Food Lion is pleased to announce the grand opening of its new store in Edenton, N.C., on April 6. The store, located at 300 Virginia Road, features a number of exciting store enhancements to make shopping even more Easy, Fresh and Affordable for Food Lion customers!
Inside the store, customers now have a walk-in produce cooler, keeping produce fresher, longer, a new assortment of products with an abundant selection of fresh meat and produce, a dedicated gluten-free section and a growing selection of Nature's Place beef, pork and poultry items; all backed by Food Lion's 100% percent fresh or double-your-money-back guarantee!
"Food Lion has been a proud member of the Edenton community for more than 25 years and we look forward to creating an easier shopping experience for our customers," said Rodney Jackson, Director of Operations for Food Lion, including the Edenton area. "Over the past year, we have listened to our customers in this market and we look forward to bringing an expanded assortment of quality, fresh products to our customers, while keeping the low prices they expect from Food Lion."
The new store comes at a great time, as Food Lion recently launched its "How Refreshing" advertising campaign with the tagline, "Raising Our Standards, Without Raising Our Prices," focusing on providing the freshest quality at affordable prices every day.
While Food Lion made significant investments in its new Edenton store, it also made investments in the Edenton community through its community partners. On Tuesday, April 5, Food Lion surprised the Edenton Fire Department, Emergency Medical Services and the Tri-County Animal Shelter with gift baskets including grab-and-go items for EMS, steak dinner items for the Fire Department, dog toys and treats for the Animal Shelter and $300 Food Lion gift cards.
The next day, on April 6, Food Lion made a special visit to each school in the Edenton-Chowan School District to surprise more than 400 teachers and faculty with gift bags including water, apples and a $10 Food Lion gift card.
To keep the celebration going, Food Lion was joined by local dignitaries and Food Bank of the Albemarle representative, Rod Sershen, to present a $2,000 check, equating to 22,000 meals, to the local food bank.
After some kind words from Mayor Ronald Vaughan, Food Lion's Edenton Store Manager Alton Weaver cut the ribbon and welcomed customers inside the new store. Starting that morning at 8 a.m., until Saturday April 9, the first 100 customers at the store each morning received $10 gift cards.
Food Lion is thrilled to continue to be a part of the Edenton community and show its customers they can "Count On Food Lion" to provide quality products at low prices every day!
