Food Lion to remodel 71 Richmond stores in Virginia

Published 02 May 2017

Food Lion said it will remodel 71 stores this year in the greater Richmond area in the US state of Virginia.

In an effort to make shopping easier and more affordable for its customers, the company will make a $110 million investment in its stores. This includes remodeling the stores, additional price investments throughout the year and investments in associates and the community through Food Lion Feeds, the grocer's hunger relief initiative.

"Food Lion is proud to have been a part of the greater Richmond community since 1984, and we are excited to bring our newest format to this market," said Food Lion President Meg Ham. "We look forward to making significant investments in our stores, our customers, our associates and our communities to offer a new grocery shopping experience. We want to ensure our customers can easily find fresh, quality products to nourish their families at affordable prices every day, delivered with caring, friendly service every time they shop."

As part of its "Easy, Fresh and Affordable...You Can Count on Food Lion Every Day!" strategy, Food Lion has already brought enhancements to its Richmond stores including product expansion, new registers, price investments and enhanced service. When the remodels are complete, among the key benefits customers will be able to take advantage of include:

Fresh, new stores designed to be easier to navigate and shop so customers can get in and out of the store quickly.

Expanded variety and assortment that is relevant to our customers in each store, such as more local products such as beer and wine, and natural and organic selections.

Richmond is the sixth market to be remodeled and the stores are expected to be completed on a rolling basis between June and October 2017. Food Lion will continue to launch enhancements across its more than 1,000 stores in 2017, as well as remodel additional markets over time.

The company is currently remodeling 93 stores in the greater Greensboro, N.C., market, and has previously completed 142 stores in greater Charlotte, N.C., in 2016, 162 stores in the greater Raleigh, N.C., area in 2015, and 76 stores in the greater Wilmington, N.C., and Greenville, N.C., markets in 2014.
