SALISBURY, N.C. –Food Lion has been proud to serve its neighbors in the Monroe, N.C., community for 49 years.
On Wednesday, June 26, residents will be able to experience a new, larger and more convenient Food Lion store location at 250 N. MLK Jr. Blvd, in Monroe, N.C. This will be Food Lion’s fourth store in Monroe and 10th store in Union County. This store will replace a former store location at 1678 W. Franklin St. in Monroe.
The store will open to the public at 8 a.m. on Wednesday, following a 7:45 a.m. ribbon-cutting ceremony, where the first 100 customers in line will receive a free reusable bag and a mystery gift card valued up to $200.
Customers shopping the store will be able to choose from an expanded variety of products, including in-store fresh-cut fruit, in-store made hand-battered buttermilk fried chicken, and many other new items to nourish their families. The store will also feature a new garden cooler to keep produce fresher, longer. “Grab-n-go” meals will be available to help make dinner easier for customers. Customers will also be able to enjoy fresh-made sushi. The new store also will feature an expanded health and beauty section for customers.
"We are proud to have been a member of this community since 1970," said Kris Hathcock, store manager. "We are very excited about the opening of this new store that will give our neighbors a place where shopping is easy, fresh and always affordable.”
Additionally, the new store will provide families with affordable options from Food Lion’s Nature’s Promise beef, pork, poultry, milk, eggs, bottled water, cereal, coffee and other items. Nature’s Promise is Food Lion’s brand of products “free from” unwanted ingredients like artificial additives, preservatives and colors. These are great tasting products that our customers can trust.
The store also features the company’s new Food Lion To-Go service. Customers can visit www.foodlion.com, enter one of the participating zip codes, and select this store or the closest participating store. With just the click of a button from a computer or mobile device, Food Lion To-Go allows customers to order groceries, fill a virtual cart with the grocery items, and pick them up at your scheduled pick-up time, without ever having to enter a store…all with the same low prices and fresh food items customers expect from Food Lion, truly putting the “easy” in easy, fresh and affordable.
To demonstrate Food Lion’s on-going support of the Monroe community, a representative from Open Arms Community Outreach in Monroe will speak about Food Lion’s recent impact in helping the agency nourish local families.
The new Monroe store will be open daily from 7 a.m. until 11 p.m.
