SALISBURY, N.C. — A distribution center that services 270 Food Lion stores in North Carolina has reopened after being severely damage due to a tornado.
Food Lion said the Dunn, N.C.-based center, which first opened in 1988, now includes an expanded refrigerated and frozen section of an additional 54,000 sq. ft., which provides added storage for more than 4,000 dairy, meat and frozen food products. On average, the distribution facility ships more than 1.4 million cases of products each week and houses 12,800 items.
"Food Lion is extremely grateful for the dedication of the Dunn distribution and transportation associates who support our stores and enable us to deliver grocery products to our customers every day," Food Lion president Cathy Green Burns said. "We are proud of this most recent business expansion in North Carolina and the reopening of the center to serve our customers."
