New Food Lion opens in Irmo this week

Irmo. SC 03/26/2021 - On Wednesday, March 24, neighbors in Irmo, S.C., had an opportunity to visit their newest local Food Lion. It is located at 6021 Saint Andrews Rd., Columbia, S.C. 29212. This is actually just in the Town of Irmo, SC close to the intersection of St. Andrews and Piney Grove Roads near the SHAW industrial site.

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.

"I am excited to open the newest Food Lion in Columbia,” said Clyde Ash, store manager of the store. “I have lived in this community for 38 years and have managed the previous store at this location for 19 years. I am proud to have a fantastic team to help the community with all of their grocery needs, and we are so excited to welcome in family, friends and the community. I am excited for all of our new and returning customers to see the addition of variety and freshness that we offer.”

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 the food pantry at Living Hope, which is an agency of the Harvest Hope Food Bank. The food pantry 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 nearly 750 million meals since 2014 to food-insecure neighbors.
