First 100 customers receive free mystery Food Lion gift card; other giveaways planned

Food Lion will open its new grocery store and adjacent liquor store at 77 S. Highway 57 in Little River, South Carolina, on May 3.

Following a ribbon-cutting ceremony at 7:45 a.m., the store will open to the public at 8 a.m. The first 100 customers in line will receive a mystery gift card valued up to $200, free reusable shopping bag and custom apron.

The store will be open daily from 7 a.m.-11 p.m. In addition, the liquor store next door is open from 9 a.m.-7 p.m. Monday through Saturday.

“I’m excited to open this new store in Little River and offer our neighbors a wide product assortment at the everyday low prices they expect from Food Lion,” said Chris Cheers, store manager. “With the liquor store adjacent to the Little River Food Lion, we will continue to deliver on our commitment to make grocery shopping easy, convenient and affordable for our customers.”

The new store features an extensive product assortment, hand-battered fried chicken, in-store cut fruit and a wide variety of “grab-and-go” options. In addition to the large selection of organic, gluten-free and plant-based items, Food Lion’s Nature’s Promise brands also are available. These are organic products made with no artificial flavors, preservatives or synthetic colors.

Additionally, the store features a walk-in produce cooler and a self-service hot wing and Asian food bar.

The store offers a variety of local offerings, including Caroline Plantation Grits, Gillespie’s Salted Peanuts and 5C’s Everything Sauce, all produced within 100 miles of the store. A list of additional South Carolina-based suppliers that may be featured in the store can be found online.

In keeping with Food Lion’s commitment to offering local products, the liquor store features spirits distilled locally as well as other regional favorites. This is Food Lion’s fifth liquor store operating adjacent to a Food Lion grocery store and the fourth in South Carolina.

The store offers self-checkout lanes and the Food Lion To Go grocery pickup service. Online orders may be placed on the Food Lion To Go website or the Food Lion To Go app.

Furthering Food Lion’s commitment to sustainability, the store features energy-efficient overhead LED lighting and refrigerated doors. 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 22 consecutive years.

In another commitment to the Little River community, the store has donated $2,500 each to two local feeding agencies: North Strand Helping Hands and St. Delight Community Outreach, both of Horry County. Each of these organizations also will regularly collect food from the store to distribute to neighbors in need through Food Lion Feeds’ industry-leading food rescue program.

Food Lion Feeds, the retailer’s hunger-relief initiative, has donated more than 1 billion meals to neighbors in need since 2014.

Food Lion is an omnichannel retailer with more than 82,000 associates across more than 1,100 stores in 10 Southeastern and Mid-Atlantic states. Founded and based in Salisbury, North Carolina, since 1957, Food Lion is a company of Ahold Delhaize USA, the U.S. division of Zaandam-based Ahold Delhaize.
