Food Lion's new store in Inwood, W. Va.

Food Lion has been a presence in the Inwood, W. Va. community for more than 30 years, and is now strengthening its relationship with residents in the area with the opening of a new store.

Beginning Feb. 8, shoppers will be able to enjoy the new location at 130 Duella Dr. The first 100 customers in line following a ribbon cutting ceremony will receive a mystery gift card valued up to $200 and free reusable shopping bag. 

“I’ve had the pleasure of serving the Inwood community for the past seven years and have appreciated the opportunity to meet many of our wonderful neighbors,” said Jay Moaveni, store manager of the new Inwood Food Lion. “Our neighbors have always trusted us to nourish their family, and my team and I are excited to bring them this new store to make shopping even easier. I think customers will be thrilled to see everything we have to offer!”

The new store features an extensive product assortment, fresh sushi, in-store cut fruit and a wide variety of affordable and easy “grab-and-go” options to help make any meal easier. Customers have a large selection of organic, gluten-free and plant-based items to choose from, including Nature’s Promise-brand items, which are Food Lion’s affordable brand of wholesome and organic products made with no artificial flavors, preservatives or synthetic colors. Additionally, the store features a walk-in produce cooler, ensuring the freshest items available, and a self-service hot wing and Asian food bar.

To make shopping easier for customers, the store offers self-checkout lanes and the Food Lion To Go grocery pick up service. Online orders may be placed on the Food Lion To Go website or the Food Lion To Go app. The convenient service allows customers to place an order with the click of a button while experiencing the same low prices and fresh food items they receive in the store.

The store is proud to also offer a wide variety of great local offerings, such as Custard Stand hot dog chili; in-season produce from Orr’s Farm Market; and pepperoni rolls from Home Industry Bakery. A list of additional West Virginia-based suppliers that may be featured in the store can be found here.

Furthering Food Lion’s commitment to sustainability, the store features energy-efficient overhead LED lighting. Food Lion is the only company in the country to receive the Energy Star Partner of the Year Award from the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency and the U.S. Department of Energy for 21 consecutive years.

As part of the grand opening celebration, the grocer’s Food Lion Feeds will donate 15,000 meals to Community Cupboard, an agency of Mountaineer Food Bank. Food Lion Feeds is the retailer’s hunger-relief initiative. The food bank will also regularly collect food from the store to distribute to neighbors in need through Food Lion Feeds’ industry-leading food rescue program, in which food safe for human consumption is donated to a local feeding agency before the food spoils. Food Lion Feeds has donated more than 1 billion meals to neighbors in need since 2014.
