WESTBROOK — The annual Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade is a normal part of most people’s holiday. Unless, of course, you’re performing in it. A group of 13 local dancers has been chosen to be on the other side of the television screen this year. The teenagers from Westbrook’s Drouin Dance Center will be among 600 performers dancing in next week’s parade.
WESTBROOK — The city’s first bookstore, which will also serve beer and coffee, is expected to open in its downtown location in January. The owners of Quill Books and Beverage announced earlier this month that it will be located at One Westbrook Common. The 2,600-square-foot space is next to Blue Note Park and behind Westbrook House of Pizza. Owners Allison Krzanowski and Matthew Irving announced their plans for the combination bookstore/coffee shop/pub over the summer.
WESTBROOK — Walmart will no longer be part of The Ridge-Westbrook plaza and will instead be replaced by Market Basket. Waterstone Retail Development announced Thursday that the Massachusetts-based grocery store chain would be the anchor for the project. It will be the second Market Basket location in Maine. “I am ecstatic beyond belief that we’ll have Market Basket for this project,” said Anton Melchionda, a managing partner at Waterstone. “We’re very grateful and fortunate they chose Westbrook.

Muck Rack makes it simple to find people, tweets, or articles that mention any name, keyword, company, hashtag etc. We've compiled this guide to help you make the most of your search.
Selecting a term
Start searching tweets, articles from media outlets, articles mentioned in tweets, journalists'
names, titles and bios with some suggested searches:
Companies or Topics (e.g. iPhone, Microsoft)
Phrases (e.g. "cloud computing") — use quotes to keep the terms together
Twitter handles (e.g. @username) — returns those who have mentioned or replied to
Names (e.g. "David Pogue")
Hashtags (e.g. #sxsw, #london2012)
Bio details (e.g. vegan, Olympics, father)
Muck Rack's Advanced Search allows for many boolean operators.
Find results that mention multiple specified terms, use AND or
+. For example, ensure each result contains both Elon Musk and Mark Zuckerberg by
searching Musk AND Zuckerberg or Musk + Zuckerberg.
Use the operators OR or , to broaden your search when you'd like either of
multiple terms to appear in results. (This is the default behavior of our search when no operators
are used). For example, results will contain either cake or cookie by searching cake OR cookie or cake,cookie
Use NOT or - to subtract results from your search. For
example, searching Disney will yield results about the Walt Disney Company as well as Walt Disney
World Resort. To exclude mentions of Disney World, search for Disney -World or Disney
When using one of these operators with a phrase, enclose it in quotation marks. For example, you can
find results about smartphones excluding Apple's iPhone 4S by searching smartphone -"iPhone
Exact case matching or punctuation
If you're searching for a brand name or keyword that relies on specific punctuation marks or capitalization, you can
find results that match your exact query by adding matchcase: before the keyword you're searching for, like matchcase:E*TRADE .
Use parentheses to separate multiple
boolean phrases. For example, to find journalists talking about having fun in Disney World or
Disneyland, search for ("disney world" OR disneyland) AND fun.
An asterisk can be used to search for any variation of a root word truncated by the asterisk. For example, searching for admin* will return results for administrator, administration, administer, administered, etc.
A near operator is an AND operator where you can control the distance between the words. You can vary the distance the near operation uses by adding a forward slash and number (between 0-99) such as strawberries NEAR/10 "whipped cream", which means the strawberries must exist within 10 words of "whipped cream".
