Food Lion on Wednesday will open its newest location in West Virginia at 130 Duella Dr. in Inwood, the grocery retailer announced on Monday.
“I’ve had the pleasure of serving the Inwood community for the last seven years and have appreciated the opportunity to meet many of our wonderful neighbors,” said store manager Jay Moaveni in a statement. Food Lion currently operates a store at 4803 Gerrardstown Road in Inwood. “Our neighbors have always trusted us to nourish their family, and my team and I are excited to bring them this new store to make shopping even easier. I think customers will be thrilled to see everything we have to offer.”
With groceries in all departments as well as fresh sushi, in-store cut fruit and grab-and-go options, the store will also include a self-service hot wing and Asian food bar. Local offerings, such as in-season produce from Orr’s Farm Market, pepperoni rolls from Home Industry Bakery, as well as a list of additional West Virginia-based suppliers, will also be available.
The store will also feature items from Nature’s Promise, Food Lion’s “affordable brand of wholesome and organic products,” which earlier this month launched a food pharmacy pilot program to combat food insecurity.
The store also features a walk-in produce cooler, the grocery retailer said in a statement. Looking to provide sustainable solutions, the new store features energy-efficient overhead LED lighting.
Doors will open at 8 a.m. on Wednesday, following a 7:45 a.m. ribbon-cutting ceremony, with the first 100 customers given the chance to claim a mystery gift card valued up to $200 and a free reusable shopping bag. The store will be open daily from 7 a.m. until 11 p.m.
The new location will offer self-checkout lanes and the Food Lion To Go grocery pick-up service. Shoppers can order online through the Food Lion To Go website or the Food Lion To Go app.
Food Lion is Ahold Delhaize’s Salisbury, North Carolina-based banner, which continues to be the company’s strongest U.S. performer, boasting 40 consecutive quarters of positive sales growth, the Dutch retailer reported.
