Food Lion plans to remodel its Raleigh, North Carolina, market stores in 2015.
“We’re proud to have been a part of the Raleigh community since 1975 and are excited to bring our Raleigh customers our newest format stores,” said Food Lion President Meg Ham. “We’ve heard from our customers that they’re seeking an easy, quick, convenient shopping experience, with quality, fresh products and the low prices they’ve come to expect from Food Lion. Through the remodels, this is exactly what Food Lion will deliver.”
Since Salisbury, North Carolina-based Food Lion announced its “Easy, Fresh and Affordable. You Can Count on Food Lion Every Day!” strategy in May 2014, the grocer has brought enhancements to its Raleigh market stores—including its newest assortment of products, selected based on customer feedback, and new register systems that make checkout faster, while making savings easier for customers throughout the store. Additionally, Food Lion’s approximately 6,000 associates in the Raleigh market have been provided with new customer-centric training to better serve customers.
“We want our customers and the Raleigh community to know that they can count on Food Lion for a great shopping experience in our stores every day. We’ll continue to listen to our customers and learn from their feedback,” added Ham.
The Raleigh market remodels are expected to be completed in stores on a rolling basis between April and October. Food Lion will continue to launch enhancements for customers across all of its 1,100 stores in 2015, as well as remodels in markets over time. Raleigh is the third market to receive the store remodels. Seventy-six stores in the greater Wilmington and Greenville, North Carolina, markets were remodeled in 2014.
