“Food Lion To-Go” is available at five locations in the region. There will be a ribbon-cutting ceremony held at each location at 8:45 a.m. on Monday to officially introduce the service.
The new service lets customers buy food items without having to leave their house until their scheduled pick-up time and, the chain says, it can all be done in under an hour.
Food Lion To-Go will be available at the following stores in the region starting Oct. 29:
- 13478 Carrollton Blvd, Carrollton

According to a press release from Food Lion, this service costs $5.99 per pick-up and requires a $10 minimum per order. However, shoppers can get their first pick-up order for free.
“We are so excited to bring this option to these stores in Hampton Roads,” said Deborah Sabo, senior vice president of marketing at Food Lion in a press release. “This new service gives our area customers another way to make their shopping experience easier as we continue our longstanding heritage of low prices and affordability.”
