Food Lion in new store remodeling initiative

Food Lion is making a $158 million capital investment in its supermarkets in South Carolina.

The grocer announced it will remodel 92 stores in the greater Myrtle Beach, Florence, Columbia and Charleston markets in 2019. Once the renovations are complete, Food Lion will have remodeled 80% of its network of more than 1,000 stores across its 10 state operating area.

The $158 million capital investment Food Lion will make in its South Carolina stores will go toward remodeling the spaces, lowering prices, and expanding the assortment of products available at each location. The retailer is also expecting to hire nearly 2,000 new associates at the stores as part of its commitment to enhancing the customer experience.

The remodeled stores will offer an expanded variety and assortment of products that are relevant to customers in each market, along with enhanced deli/bakery service and an enhanced customer service. Once complete, the locations will offer fresh, new experiences designed to be easier to navigate and shop so customers can get in, out and on their way quickly.

"We look forward to making significant investments in our stores, our associates and our communities to offer a new grocery shopping experience,” said Food Lion president Meg Ham. “Our mission is to ensure our customers can easily find fresh, quality products to nourish their families at affordable prices every day, delivered with caring, friendly service every time they shop. We look forward to reintroducing our renovated stores later this summer."

Food Lion, based in Salisbury, N.C., has more than 1,000 stores in 10 Southeastern and Mid-Atlantic states and employs more than 63,000 associates. It is a company of Ahold Delhaize USA.
