Food Lion saves our family money! And when we save money on groceries we are able to spend a little more on meaningful things like family vacations or fun trips to the movies. Of course, while we are saving money we also know that at Food Lion, we are getting great selection and the highest quality. The Lion's produce departments is especially a favorite--healthy, fresh, and affordable!

Food Lion Story 4

I don't know what I would do without Food Lion. I have tried other places but they were more expensive or didn't have the same quality. My mother had been sick most of my childhood and she only liked certain foods . The people behind the deli counter knew what I wanted and always had her order ready for me. They saw me one day and asked why I hadn't been in recently? When I told them my mother had passed, the sweet little deli lady embraced me. Some things you just never forget.

Food Lion Story 7

Food Lion has become my go to store. When I go in it is always clean, the coupon printer is always working, and the selection of produce and regular grocery are awesome and have good prices. The people of Food Lion are friendly, they answer any questions that I may have, and they always smiling. I have never had a problem with anything that I have bought from them and I love the quick service when its time to check out

Food Lion Story10

Our oldest son has Autism and shopping can be challenging, but I have always felt accepted and loved at our local Food Lion. The staff is always willing to lend a hand or a kind word when the day isn’t going so well for our son. The new changes in the store has made our shopping experience even better! The first thing I noticed was more gluten free foods! This meant I don't have to make a 45 minute drive to a larger city for these items!

Food Lion Stories

I have shopped at Food Lion for years, I was actually an employee the later part of high school/early years of college. I love the low prices and convenience of location to my home. The MVP Coupon Center, WOW and MVP savings are a extra perk that make my shopping experience even more enjoyable! Nothing makes me happier than to see how much I’ve saved on purchase for the day. Thank you Food Lion for always having the lowest prices and quality fresh food items for my family!

stories

One of the best ideas that has come from Food Lion is the use of blue bags to indicate perishable products. I used to rush through bags looking for ice cream, eggs, milk, and other dairy or meat products to put them in the freezer quickly. It was frustrating because all the bags were the same. Now I sort through my blue bags and quickly put items in the freezer without a worry. What a novel idea, and convenient to the customer and associate who bags the groceries.

stories

I had our first child November 2014 and what a blessing she is! My job doesn't offer the best of maternity leave. With the help of Food Lion’s great prices and always stocked shelves, we never went without! Our daughter was premature and it was a struggle in the beginning because I intended to breastfeed and we had NO formula on hand for supplementing. The formula we needed was always stocked and at a great price! Now our little one is 9 months old and is healthy as a horse.

stories

A couple of months ago my family moved into a home in Franklinton, NC. Every Friday I go shopping with my 1-year-old at our local Food Lion. I have never been more pleased with a store! One day I was having a bad day but still had to get the errands done. After gathering my items and heading to check out, the cashier instantly helps load my items onto the belt. Not only that, the bagger pushes my cart to my car and loads it. The employees are is what keeps me coming back!

stories

There are several grocery stores within a 5-mile radius for me to shop at. I shop at Food Lion because the prices are low and the stores are always clean. My store has recently been remodeled and I absolutely love the produce department. I also love the fact that the meats are always fresh. I have never had a bad meat product from Food Lion. It’s nice to go to a store with all the lanes open, a smile and a great attitude. Keep up the great work!

stories

We love shopping at Food Lion. I've shopped the same Food Lion for 17 years in Garner, NC. I wouldn't trade my Food Lion for any other store. Love the prices and customer service is great!

stories

We love shopping at Food Lion. The workers in there become like family. I enjoy going in there, and some of the people in there remember me right off. They are always walking by me asking if I am finding everything OK. If I ask someone where something is, they don’t just point and say over there, they take me to it and we find it together. I love my hometown Food Lion, they are my family

stories

Food Lion is our go-to store. The prices are competitive as well as the store brand in most cases being just as good as the brand-name items. We love the fact that we can scan our MVP card and get coupons on the spot that typically include a savings on produce and meat. We have three children and they love fresh fruits and veggies and the Lion makes it affordable to eat healthy.  Thanks Food Lion for being consistently good for the Joneses.

