With innovations, constructions, and remodeling news abounding, it's hard to ignore what Ahold Delhaize has been up to. Especially when its grocery banner, Food Lion, is planning on opening up another store, in another Bi-Lo location, this time in Goose Creek. The new location will be the third Food Lion to operate in the area and the 15th in the Charleston region.
“Food Lion is excited to be able to offer a new, easier shopping experience for Goose Creek customers,” Media and Community Relations Manager, Benny Smith, said. “We expect to open sometime later this year.”
Local news source The Post and Courier reported that the former Bi-Lo store occupied 47,500 square feet, just east of a long-standing Publix supermarket and a Walmart Neighborhood Market store. The new store comes after Ahold announced that it has finished its remodel of 92 other stores in South Carolina, the home state of Food Lion, reported on our sister site ANUK.
Will residents embrace the new Food Lion or will the already over-saturated market squeeze out another competitor? Keep reading Deli Market News to find out more as we cover the latest grocery news.
