The brown paper covering the windows indicates the closing of three Food Lion grocery stores in Columbia County, a week before their intended closing date. In mid-January, the grocery chain’s parent company, Delhaize America, announced the closing of 113 of its underperforming Food Lion stores. Parking lots were empty, windows were covered and doors were locked Tuesday afternoon at all three locations. Upon the stores announcing they were closing, they began taking 25% off everything, with the intent to go to 50% off after a about a week or so. My suggestion would have been that Food Lion, who decided to abandon scanning the food lion cards (which is another NON-discount they initiated in this big clearance), should have used the cards to enforce the "limit one per customer"rule, I'm convinced that alot of in and out, unloading carts and turning right around and going back in was going on.
It just could have worked out better for the folks that lived close by and were certainly deserving of a little break.
The attitude of corporate is an " us against them attitude", and oh by the way, we are better than you.
They didn't really close 'a week early' if your story goes on to say "Corporate officials said the stores would close Feb. The spent fuel, which comes from two German reactors that have ceased operations, originated in the U.S. According to a news release, underperforming Food Lion stores will be shut down in a total of nine states including Tennessee, Florida, Georgia, Kentucky, North Carolina, Pennsylvania, South Carolina, Virginia, and West Virginia, "primarily in markets in which the company has the least store density". Food Lion stores in Tennessee which will be closing are located in Athens, six stores in Chattanooga, Cleveland, Hixson, Clinton, Crossville, Knoxville, Maryville, Morristown, Sevierville, Clarksville, Hendersonville, Lewisburg, two stores in Murfreesboro, Old Hickory, Smyrna, Sparta, Greeneville, and Johnson City. Delhaize America is a leading supermarket operator with more than 1,600 stores in 16 states in the eastern United States. Delhaize Group, the Belgium-based parent company of the supermarket chain, announced Wednesday night that it is discontinuing the Food Lion brand in Florida and closing 113 stores, including 20 in the Jacksonville metropolitan area.The stores will close within 30 days. Spokeswoman Christy Phillips-Brown said this morning that each store averages about 35 employees. In a news release, CEO Pierre-Olivier Beckers said the economy and increased competition have hurt sales in the U.S. According to Bloomberg News, Delhaize?s stock has dropped 21 percent in the past year in trading on the Brussels exchange.

Delhaize will continue to operate 1,127 Food Lions in 10 states after closing 12 stores in Jacksonville and eight others in surrounding counties. While there will be no more Food Lions in Florida, the company will continue to operate supermarkets in the state under two other brand names, Sweetbay and Harveys.
Food Lion entered the Jacksonville market in 1987 with big plans to compete with the two supermarket chains that dominated the local market, Publix and Winn-Dixie.
Food Lion?s share of the Northeast Florida grocery market continued to slide in the 2000s as Walmart grew its Supercenters in the area, putting Food Lion fourth in the market, according to data from the Shelby Report of the Southeast.

Three Columbia County Food Lion stores will be closing, company officials announced Wednesday. Two of the three grocery stores to close in Columbia County were built less than three years ago, 526 N. Food Lion is the anchor tenant in the Shoppes at Petersburg on Old Petersburg Road and Village at Furys Ferry on Evans To Locks Road. Columbia County will still have Food Lions at 5157 Columbia Road and 806 Lewiston Road, Grovetown. Delhaize is converting 64 Bloom and Bottom Dollar Food stores in Maryland, North Carolina and Virginia to Food Lion stores and then retiring the Bloom name.
The developer in this project asked the county to allow a larger anchor store; the commissioners DENIED that request and sided with the residents who opposed increasing the size allowed for this zoning. When the residents asked the Commission not to allow construction of a large grocery store, I don't believe they had in mind a slightly smaller one.
But you mean the Commissioners actually listen to the residents about what can be built in various locations? The one on Wrightsboro Road will meet it's demise as soon as the new planned WalMart opens up there. Delhaize America operates under the banners Bottom Dollar Food, Food Lion, Harveys, Hannaford Supermarkets, Reid's and Sweetbay, each of which has a distinct strategy and a well-established brand image. Each store employs an average of 35 employees, which means almost 900 employees face layoffs in the state.

An 832,000-square-foot distribution center in Green Cove Springs that opened in 1988 to serve Food Lion stores in the market was closed in 2001.
The third is in the Home Depot-anchored Evans Exchange, which has been owned since 2010 by a Phoenix firm called Cole Real Estate Investments.
The company will provide severance to eligible workers and is encouraging affected workers to apply for job openings at other stores.
The developer lost his original anchor (Kroger) and built the project under the constraints the residents demanded, and this failure is a result.

But walk inside and you'll find every single thing has been grossly marked up so taking 75% off the marked price is maybe a few cents off. Through its multiple banners, Delhaize America is able to target the needs and requirements of specific markets, customize its product and service offerings and maintain strong brand recognition with its local customers. You have no reason to criticize the commissioners in this case; the residents got their way.
Windsor Spring Road survives because it is the only grocery store in that neck of the neighborhood, as does the one on Mike Padgett Highway. Squirt guns that were once 10 bucks are then marked at $25, taffy that was 3 bucks a box is now marked $10.
Those two stores have no competition, so it is not too hard to be the one when you are the only. I've also never used a coupon except for the little membership keyring thing they give you. I shop at Costco often enough to spot that fact that this overstock store's prices are right at the same thing Costco charges, or in the case of their 'huge' sales, marked up significantly so they then ring up a couple bucks less than Costco's price.
