Where does a strategic, $77 million investment get you in the retail world? For Food Lion, it means a massive remodeling effort as the company seeks to establish enhanced shopping experiences for consumers in Greenville, Jacksonville, and New Bern, North Carolina.

Meg Ham, President, Food Lion“Food Lion has been a proud neighbor in the Greenville, Jacksonville, and New Bern communities for 43 years,” said Meg Ham, President, Food Lion. “We’re excited to welcome our neighbors in these towns and cities into their fresh, new Food Lion. These remodels also reflect our ongoing commitment to invest in the growth and development of our associates, so they can provide a shopping experience customers can count on. From a brand-new look and feel to more convenient grab-and-go items to make any meal easier, each store has made big changes with our customers in mind, so they can nourish their families affordably and make life a little easier.”

Forty-seven of the grocer’s locations in these regions have now been newly remodeled. This recent investment is funneled into an extensive product assortment specifically focusing on affordable and accessible meal solutions, a release explained. Customers will also have more healthy options and a large selection of organic, gluten-free, and plant-based items to choose from.

Food Lion will also up its e-commerce options through pickup or home delivery across all stores. Inspired by shopper feedback, self-checkout lanes will be introduced at most stores for enhanced and efficient shopping.

To bolster the company’s environmental footprint, energy-efficient overhead LED lighting and refrigerated cases with doors will be part of the remodel, enhancing fresh product assortment and reducing energy costs.
