Locals unite to save Aroostook town’s only grocery store

STOCKHOLM, Maine — When neighbors realized that Stockholm’s only grocery store might not survive past Christmas, they decided it wouldn’t.

Anderson’s Store, at 327 Main St., has been a landmark for the city since brothers John and Lewis Anderson established the business in 1904. The Anderson family expanded the grocery store over the years to include a bakery and a Butcher shop.

Anderson’s is still a go-to destination for residents of and around Stockholm and summer and winter tourists looking for fresh food and drinks on the go. But in recent months, owners Deb Paiement and Phil Andrews have struggled to get by.
