Ribbon cutting at Trader Joe’s at Market and Main

Doors to the new Trader Joe’s in Bedford, NH opened on Friday morning, March 29, 2019 after the official red ribbon was cut. The first official customer was Grace Freire, who was followed by a long-line of excited shoppers. The Trader Joe’s crew were lined up inside the door to welcome shoppers and hand out a complimentary reusable bag custom-designed for “Live Free” New Hampshire. The colorful bags had illustrations of the state flower, and an apple, along with a recipe for New Hampshire Maple Sundae from the kitchen of Trader Joe’s. The interior walls of the grocery store are also custom to New Hampshire with beautiful painted illustrations reflecting some of the state’s treasured places.

TFMoran’s president Robert Duval, project manager Chris Rice, and marketing coordinator Susan Bartley were honored to attend the ribbon-cutting with Market and Main developer Terry Robinson of Encore Enterprises and Trader Joe’s Director of Construction, Lisa Robertson. Trader Joe’s is the first retail store to open in the new 350,000sf space upscale mixed-use center “Market and Main”, located off of South River Road (US Route 3) at the former Macy’s site. This one story, 13,000 sf± national food chain store is the third to open in New Hampshire. TFMoran provided civil/site and traffic engineering, permitting, land surveying, landscape architectural, stormwater monitoring and construction support services for Encore Enterprises.  Additionally, TFMoran provided structural design for a two-level parking deck which is connected to the retail building. The project architect is Prellwitz Chilinski Associates and the construction manager is Hutter Construction of New Ipswich, NH. Site construction began for the development in March 2017.

(Market and Main mixed-use center is designed to be a pedestrian-friendly place with a village green and pocket parks throughout. Plans include a 1,200-seat deluxe cinema, an office building, a hotel, a variety of vibrant restaurants and retail shops, and two parking garages.)
