Food Lion Closes 113 Stores, 7 in Upstate

Not surprising. These stores were “under performing” which is a nice way of saying the were losing money hand over fist. The company is offering the employees who qualify severance packages and encouraging the employees to apply to work at other locations – meaning good workers can find a spot if management want them and if not they’ll slap a fat check on them as a thank you, slackers are headed to the unemployment line with not even a commemorative Food Lion mug. Before you complain yeah, I was the guy who got taken care of by management because I was an asset.

The full list of store closings is here, but WSPA lists the seven upstate stores:

4377 Hwy 24, Anderson.

1332 S. Pleasantburg Dr., Greenville.

3093 S. Hwy 14, Greer.

11295 Asheville Hwy., Inman.

241 Hillcrest Dr., Laurens.

2430 Reidville Rd., Spartanburg.

230 Cedar Springs Rd., Spartanburg

Surprise! The economy sucks! When the local Blooms were closing or being absorbed they had some good deals, so maybe Food Lion will be the place to go until they’re completely shuttered.
