Revamped Food Lion stores to include cheaper private labels, fresher produce

Delhaize banner announces re-openings of 178 stores

SALISBURY, N.C. — Food Lion has revamped 178 of its stores and hired 800 new employees, the Delhaize Group-owned supermarket chain said.

The company said the stores would offer an improved shopping experience — such as faster checkout service — fresher produce through the "Fresh from the Field" initiative and cheaper private label products. The changes were made to stores in Delaware, Maryland, Pennsylvania, Virginia and West Virginia.

Re-opening celebrations will take place at the stores, with free bags of groceries provided to the first 50 customers at each store.
