Donelan's Supermarkets was founded in 1948 in Littleton, MA by John E. Donelan. Over the next several years, Donelan's expanded in Acton, and Lincoln, MA. In 1985, John E. Donelan sold the business to his two sons John K Donelan and Joseph R Donelan.
In August 1992, Donelan's opened its fourth location in Groton, MA.
In July 1994, Donelan's added a fifth location in Pepperell, MA. Donelan's opened its sixth store in Wayland, MA in the summer of 1995. In August 1996, Donelan's relocated its Acton store from South Acton to its present location in Gould Plaza. Through the years, Donelan's has continually updated and remodeled our stores. Our most recent remodel was completed in 2009 when Donelan's expanded and renovated our Lincoln store by adding over 5000 square feet to its existing location by taking over space formerly occupied by the Lincoln Post Office. In Lincoln, we will be offering expanded produce, dairy and frozen food departments as well as offering brand new departments such as Hot Foods, Home Meal Replacement, and Sushi similar to those offered in our other locations. 2009 also saw a small renovation to our Pepperell location with new checkouts, a customer friendly courtesy booth, a wing bar, and expanded bakery section.
We are proud of our accomplishments and of the associates who have helped make them possible. We look forward to continued quality service to our customers and success for our company.
