Cayce, SC 01/27/2021. – Starting today, neighbors in Cayce, S.C., can nourish their families at their new local Food Lion located at 300 Knox Abbott Dr., Cayce, S.C. 29033. This is in the Parkland Plaza Shopping Center.
The new store will have approximately 75 associates and serve customers daily from 7 a.m. until 11 p.m. Food Lion recently completed the acquisition of this location, which was formerly a BI-LO, after announcing its plans last year to acquire 62 BI-LO/Harveys Supermarkets across the Carolinas and Georgia.
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.
Tim Smith, a native of the South Congaree area has been named the store's manager. He knows the area, retail, and how to make a store successful. His mother Charlotte was also a Cayce based small businessperson who operated the Red Wing Show Store on Knox Abbott Drive for decades. “I've lived in the Cayce/West Columbia area most of my life, and I'm so proud to have been able to serve this community over the last 30 years in the grocery business,” said Smith. “I am delighted to have the opportunity to continue to serve the Cayce community as a Food Lion store manager. I look forward to working with the great people of this city and its leaders, along with the dedicated associates here at Food Lion, to deliver an outstanding grocery shopping experience in Cayce."
Customers can choose from an extensive product assortment, including in-store fresh cut fruit 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 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 nearby Blythewood, S.C. A list of additional local vendors with products in the new store can be found here.
In another commitment to the Cayce community, through Food Lion Feeds – the retailer’s hunger-relief initiative – the retailer donated $1,500 in coolers and Food Lion gift cards to Ambassadors on the Move, an agency of Harvest Hope Food Bank. Ambassadors on the Move will use the coolers to safely transport food it will regularly receive from the new store to distribute to neighbors in need through Food Lion Feeds’ industry-leading food rescue program, which has donated the equivalent of more than 250 million meals to local hunger relief organizations across Food Lion’s footprint since 2014.
