Many in the quaint community of North Conway have heard rumors swirling around town for years that Market Basket was going to open a brand-new store in their tourist-driven neighborhood. Now, those rumors have been confirmed! 'The Basket' (as I like to call it), could see construction start pretty soon.

According to the Conway Daily Sun the plans for the 69,845 square-foot store were filed with the Conway Town Hall earlier this month.

The new Market Basket store will be located on Settlers Green-owned property at the former site of 'Tennis Anyone,' and within one mile of a Walmart, Hannaford and Shaw's.

Robert Barsamian of OVP Management told The Conway Daily Sun earlier this week that Market Basket, which is based out of Massachusetts, 'will bring a whole other dimension to the community for both visitors and residents.'
