A ribbon cutting ceremony will be held at each location at 8:45 a.m. on Oct. 14th, and to help introduce customers to this new service, Food Lion is offering shoppers their first pickup for free.
The launch of this new, convenient service enables Food Lion to continue to deliver on its promise to ensure an easy, fresh and affordable grocery shopping experience, and it allows customers to order and pick up their groceries in as little as an hour.
“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, senior vice president of marketing at Food Lion. “With the Food Lion To-Go service, our associates become personal shoppers and are able to hand pick 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."
Food Lion wants to give local residents the option to shop through the channel they prefer: in-store or online. The company continues to expand this new service in the towns and cities it serves, highlighting Food Lion’s commitment to making grocery shopping easy and personable. With the click of a button, Food Lion To-Go allows customers to experience the same low prices and fresh food items without having to ever enter a store. The online service lets customers fill a virtual cart with the grocery items they need and schedule a pick-up time that works for their schedule, truly putting the “easy” in easy, fresh and affordable.
How Food Lion To-Go Works
Customers can visit shop.foodlion.com and select the closest participating store based on their zip code. Next, they may add items to a virtual cart. Once they are done filling their cart, customers can check out and pick a day and hour window they want to pick the groceries up in and proceed to check out. A trained Food Lion associate will then accept the order and prepare it at the store for the customer's designated pick up timeframe. Upon arrival, To-Go shoppers may park in the designated parking area, where a dedicated Food Lion associate will deliver their order directly to their car. Food Lion To-Go is available seven days per week from 10 a.m. until 8 p.m.
