Food Lion to celebrate new store openings

By Antoinette Alexander - 06/11/2018
Food Lion is celebrating this week the opening of two of its newest South Carolina stores.

The grand openings in Myrtle Beach and Surfside Beach will be held Wednesday.

Each store will open to the public on Wednesday following a ribbon-cutting ceremony where local staff from three local feeding agencies will speak about Food Lion's impact in the community. Also as part of the celebration festivities, the first 100 customers in line will receive a free tote bag and mystery gift card valued between $5 and $200.

"Food Lion has been a proud member of the Greater Myrtle Beach community for nearly 40 years," said Joel Smith, Food Lion's director of operations for the greater Myrtle Beach, S.C., area. "We are excited to open our doors this week and offer our customers a great grocery experience where it's easy to shop, easy to save and easy to figure out what's for dinner tonight. We are bringing an expanded assortment of quality, fresh products to our customers, while keeping the low prices they expect from Food Lion."

As part of the grand opening ceremonies, Food Lion will donate the equivalent of 45,000 meals, or 15,000 meals to each stores' partner food pantries (Helping Hands, Tabernacle of Meetings and the Community Kitchen). These efforts are part of Food Lion's commitment to donating 500 million meals by 2020 through its hunger-relief platform.
