That Food Lion will remain busy because of it's low, everyday prices. Not everyone can afford HT's steep price points!

I doubt Food Lion's extra high prices would be considered low, everyday prices.

If there's a Food Lion I would be worrying about, it would be the one on MLK Jr Blvd and McCarthy Drive, not the one in James City. It's sandwiched right in between Walmart, Harris Teeter, and Publix

Extra high prices? Huh? Their prices are low--especially compared to HT. HT is the most overpriced grocer in the area.

The secret to HT is to get their emails, and plan you shopping around the weekly specials.

They have enough over time that you can pretty much shop specials alone. I routinely save 40 - 50%, of course, that is off the higher initial prices, but still, it is not too bad if you shop specials only. The key is to stay with the specials!

And I agree, FL is almost always way cheaper than HT.

I do not know what ship you are sailing in. I know Food Lion's stores in the western Carolinas have higher prices than Ingle's, Publix, and Walmart. That could be a reason for having fewer stores.

Thanks! Do you know if the existing one is going to stay until the Market thing opens, or is it going to stay forever, highly unlikely, but I don't know.
