Food Lion on track with store remodels

Food Lion continues to invest in its stores.

The supermarket company will unveil its newest store upgrades of 23 stores in 14 towns and cities throughout the greater Charlottesville and Harrisonburg, Va., markets on Wednesday, July 31. In April, Food Lion announced it was making a $40 million capital investment in the stores, which included remodeling, hiring 400 additional associates and donating to local community organizations.

With its latest round batch of remodels, Food Lion now has renovated 80% of its network of more than 1,000 stores across its 10-state operating area.

“We’ve created a new grocery shopping experience through the significant investments in our stores, associates and communities,” said Food Lion President Meg Ham. “From our expanded variety and product assortment, newly reorganized stores, to a more efficient checkout experience, every change we’ve made will make it easier for our customers to find the quality products they have come to expect from Food Lion.”

The renovated stores offer a larger assortment of products relevant to customers in each community, including greater numbers of local, natural, organic and gluten-free items. Other additions include store-made made hand-battered fried chicken; in-store cut fruit and a bigger seafood offering at select stores; and expanded assortments of international specialty products, value-priced grab-and-go snacks, and premium and ready-to-drink coffees.

Food Lion has more than 1,000 stores in 10 Southeastern and Mid-Atlantic states. It is part of Ahold Delhaize USA, the U.S. division of Netherlands-based Royal Ahold Delhaize Group.
