SALISBURY, N.C. – Starting today, neighbors in Vidalia, Ga., can nourish their families at their new local Food Lion located at 1101 E 1st St., Vidalia, Ga. 30474. The new store will have approximately 75 associates and serve customers daily from 7 a.m. until 10 p.m. Food Lion recently completed the acquisition of this location, which was formerly a BI-LO, after announcing its plans last year to acquire 62 BI-LO/Harveys Supermarkets across the Carolinas and Georgia.

In addition to its longstanding heritage of low prices, Food Lion also makes shopping easy and affordable for customers through its MVP loyalty program, its award-winning personalized Shop & Earn monthly rewards offers and with weekly promotions, hot sales, and everyday low prices.

“My team and I are excited to continue to serve the great city of Vidalia as the new Food Lion team,” said Candace LaNasa, store manager of the new Food Lion. “We are here with a new name, new uniforms, and new lower prices, but an expanded assortment and the same friendly faces you have been able to depend on in years past. We’re excited to welcome neighbors to their new Food Lion and look forward to serving our community.”

Customers can choose from an extensive product assortment, including in-store fresh cut fruit and vegetables, “grab-and-go” meal options to help make any meal easier, delicious hand-battered fried chicken and 100% USDA Choice fresh beef.

The store also offers a variety of Food Lion’s Nature’s Promise-brand beef, pork, poultry, milk, eggs, bottled water, cereal, coffee and other items. Nature’s Promise is Food Lion’s affordable brand of wholesome and organic products made with no artificial flavors, preservatives or synthetic colors.

Additionally, neighbors can find a wide variety of great local offerings, such as a variety of fresh produce from Norman Farms located in Norman Park, Ga., fresh pork and chicken products from Alma, Ga.’s Lee Corporation and Hardy Farms Peanuts from Hawkinsville, Ga. A list of additional local vendors with products that may be found in the new store can be found here.

To help introduce neighbors to the new store, welcome gifts were provided to firefighters at Vidalia City Fire Department Station 2, Vidalia Fire Department, Toombs County Fire Department and Lyons Fire Department; faculty and staff at JD Dickerson Primary and Elementary Schools and Sally D. Meadows Elementary School; and staff at Vidalia City Hall.

In another commitment to the community, through Food Lion Feeds – the retailer’s hunger-relief initiative – the retailer donated $1,500 to God’s Storehouse, a partner agency of America's Second Harvest of Coastal Georgia. The feeding agency will also regularly receive food from the new store to distribute to neighbors in need through Food Lion Feeds’ industry-leading food rescue program, which has helped Food Lion donate the equivalent of nearly 750 million meals since 2014.
