ⓘ Wellby Super Drug

Wellby Super Drug was a chain of 41 drug stores that operated in Maine, New Hampshire and Vermont from 1973 until 1992. It was a wholly owned subsidiary of Hannaford Brothers, northern New Englands largest grocer.

After the Maine State Legislature repealed the Blue Laws prohibiting stores greater than 5.000 square feet 460 m 2 in size to be open for business on Sunday, Hannaford made the decision to convert its smaller Shop N Save grocery stores to Super Shop N Save, which would include floor space for a pharmacy. Because the Shop N Saves were in the same communities as Hannafords Wellby stores, Hannaford decided to sell the pharmacy chain.

In 1992, Wellby Super Drug was sold to Rite Aid, which continues to operate in many of the former Wellby locations to this day.
