You’ve probably shopped for gifts, clothing and electronics online, but if you’ve never tried online grocery shopping before, you may have some questions. After all, you like to go inside and handpick your groceries, especially when shopping for fresh vegetables and fruit, right? It’s the ever-familiar search for the perfect produce items to bring home to your family. 

However, what if we told you that you could still get great produce when you shop online for your groceries? We can vouch that this is absolutely true (at our stores at least). But, before you jump in and start shopping, there are some other things that we want to tell you about online grocery shopping at your local Food Lion.

1. You will save time in your day.

Although grocery shopping might be when you have dedicated “you time”, there are definitely days when there is just too much to do. Soccer practice, dance class, birthday parties, play dates - your kiddos have busy social schedules, which doesn’t always leave enough spare minutes in the day to shop in the store for your groceries. 

Instead, open your Food Lion to Go app (or visit the website) and shop while you’re waiting for your kids. Then, pick up your groceries on your way home. So easy! Plus, a shopping trip that might have taken you 25 or 35 minutes to complete in-store was just reduced to a fraction of the time. 

2. Enjoy the same MVP pricing.

Time savings with online grocery shopping? Confirmed! But, will you receive the same MVP pricing on your fresh produce, as well as the other items on your list? Definitely! That means there’s no need to worry about missing out on MVP deals and the low prices you see in our stores. 

And when you’re trying to stick to a monthly grocery budget to nourish your happy family, those savings are important. So, you can rest assured that you will receive those MVP savings when you shop via Food Lion to Go.

3. Your fresh produce is carefully selected.

We get it - there’s something oh-so-satisfying about picking the perfect avocado, strawberries, head of lettuce and any other produce items to bring home to your family to enjoy. But, when time is of the essence and you choose to go the route of online grocery shopping, you’re leaving it in the hands of someone else. 

Luckily, we have high standards for the quality of our products and have trained our associates to be professional produce pickers. Plus, with our 100% Fresh or Double Your Money Back Guarantee, if you are ever not completely satisfied with the fresh veggies or fruit in your to-go order, we’ll make it right by giving you a refund of double your money back. Visit our Policies & Guarantees page for more information.

4. Ready when you are.

Whether you’re on your way home from the airport, sports practice, or school pick-up, you’re ready to get your groceries and get on with the rest of your day. That’s why it’s important that when you do your grocery shopping online with Food Lion, your order is ready when you are.
