Many Food Lion stores like store 2507 (Twin Hickory Town Center, 11371 Nuckols Road, Glen Allen, Virginia 23059-5504) are in need of major updates. Updates in stores in North Carolina have slightly improved the stores and their sales. They are not enough to compete against Publix and Walmart's Neighborhood Market stores.

The people who live near that FL are mainly upper middle class. Demolishing it is the only acceptable improvement.

Food Lion #2507 could see reuse as a fitness center, thrift store, or a furniture store.

I think it's a foregone conclusion that Publix will buy the soon-to-be-former Martin's locations at Stony Point Shopping Center and Hanover Square. And they should look at space at either Dumbarton Square or across the street at Staples Mill & Glenside.

Also the one in Gayton Crossing that closed a few years ago and is still empty.

Only thing about Gayton location is that it sits directly behind Kroger.

I read that Kroger tried to lease that space recently and was unsuccessful. If true, it's like someone else beat them to it. This deal with Publix on Nuckols has been in the works since last summer.

Publix has been planning its expansion into Virginia for two years. It is possible it has more store sites planned in addition to the two stores recently announced. Before it announces more stores, its distribution unit should expedite plans for a distribution center somewhere in the Charlotte Division.

I've watched Aldi employees stock pork with Aldi brand labeling coming out of Smithfield shipping boxes. Price some pork products at Aldi then price the same product with Smithfield labeling at regular price at a regular supermarket. The fresh chicken is Tyson. Plain mashed potatoes are Idahoan. Look at the packaging & you can usually narrow it down to whose product it is. Their mesquite turkey lunch meat is Oscar Meyer. Try to find the old-fashioned foil-wrapped Christmas & Easter chocolates at those prices. Not chocolate flavor, it's European chocolate.

It normally doesn't make a difference whether a product is produced by a name brand or private label manufacturer. Most production facilities produce both name brand and private label products. Not only are private label products produced in facilities operated by name brand manufacturers. Many name brand products are also produced in facilities operated by private label manufacturers. We have many examples in Germany where well known name brand companies have sold some of their facilities to unknown private label manufacturers. The unknown company still produces the products for the name brand company besides private label products. They all try to maximize the utilization of the production facilities. It's also completely normal, that an ex name brand manufacturer quit their name brands (maybe because it's getting to expensive to invest constantly millions in advertising) and start producing private label products. Those companies have grown strongly through the rise of private label products.
The quality of the private label products is defined by the retailer. The quality depends on how much the purchaser is willing to spend.
