The Food Lion To-Go program allows customers to order and pick up their groceries in as little as an hour, the retailer said in an October 10 press release.
“We are so excited to expand this convenient service to more stores in the Food Lion footprint and enable customers to spend more time on what matters most to them,” said Deborah Sabo, senior vice president of marketing at Food Lion. “With the Food Lion To-Go service, our associates become personal shoppers and are able to hand pick the freshest produce and best cuts of meat, just as they would for their own family. We look forward to continuing to nourish our neighbors with this new convenient service.”
With the expansion of the “Food Lion To-Go” program, the supermarket operator said that it continues to deliver on its promise to ensure an easy, fresh and affordable grocery shopping experience.
The latest Food Lion stores getting the service are in Delaware, North Carolina, South Carolina, Virginia and West Virginia.
To access the program, customers shop at the retailer’s foodlion.com website and select the closest participating store based on their ZIP code. After filling their virtual shopping carts customers select the day and hour they want to pick up the groceries. A Food Lion associate then accepts the order and prepares it at the store, the company said. At the pick-up time, customers drive to a designated parking area, where a store employee delivers the order to their vehicle. Food Lion To-Go is available seven days per week between 10 a.m. and 8 p.m.
