Food Lion is continuing to invest in its store remodeling initiative, and will open 63 newly remodeled locations in the Roanoke, VA, area.
The company said it made a $91.7 million capital investment in its 63 area stores this year, which includes remodeling the stores, hiring nearly 2,000 additional associates to better serve customers and giving back to local communities by donating two mobile food trucks to area food banks.
With the completion of the remodels, Food Lion has remodeled 712 of its 1,030 stores in the last four years. The company also just completed renovating 105 stores in the greater Norfolk market in August.
“Roanoke is very special to Food Lion,” said Meg Ham, president of Food Lion. “We’ve been part of the fabric of this community for 40 years, opening our first store in Martinsville, VA. A lot has changed since we opened our first store in this market. We’ve created a new grocery shopping experience through the significant investments in our stores, customers, associates and communities. From our expanded variety and product assortment, newly reorganized stores, new signage to a more efficient check-out experience, every change we’ve made will make it easier for our customers to find fresh, quality products at affordable prices every day.”
