The investment includes e-commerce options across all stores through pickup or home delivery and energy-efficient overhead LED lighting and refrigerated cases with doors. The modern solutions impart ambiance, enhance fresh product assortment and reduce energy costs, helping reduce Food Lion’s environmental footprint.

Additionally, there was a focus on training and developing associates to provide the best customer experience.

The investment funded the construction of a mobile teaching kitchen with the necessary equipment and space for cooking. The unit has been fabricated with two commercial fridges, shelving, sinks, spaces for food preparation and cooking, and extensive storage for educational supplies and kits.
