Food Lion unveiled the completion of makeovers to three area stores last week.

The Salisbury, N.C.-based chain had been making extensive renovations to its two stores in Lancaster and its one store in Chester for the last several months, and during special ceremonies Jan. 16, store managers joined local officials to have grand reopenings to signify the completion of the renovations.

The Airport Road store now features expanded wine and produce sections and added grocery specialty items.

The Main Street store at Lancaster Square features the new Nature's Place organic and natural foods section, organic produce, expanded wine section and new product varieties in all departments. Customer service now offers Western Union service and lottery sales.

"This is an exciting time for Food Lion and our customers, as we celebrate a fresh, new look, a greater selection of products, a new dedication to service and a renewed focus on delivering the freshest and best foods every day," said Geoff Waldau, Food Lion regional vice president of retail operations.

"We have worked hard to make our store here more attractive and provide an enhanced shopping experience," Waldau said. "We have paid special attention to our fresh departments - produce, meats and deli/bakery. The new and more inviting interior design signifies our commitment to offer the freshest produce, the best quality meats and an expanded selection."

Food Lion customers can find their store's specials on fresh produce, Butcher's Brand Premium Beef, other fresh meats, natural products, wines and more items throughout the store by visiting www.foodlion.com and clicking on weekly specials.
