Salisbury, North Carolina, UNITED STATES


SALISBURY, N.C., July 14, 2020 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Food Lion, in partnership with Instacart, is making fresh and affordable shopping as easy as opening an app. The availability of its grocery delivery service is expanding to 302 stores in Maryland, North Carolina, South Carolina, Virginia and West Virginia beginning today.

Customers in these delivery areas can use Food Lion's To-Go website or the Food Lion To-Go app to confirm availability and place orders.

“Expanding this convenient service to 302 stores in the Food Lion footprint is more important than ever,” said Evan Harding, director of digital and e-commerce marketing at Food Lion. “We want to give local neighbors the option to shop through the channel they prefer, in-store or online, while still ensuring they have access to the freshest groceries at affordable prices.”

The company continues to expand this new service with Instacart across its local towns and cities, highlighting their commitment to making grocery shopping easy, affordable and personable.

With the click of a button, Food Lion grocery delivery allows customers to experience the same low prices and fresh food items without having to ever enter a store. The online service allows customers to place an order and have their groceries delivered right to their front door in as fast as an hour.

Additionally, by linking their personal MVP card to their account, Food Lion customers can use digital coupons and redeem their “Shop & Earn” MVP rewards program savings. Customers can also see their accumulated Shop & Earn rewards on their checkout screen and view which clipped digital coupons will be applied to their order. This is in addition to their MVP discounts, in-store promotions and weekly savings specials.
