Food Lion opens 75th store of 2021

New location in Garner, N.C., focuses on local offerings

Food Lion’s newest supermarket opened in Garner, N.C., last month and became the grocer’s 75th new store this year.

The new store features an extensive product assortment, including fresh in-store made sushi, a self-service hot and cold food bar, in-store fresh-cut fruit and a wide variety of affordable and easy “grab-and-go” options for meal solutions. Customers have an extensive selection of organic, gluten-free and plant-based items to choose from, including Nature’s Promise-brand items, which are Food Lion’s affordable brand of wholesome and organic products made with no artificial flavors, preservatives or synthetic colors.

“Having served the Garner community for the past 15 years at the Glen Road location, I’m so excited and proud to welcome my friends, family and neighbors to shop with us and experience our expanded assortment and variety here at our new store, at the everyday low prices they expect,” said Joe Bove, store manager of the new Garner Food Lion. “I am really excited for the associates at the store as well. We are excited to open and take care of this great community. I look forward to seeing new faces and welcoming old friends to shop with us for years to come.”

The store offers a wide variety of local offerings, such as freshly brewed craft beers from Deep River Brewing Company in Clayton, N.C.; North Carolina's Famous Bright Leaf Hot Dogs produced by Carolina Packers in Smithfield, N.C.; and fresh local produce grown at Cottle Farms in Faison, N.C.
