SALISBURY, N.C., July 13, 2015 /PRNewswire/ -- Food Lion has announced significant investments in prices throughout its stores by lowering prices on thousands of items that are most important to customers as the grocer taps into its longstanding heritage of low prices and convenient locations. The price reductions also include new, easier ways for Food Lion customers to save brought to life by new signage throughout the store.
"Affordable prices and great deals are a significant part of our heritage at Food Lion and the reason why we have invested further to bring our customers even lower prices," said Meg Ham, president of Food Lion. "Today's announcement is not only about making grocery shopping more affordable for our customers, but also making it easier, as we have redesigned our in-store signage so customers can easily identify savings throughout the store."
The price reductions are based on extensive customer research of frequently purchased items, such as everyday staples like apple juice, peanut butter, frozen vegetables, canned beans and household items like paper towels, detergent and much more. Food Lion customers can take advantage of the new savings starting today throughout our stores.
Every day, customers will be able to identify "Ways to Save" by using three easy-to-spot signs:
- Hot Sale: Food Lion's top weekly MVP specials, and the best prices throughout the store, only available with an MVP card.
- WOW: Lower prices on thousands of items that matter most to our customers, offered for longer periods of time.
- Low Price: Essential items throughout the store, priced affordably every day.
The price investments are an extension of Food Lion's "Easy, Fresh and Affordable. You Can Count on Food Lion Every Day!" strategy. Other components of the strategy customers can experience in all of Food Lion's 1,100 stores are an expanded assortment of products and a renewed focus on customer service brought about by new customer-centric training for Food Lion's 63,000 associates.