stories

As a daughter of a soldier, we rarely bought groceries anywhere other than the commissary. My first experience of a Food Lion wasn't until college. I have continued to shop at Food Lion, checking the MVP deals and scanning my card at the kiosk for coupons. My daughter had her first grocery store experience after walking her in the stroller to Food Lion when she was 4 weeks old. We are truly a Food Lion family!

stories

I moved to North Carolina six years ago and have fallen in love with Food Lion! My daughter has cerebral palsy and can only have Pedisure. A lot of stores carry the product but only have a week or so worth in stock. Since it is hard to get out of the house with a disabled child and an infant, I like to get a month supply at a time. I told the manager and she has a large order ready for us to pick up each month. I feel like my business is appreciated at Food Lion.

stories

With a family of five, the grocery budget can get out of hand pretty quickly, but thanks to Food Lion’s IP program, we get sent extra coupons on items we actually buy on top of their regular sales to make our trips to the store more affordable. It allows for us to get some fun extras for the kids!

stories

We are a growing family of five, soon to be six in October. Our boys love to shop at Food Lion. Not only is it a low-price store, the workers there help us find great sales. With a growing family, it's nice to be in and out of the grocery store with no problems and save money while shopping.

test 2

Well my story is a little different. I had a friend who was a stocker at Food Lion. One night his store was robbed at gun point and my friend lost his life. Food Lion started a charity in his name and everything, and was taken care of by Food Lion. They paid for the entire funeral, made sure the family had everything they could possibly need. Even 20 years later Food Lion still checks on my friend's mom. Food Lion has made Life better for me and the only grocery store that I will shop at.

Food Lion Story 5

In 2014, before our son turned six months he got very sick. Because of this, we had to take our son out of daycare and me work part-time. We have learned to stretch every dollar as far as possible. Food Lion has helped with cutting expenses as the prices are often better than other local stores and the ease of loading coupons to my MVP card means not having to remember to bring coupons to the store. I know I'm getting the most for my money. Food Lion has made my life easier.

Food Lion Story 8

When I became an amputee, the staff at the Beaver Pond Food Lion were so attentive to my needs. They continuously help me from the front door to the back door and all points in between. If I stay in one place too long, someone will come to assist me. No matter who has a sale, my loyalty remains with Food Lion. I feel so blessed to have a team that shows that much care and concern for me. I am a winner simply because of my shopping experiences at Food Lion.

Food Lion Story 11

Food lion is our one and only grocery store. Our favorite store is in Grays Creek, NC. My girls and I go shopping every Sunday afternoon. The girls love all the nice people working there, especially the meat guy whom Peyton refers to as "my buddy”. I like all the fresh produce and meat at decent prices, as well as the MVP sales and Coupon station! I love having my MVP Card scanned and watching the total drop! Then I use my coupons. Food Lion makes me feel like a Super Mom.

Stories

I have been shopping at Food Lion for 35 years. I moved to Durham, NC, in 1981 and that is where my husband told me to go, and I’ve been going every since. They have been doing a makeover at the Food Lion on Roxboro Road/infinity Road. I went in there Thursday July 30 and they had put in brand-new cash registers and scanners. The store just looked beautiful. Everyone in that store knows me and they are so friendly to me. I will ALWAYS shop at Food Lion.

I have been shopping at Food Lion off and on for several years but recently I have made it my exclusive grocery store for our weekly shopping.

Saving money is important to me and Food Lion makes it easy for me to do that every week

Stories

I wasn't familiar with Food Lion when I moved here. As a new wife and an expecting mom I was looking for a store where I could feel welcomed and also save money. As I started making our weekly trips to Food Lion there was something about the customer service that made me want to keep returning. I love taking my boys to Food Lion. My 2-year-old always gets excited to sit in the special shopping cart. Thank you so much for providing excellent customer service.

stories

Food Lion is bright, clean, friendly and carries all my favorite brands plus many others for when I want to try something new; I love the variety there! Food Lion is one of the rare stores where customer service still matters, and the cashiers smile and say hello when you enter their line. One store I frequent quit carrying one of my favorite products: Stouffers spinach souffle. However, I can still count on Food Lion to make it available to me!

