Food Lion has announced the company will remodel 71 stores in the greater Richmond, VA market in 2017. In an effort to make shopping easier and more affordable for its customers, the company will make a $110 million investment in its stores.
This investment includes remodeling the stores, additional price investments throughout the year and investments in associates and the community through Food Lion Feeds, the grocer’s hunger relief initiative.
“Food Lion is proud to have been a part of the greater Richmond community since 1984, and we are excited to bring our newest format to this market,” said Food Lion President Meg Ham.
“We look forward to making significant investments in our stores, our customers, our associates and our communities to offer a new grocery shopping experience. We want to ensure our customers can easily find fresh, quality products to nourish their families at affordable prices every day, delivered with caring, friendly service every time they shop,” said Han.
Key benefits customers will be able to take advantage after stores remodeling:
- Fresh, new stores designed to be easier to navigate and shop so customers can get in and out of the store quickly.
- Expanded variety and assortment that is relevant to our customers in each store, such as more local products, beer and wine, as well as natural and organic selections.
