Salisbury, North Carolina-based Food Lion continues to expand its Food Lion To-Go grocery pickup service, rolling it out at 25 more stores in Virginia and North Carolina beginning Aug.19. Ribbon-cutting ceremonies will mark the occasion for each location at 8:45 a.m.
To help introduce customers to this new service, the retailer is offering the first pickup for free. The To-Go option allows shoppers to order and pick up their groceries in as little as an hour, and gives them access to the same prices and fresh food items without having to enter a store.
“We are so excited to expand this convenient service to more stores in the Food Lion footprint and enable customers to spend more time on what matters most to them,” said Deborah Sabo, SVP of marketing at Food Lion. “With the Food Lion To-Go service, our associates become personal shoppers and are able to handpick the freshest produce and best cuts of meat, just as they would for their own family. We look forward to continuing to nourish our neighbors with this new convenient service.”
After selecting a location and filling a virtual cart with grocery items, customers choose a pickup time that works for their schedule. A store associate will then prepare the order. Upon arrival at the store, shoppers park in a designated parking area, where an associate will deliver the order directly to their car.
Food Lion To-Go is available seven days per week from 10 a.m.-8 p.m. The grocery chain continues to expand this service in the towns and cities it serves.
