Following a $250 million capital investment – the largest in its history – Food Lion will unveil 162 refreshed stores in the greater Raleigh, N.C., market on Oct. 14.
"Food Lion has been a proud neighbor in the Raleigh community for 40 years," noted Meg Ham, the chain’s president. "On the anniversary of our four decades in the market, we spent the year making significant investments in our stores, our customers, our associates and our community to offer a new grocery shopping experience where customers can easily find fresh, quality products at affordable prices every day, delivered with caring, friendly service every time they shop. We invite our customers to come out and experience 'How Life is Better with the Lion' at Food Lion and let us know what [they] think of the new stores."
Food Lion's New Features
Along with easier-to-shop features such as updated checkout technology and larger display screens, the revamped stores now feature lower prices on thousands of items in all departments; fresher produce, quality meats and a larger selection of natural and organic items, as well as a dedicated gluten-free section; and improved customer service accomplished by promoting or hiring hundreds of associates throughout the market and investing in further customer-centric training for the 10,000 associates in the Raleigh market.
The locations also offer affordable meals for families, including weekend deals from Friday to Sunday and hot meals with sides available seven days a week, along with a wider assortment of grab-and-go items and pre-sliced deli meats and cheeses, which are sliced fresh daily and can be picked up by customers without waiting in line.
