Food Lion to remodel 105 stores

Food Lion continues to invest in store upgrades.

The supermarket company announced that it will remodel 105 stores in the greater Norfolk, Va., market in 2018. The remodels are part of a $168 million capital investment that also includes lowering prices, expanding product assortment, hiring some 5,000 new associates and promoting current associates, and additional community partnerships through Food Lion's hunger-relief initiative, Food Lion Feeds. Food Lion has remodeled 544 of its 1,000-plus stores across its 10-state operating area in the last four years.

Each of the 105 stores will remain open normal operating hours during the remodel process. Once the work is completed, the locations will be easier to navigate and shop so customers can get in and out quickly, Food Lion said. New registers and enhanced customer service are also part of the upgrade. And 12 of the 105 locations will also feature walk-in “garden coolers” designed to keep produce fresher longer.

Additionally, the remodeled will offer an expanded variety of products, including local, natural, organic and gluten-free items.

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