SUNBURY, Pa. — Weis Markets Inc. last month announced plans to convert 38 recently acquired Food Lion stores in three Mid-Atlantic states to Weis Markets outlets.
The conversions should be completed by the end of October, said Kurt Schertle, chief operating officer at Weis Markets. The move will double the number of Weis Markets in Maryland and represents its expansion into both Virginia and Delaware.
“Our goal is to build on our advantages as a locally focused retailer that offers a strong combination of quality, value and service,” Schertle said. “As part of this commitment, we plan to expand variety in every department.”
Weis Markets also said it is planning to hire more than 2,000 current Food Lion employees.
