SCARBOROUGH, Maine -- Hannaford Bros. Co. here, which is expected to name its first ever advertising agency of record next month, will choose from among three finalists to handle its $4 million ad account, according to published reports.

New York's Berenter Greenhouse & Webster and Portland, Maine-based Via, which has worked for the Northeast regional grocer on recent projects, both failed to make the final cut.
Hannaford operates more than 150 supermarkets and combination food-and-drug stores in Maine, New Hampshire, Massachusetts, New York, and Vermont.
