Grocery store reopens as a new Food Lion location in Augusta



AUGUSTA, Ga. – Starting Wednesday, a grocery store at 2803 Wrightsboro Road will reopen as the newest local Food Lion.

As a Food Lion, the former BI-LO will have about 75 associates and serve customers daily from 7 a.m. until 11 p.m.

Food Lion recently completed the acquisition of the location after announcing its plans last year to acquire 62 BI-LO and Harveys supermarkets across the Carolinas and Georgia.

The company says the store will offer:

  • An extensive product assortment, including “grab-and-go” meal options.
  • Hand-battered fried chicken.
  • 100% USDA Choice fresh beef.
  • Nature’s Promise beef, pork, poultry, milk, eggs, bottled water, cereal, coffee and other items. The brand is described as wholesome and organic, without artificial flavors, preservatives or synthetic colors.
  • Regional offerings, like products from Georgia companies like Norman Farms, Lee Corp. Hardy Farms Peanuts.

The company said it also donated $1,500 to Golden Harvest Food Bank. The food bank will also regularly receive food from the store to distribute.
