CHARLESTON, S.C. (WCIV) -- Officials with Food Lion say the company is beefing up 169 stores in the Carolinas and created 500 new jobs, 66 of which are in the Charleston area.

Grand re-opening festivities are being held at 169 stores starting Wednesday Nov. 13. The first 50 customers at these locations could win a free bag of groceries.

"With today's launch, nearly all Food Lion stores have received these store investments," said Greg Finchum, senior vice president of retail operations for Food Lion. "We invite customers to visit their local Food Lion, where they will experience firsthand new lower prices and other store enhancements, such as the greatest value in store brands and fresher produce. We hope that you will visit your local Food Lion and experience our changes."

Customers will find lower prices on 6,000 items throughout the store and new MVP Savings Centers where they can scan their MVP Card to receive personalized offers.{}