The Lion is a part of our routine. Divorced with three children, I must be price cautious, and the Lion always proves to be cost-effective with quality foods and products!

stories

I was on my way to a volunteer job on a weekend nd was thinking about what I could pick up for breakfast. The only store on the way was a Food Lion, so I stopped figuring the only choice I would have would be a sweet roll or muffin. I headed straight to the bakery/deli. My mouth watered from the smell of the fresh-made foods. I was practically drooling when I saw bacon, egg and cheese biscuits. Food Lion became my "stop at" place for biscuits. They are mouthwatering delicious.

I remember my best friend in second grade’s dad being a manager of a Food Lion and going on a field trip to learn the ins and out of the grocery business! My grandfather and father refused to shop anywhere else, and the tradition lives on. I can get in, FIND what I need and get out while receiving excellent customer service! This family is on a tight budget, and at Food Lion I can stretch that budget!

stories

Food Lion always has really good sales on the stuff I need to buy. Ever since I was a kid, my mom took me to Food Lion to buy Hispanic foods. At the time, Food Lion carried stuff that other stores hadn't even heard of, such as certain brands of canned pinto and black beans. I've always been able to do a quick run in and out of Food Lion while still looking at the sales and getting a great deal.

Story3

I was recently diagnosed with breast cancer. Since going through chemo, I lost my sense of taste and it was difficult trying to figure out what would taste good. I visited my local Food Lion on an almost daily basis trying fresh deli foods. Everything is always good and the staff very helpful.

Story 6

I’m a mother of six beautiful boys, I work full time. and attend school. My days are busy and hectic, but I wouldn't trade it for the world. I shop at Food Lion at least three days a week. And it’s only 10 min away. I often choose Food Lion to just grab a couple last minute items for dinner. Any time I can't find something (since the remodeling) the staff are quick to help. They even take the time to take me to the aisle and make sure I find what I'm looking for. “Thank You” for all you do Food Lion!

Food Lion Story 9

I started shopping at Food Town in Cary, NC in the late 1970's. I can depend on getting the very best produce and the freshest cuts of meat and the Deli/Bakery has the most wonderful food trays and delicious desserts. I love the MVP savings and the great coupons that I can load to my MVP card. The coupons from the kiosk are also helpful in saving even more money. The Lion makes my life so much easier. Many thanks to the Lion!

My grandmother shopped at Food Lion for many years before she passed away. She’s the one who started the rest of the family shopping there. There was no where better to shop in her eyes! I love our hometown Food Lion for its friendly staff and clean appearance. It is always well stocked! I never see empty shelves like in other stores. The employees are well trained, fast and competent. I will never go anywhere else as long as I live in Pittsboro. Thank you  for all that you do for us!

When we moved from Fremont, NC, I was in a panic to find a Food Lion near our new home. I just loved shopping in the Food Lion in Pikeville.

I really love the remodeling they have done as well, easier aisles and placement of products are a plus. See you soon!

stories

The past two years have been hard on my family. My husband became sick and died in April 2015. Needless to say we had to cut back in a lot of areas. Food Lion has excellent prices. My daughter begins her first job in two weeks. She will be a second-grade teacher. She has stocked up on snacks for her kids. Some of the kids do not have enough money to bring their own snacks. Food Lion makes it possible for her to afford these snacks. Thank you for what you have done for our family.

stories

Beofre I had a family, I shopped at Food Lion. I now have two children and a wonderful husband. We depend on Food Lion for weekly deals, special coupons and great products! I prefer to shop at Food Lion over supercenter-style stores because I know the layout of the store and I am familiar with the associates. Other grocery stores in my area are also higher priced than Food Lion. I would love to win free groceries because my family depends upon great deals and promotions.

My life is better with the LION simply because every time I go there they have everything I need and always have great meal ideas to help me feed my family.

Food Lion has more of the things I need at reasonable prices. Whether it be laundry detergent, breakfast foods or fruits, I would never consider going to a store other than Food Lion. Being retired and on a fixed income, prices are important to me. I live near my local store. It’s good to know that I can pop in there anytime I need something. The employees are friendly and helpful, the store is bright and cheery, and items are easy to locate. Thank you, Food Lion, for being there when I need you.
