Omnichannel retailer Food Lion has completed a $77m remodelling programme at 47 stores in Greenville, Jacksonville and New Bern in North Carolina.
The company renovated the store to create an easier and improved shopping experience for its customers.
Food Lion will hold ribbon-cutting ceremonies at the newly remodelled stores on 2 August.
The renovated stores feature an expanded product assortment focusing on a range of ready-to-eat, ready-to-cook or ready-to-heat affordable and easy meal solutions.
Food Lion also added e-commerce options across all stores through Food Lion To Go grocery pickup or home delivery. Orders can be placed on the Food Lion To Go website or the Food Lion To Go app.
In addition, the remodelled stores have sustainability features, including energy-efficient overhead LED lighting and refrigerated cases with doors.

Food Lion president Meg Ham said: “Food Lion has been a proud neighbour in the Greenville, Jacksonville and New Bern communities for 43 years.
“We’re excited to welcome our neighbours in these towns and cities into their fresh, new Food Lion. These remodels also reflect our ongoing commitment to invest in the growth and development of our associates so they can provide a shopping experience customers can count on.
“From a brand-new look and feel to more convenient grab-and-go items to make any meal easier, each store has made big changes with our customers in mind, so they can nourish their families affordably and make life a little easier.”
In May this year, Food Lion opened its first 24 remodelled stores in Wilmington, North Carolina.
