SALISBURY — Food Lion is now accepting mobile payments at its nearly 1,100 stores, including Apple Pay, Android Pay and Samsung Pay.

“We’re excited to introduce mobile payment options for our customers at local Food Lion stores,” said Greg Finchum, senior vice president of retail operations. “Customers asked us to make grocery shopping easier and more convenient, and this new payment process is another way we are helping our customers speed through the checkout line.”

Additionally, mobile pay isn’t the only process being streamlined at Food Lion’s check-out counter. The grocer has also completed its chip and pin rollout, enabling 100 percent of its stores to now accept chip and pin cards, offering customers yet another form of secure, enhanced payment.

Food Lion continues to integrate mobile and digital technologies for customers from a pilot at-home grocery delivery with the launch of Instacart in Charlotte and Raleigh to its digital MVP Coupon Hub where customers can access load-to-card coupons, to its online savings center housed on its website, which offers shoppers a customized grocery shopping experience from the moment they log in.

Serving 10 million customers each week at nearly 1,100 locations in 10 states, Food Lion was founded in 1957 and is based in Salisbury.
