SALISBURY, N.C., Aug. 24, 2022 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Neighbors in the Briar Chapel area of Pittsboro, NC, are now able to nourish their families at a brand new Food Lion. The new store, located at 70 Ballantrae Ct., Pittsboro, NC 27312, is open daily from 7 a.m. until 11 p.m. This is the third new store that Food Lion has opened in 2022.

“I’m very excited to bring our easy, fresh and affordable shopping experience to more of our neighbors in Chatham County,” said Jason Kiser, Store Manager of the new Briar Chapel Food Lion. “I’m looking forward to providing the Briar Chapel community with our easy in-store checkout options, simple Food Lion To Go online ordering and convenient shopping at the best prices possible every day.”

The new store features an extensive product assortment, including fresh sushi, in-store fresh-cut fruit and a wide variety of affordable and easy “grab-and-go” options to help make any meal easier. Customers have a large selection of organic, gluten-free and plant-based items to choose from, including Nature’s Promise-brand items, which are Food Lion’s affordable brand of wholesome and organic products made with no artificial flavors, preservatives or synthetic colors. Additionally, the store features a walk-in produce cooler, ensuring the freshest items available, and a self-service hot wing and Asian food bar.

To make shopping easier for customers, the store offers self-checkout lanes and the Food Lion To Go grocery pick up service, which allows customers to place an order with the click of a button while experiencing the same low prices and fresh food items they receive in the store.

The store is proud to also offer a wide variety of great local offerings, such as freshly brewed craft beers from nearby Carolina Brewing in Pittsboro, NC; North Carolina's Famous Bright Leaf Hot Dogs produced by Carolina Packers in Smithfield, NC; and fresh local produce grown at Cottle Farms in Faison, NC.

In another commitment to the Briar Chapel community, Food Lion donated 30,000 meals to the food pantry at Haw River Baptist Church through Food Lion Feeds, the retailer’s hunger-relief initiative. The church will also regularly collect food from the store to distribute to neighbors in need through Food Lion Feeds’ industry-leading food rescue program, in which food safe for human consumption is donated to a local feeding agency before the food spoils.
