Starting Wednesday, April 28, neighbors in Travelers Rest, S.C., can nourish their families at their newest local Food Lion located at 148 Walnut Ln., Travelers Rest, S.C. 29690. The new store will have approximately 75 associates and serve customers daily from 7 a.m. until 11 p.m.

In addition to its longstanding heritage of low prices, Food Lion also makes shopping easy and affordable for customers through its MVP loyalty program, its award-winning personalized Shop & Earn monthly rewards offers and with weekly promotions, hot sales, and everyday low prices.

"I started in the grocery industry at 16 as a bagger for gas money and to pay car insurance and I never left,” said Jan Bowen, store manager of the new Travelers Rest Food Lion. “Being a store manager is so rewarding. Whether you are serving associates or customers, you have a chance to make a difference every day in your neighbors’ lives. I look forward to opening the Travelers Rest Food Lion and offering our community an expanded variety with great low prices that they can count on every day."

Customers can choose from an extensive product assortment, including in-store cut fresh fruits and vegetables, “grab-and-go” meal options to help make any meal easier, delicious hand-battered fried chicken and 100% USDA Choice fresh beef.

The store also offers a variety of Food Lion’s Nature’s Promise-brand beef, pork, poultry, milk, eggs, bottled water, cereal, coffee and other items. Nature’s Promise is Food Lion’s affordable brand of wholesome and organic products made with no artificial flavors, preservatives or synthetic colors.

Additionally, neighbors can find an expanded variety of great local South Carolina offerings, such as fresh produce from W.P. Rawl Farms from Pelion, S.C., Columbia’s-own Cromer’s Popcorn and Iron City Coffee freshly roasted in Blythewood, S.C. A list of additional local vendors with products in the new store can be found here.

In another commitment to the community, through Food Lion Feeds – the retailer’s hunger-relief initiative – the retailer donated $1,500 to Harvest Hope Food Bank. The food bank or one of its local agencies will also regularly receive food from the new store to distribute to neighbors in need through Food Lion Feeds’ industry-leading food rescue program. Food Lion Feeds has donated the equivalent of more than 750 million meals since 2014 to food-insecure neighbors.
