how long did you keep saying Shop & Save? I bet it took months to get it right. What was it … at the end of the 90s that changed?

That said, that should give you a pretty clear indication of how long Pittsfield has been home to Bud’s Shop & Save. There are still a handful of independent S&S in this part of the state. For example, there is another at Dover-Foxcroft. But, now Bud’s in Pittsfield is taken over by a well-known local grocery dynasty.

The owners of Danforth in Hermon will take over Bud’s.

That’s right, the owners of Hermon’s Danforth Downhome supermarket have taken over Bud’s, according to a post on Bud’s Facebook page. Everyone involved seems extremely excited about this new venture. Bud’s was quick to point out that the Danforths would keep all the staff Bud’s currently has, which is great.

The average customer won’t really notice a change in day-to-day operations. Both stores are supplied by Hannaford, so the shelves will look essentially the same. Personally, having met members of the Danforth family a few times, Bud’s will be in good hands in the future.

The change is underway but becomes official in January 2022. Again, most people won’t really notice a change. Danforth has an exceptional reputation so it sounds like a win-win for owners and customers alike. Congratulations to all parties. And to the residents of Pittsfield!
