Governor Hassan Statement on Store Closures

CONCORD - Governor Maggie Hassan issued the following statement today in response to recent store closure announcements by Stop & Shop and Shaw's:

"I recognize the impact that these pending store closures in New Hampshire will have on their employees, and I have directed the state's Rapid Response Team to provide all possible assistance to workers.

"The Rapid Response Team, led by the Department of Resources and Economic Development and encompassing a number of state agencies, is coordinating with the companies and will hold in-person sessions to connect affected workers with services and other job opportunities.

"New Hampshire is an all-hands-on-deck state, we pull together and pitch in to help those in need, and I will work to ensure that state government does its part."
