Salisbury, North Carolina-based Food Lion has opened a new location in the Briar Chapel area of Pittsboro, North Carolina. The store, located at 70 Ballantrae Ct., is the third store that Food Lion has opened this year.
“I’m very excited to bring our easy, fresh and affordable shopping experience to more of our neighbors in Chatham County,” said Jason Kiser, store manager. “I’m looking forward to providing the Briar Chapel community with our easy in-store checkout options, simple Food Lion To Go online ordering and convenient shopping at the best prices possible every day.”
The new store features a large product assortment, including sushi, fresh-cut fruit and a selection of organic, gluten-free and plant-based items. Additionally, the store has a walk-in produce cooler, self-service hot wing and Asian food bar.
To make shopping easier for customers, the store offers self-checkout lanes and the Food Lion To Go grocery pick up service, which allows them to place an order with the click of a button while experiencing the same low prices and fresh food items they receive in the store.
The store also offers a variety of local offerings, such as craft beers from nearby Carolina Brewing in Pittsboro, North Carolina; Bright Leaf Hot Dogs produced by Carolina Packers in Smithfield, North Carolina; and fresh local produce grown at Cottle Farms in Faison, North Carolina.

Furthering Food Lion’s commitment to sustainability, the store features energy-efficient overhead LED lighting. Food Lion is the only company in the country to receive the Energy Star Partner of the Year Award from the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency and the U.S. Department of Energy for 21 consecutive years.
In addition, Food Lion donated 30,000 meals to the food pantry at Haw River Baptist Church through Food Lion Feeds, the retailer’s hunger-relief initiative. The church will also regularly collect food from the store to distribute through Food Lion Feeds’ industry-leading food rescue program, in which food safe for human consumption is donated to a local feeding agency before the food spoils. The company has donated more than 970 million meals since 2014.
