Food Lion picks up three Farm Fresh locations

By Michael Johnsen - 03/19/2018
Food Lion last week entered into a transaction to purchase three Farm Fresh stores in the Greater Norfolk, Va., area from Supervalu.

"We are so excited to add these three new locations to our network of more than 100 stores serving the greater Norfolk area," Meg Ham, Food Lion president, said. "We are part of the fabric of this community. We've been here in the towns and cities of Hampton Roads nourishing our neighbors and customers for nearly 40 years. With the addition of these three new stores, we have an even greater opportunity to serve more customers with fresh, quality products at affordable prices every day with the caring, friendly service they expect from Food Lion."

All locations will remain open as Farm Fresh stores until the transaction is complete, which is expected in May. Pharmacies at all locations will also remain open through the transition and will be operated by Food Lion once the transaction is complete.

Food Lion, a division of Ahold Delhaize, also will extend its commitment to supporting local communities through its hunger relief philanthropic platform, Food Lion Feeds. As part of last week's announcement, Food Lion is donating 3,000 meals to local families for each new store to the following food banks that support these communities – the Virginia Peninsula Foodbank, the Foodbank of Southeastern Virginia and the Eastern Shore, and the Food Bank of the Albemarle. Food Lion will also ensure each new store will be assigned a feeding agency partner to receive weekly food donations through the company's food rescue program.
