Ahold Delhaize-owned Food Lion has officially completed remodeling 63 of its Virginia-based stores and will be unveiling its new, easier shopping experience at its Roanoke locations today, October 10. The remodels, which also included hiring 2,000 new associates, were the product of a $91.7 million investment.
“Roanoke is very special to Food Lion,” said Meg Ham, President of Food Lion. “We’ve been part of the fabric of this community for 40 years, opening our first store in Martinsville, Virginia. A lot has changed since we opened our first store in this market. We’ve created a new grocery shopping experience through significant investments in our stores, customers, associates, and communities. From our expanded variety and product assortment, newly reorganized stores, new signage to more efficient check-out experience, every change we’ve made will make it easier for our customers to find fresh, quality products at affordable prices every day.”
According to a press release, grocery shoppers headed to Food Lion today will experience the following changes:
Each store will open to the public at 8 a.m., following a ribbon-cutting ceremony.
Upon the completion of the Roanoke remodels, Food Lion will have remodeled 712 of its 1,030 stores in the last four years, including the renovation of 105 Norfolk-based stores this past August.
