China Grove Food Lion opens, gives donations to local groups

CHINA GROVE — A new Food Lion store opened Wednesday at 1408 North Main Street.

The store will be open from 7 a.m. to 11 p.m.

The new manager of the store location is Rodney Moore, who said he joined Food Lion as a 16-year-old bagger at the previous China Grove location.

“I’m passionate about this community because I’m a part of it. I grew up here and even went to school at China Grove Middle and South Rowan High. I look forward to showing our neighbors this brand-new store in my hometown,” Moore said.

Customers can choose from an expanded product assortment, including in-store fresh-cut fruit and vegetables, more “grab-and-go” meal options to help make dinner easier, expanded catering selections and the Food Lion To-Go service, which enables customers to order their favorite items for convenient pickup and delivery.

Earlier this week, Moore and other local Food Lion associates delivered thermal lunch bags filled with portable snacks and hand sanitizer to show appreciation to first responders and businesses in the town of China Grove.

In another commitment to the China Grove community, a news release said, Food Lion Feeds is donating $5,000 to Main Street Marketplace, which helps nourish neighbors in need in the community. The funding will assist Main Street Marketplace in upfitting their facility to safely manage their day-to-day operations and volunteer areas.
