Ahold Delhaize-owned Food Lion is continuing its 1,000-store remodel across its 10-store operating area with a new $40 million investment in the Virginia market. The news comes on the heels of its renovation of 92 North Carolina stores earlier last month. Now, Food Lion is honing in on 14 towns and 23 stores in Charlottesville and Harrisonburg, Virginia, to further its "Easy, Fresh and Affordable...You Can Count on Food Lion Every Day!" strategy.
"Food Lion is proud to have been a part of the many towns and cities we serve throughout the Charlottesville/Harrisonburg market for 37 years, and we are even more excited to bring new offerings, services, and a new look to these markets," said Food Lion President Meg Ham. "We look forward to making significant investments in our stores, our associates, and our communities to offer an enhanced shopping experience.”
According to a press release, the remodels will consist of doubling down on customer service and adding the following enhancements:
“Our mission is to ensure our customers can easily find fresh, quality products to nourish their families at affordable prices every day, delivered with the caring, friendly service they expect from Food Lion every time they shop. We look forward to reintroducing our renovated stores later this summer,” Ham continued.
The grocer also expects to hire nearly 400 new associates at all of the stores listed here.
