Food Lion is expanding its presence in North Carolina’s Triad region with the opening of a new location to the west of Winston-Salem in the community of Kernersville. 

With a grand opening set for March 15, the store located at 1014 N. Main St. will feature an extensive product assortment, fresh sushi, hand-battered fried chicken, in-store cut fruit and a wide variety of affordable and easy “grab-and-go” options to help make any meal easier. 

Other notable features include 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.

“I’ve enjoyed getting to know our neighbors in the community this past year while serving at our previous store and volunteering at local schools,” said Ashley Hodgin, store manager of the new Kernersville Food Lion. “My team and I are looking forward to nourishing our neighbors at our new location.”

The store will also offer a wide variety of local offerings, including baked goods from Winston-Salem’s Dewey’s Bakery, granola from Big Boss Baking Company in High Point, and freshly brewed beer from Foothills Brewing in Winston-Salem. A list of additional North Carolina-based suppliers that may be featured in the store can be found here.

Furthering Food Lion’s commitment to sustainability, the store is equipped with energy-efficient overhead LED lighting
