Food Lion opens new Hartsville location
Food Lion has opened a new location at 819 W. Carolina Ave. in Hartsville, company officials said. The store will have approximately 75 associates and serve customers daily from 7 a.m. until 10 p.m. Food Lion recently completed the acquisition of this location, which was formerly a BI-LO, after announcing its plans last year to acquire 62 BI-LO/Harveys Supermarkets across the Carolinas and Georgia. “I am excited to open this new Food Lion location to support the Hartsville community,” said Reggie Hancock, store manager of the new Food Lion and a Hartsville native. “Hartsville is my hometown, and I have lived and worked here my entire life. I look forward to welcoming our community to our new location and seeing their excitement with the updates that have been made and expanded varieties available across the store.” In another commitment to the community, through Food Lion Feeds – the retailer’s hunger-relief initiative – the retailer donated $1,500 to Wesley UMC, which is an agency of Harvest Hope Food Bank. The church will also regularly receive food from the new store to distribute to neighbors in need through Food Lion Feeds’ industry-leading food rescue program. Food Lion Feeds has donated the equivalent of nearly 750 million meals since 2014 to food-insecure neighbors. For more on Food Lion Feeds, visit foodlion.com/feeds.
