Food Lion - Prices being wrong all the time

I shop at the Foodlion on Bridge Road(1173). The prices are always wrong and when asked why I was told the price coordinator changes the prices on Tuesday every week. I don't understand why this is happening?! I thought the sales were on Wednesday?! The Foodlion ad tells you what is on sale but it is really different then the prices in the store. I have an issue at checkout with this every time I shop! Please help!

Desired outcome: Prices to be correct!

Food Lion - Terrible since renovation

This store is on Brittingham Lane in Princess Anne, Md. Since it was renovated several months ago shopping here is a complete waste of time. Fully 75% of sale items are not in stock. This is not an exaggeration I actually counted the empty shelves where sale items were supposed to be stocked. I overheard other shoppers complaing about the same thing.
On my last trip there I found so many common items (not even sale items) I needed were not available or no longer carried that I pushed my cart with the few items I could find, up to the cashier area, left it there and walked out the door.
I drove 10 more miles up the road to Walmart (Acme Markets is just a bit further up the road too). I was able to get everything I needed at WalMart's grocery section.
I won't even bother stopping at Food Lion anymore, I'll just drive the extra miles to Walmart or Acme and avoid the frustration and waste of my time. Food Lion needs to close this store.

Desired outcome: Stock what you advertise or close this waste of time store !!

Food Lion - Bad management

I worked at Food Lion in 37388. I really thought I would be there for a long time. I had a rocky start in my training. It was during a reset and some floor and painting work. I made allowances for that. Then a few weeks later I realized I would never get proper training if I was only given one day a week.
The I wanted to apply for a position that was a step up. I waited for it to be posted. I was told we would be told when we could apply. I ask about and was told it was already closed. I was crushed. A few days later I was told to work at the bagging end and help out. Then a short time later I was told I could do that; I need to stand at the other end of the registers. I mean what am I supposed to do?
The next day I was treated even worse. I was pushed from one place to another. I mean what is that all about. I was hurt. I wanted to accomplish something with my job. But when another employee let it slip that I was not liked and wanted to leave. I told myself that day I would never be back in the store again.
I have to go back one time. I will take back the shirt and get my pay. But I will never go back to Food Lion again.

Desired outcome: All new front end management

Food Lion - Customer service always closed

Everyday the customer service office is always closed. Whats the sense in having the slogan, always here to serve you if it's always closed. It's very aggravating and a big disappointment when you walk in the store expecting to be able to purchase money orders to put your bills in the mail and its closed. That's not serving the customers. Poor mgmt

Desired outcome: Customer service being open to serve the customers

Food Lion - MVP Program and Shop and Earn

I frequently shop at Food Lion because it is close by and I've spent over $500 in the month of June, 2021. With each purchase I am supposed to be receiving credits for ‘Shop and Earn' in certain categories such as breads, frozen foods, meats and seafood, beverages, snacks and bakery, etc. after submitting multiple copies of receipts and requesting repeatedly I am still missing the bonus offers for two more categories and I'm tired of having to constantly send emails because some thing and Food Lion system is not giving credit to items that I purchase. Management in the store is unable to do anything and simply tells me to just "keep trying". Specifically, $30 spent in frozen food is supposed to garner a four dollar reward. In a single purchase I spent $22 in frozen foods and on the next trip another $18. I have exceeded the $30 needed to earn the reward and will have to send another email to plead with Food Lion to apply the $3.

Desired outcome: Please credit my purchases

Food Lion - Mortons Lite Salt

Why have all the newly renovated stores in central VA changed so many products? One most needed is to re-stock Morton's Lite Salt. I have been using this product for years and now I have to order needed items from
Wal -Mart. I would much rather purchase this product locally. PLEASE consider
returning this item in your stores, please.
Thank you,
Lisa Wright

Food Lion - Meat

My wife and I eat filet steaks three times a week .'Foodlions in Wilmington Carolina Beach Store
S are not selling filet, they are advertised as filet but you can't even fit them with a sharp steak knife .
You will lose a lot of customers including us that have to go to Harris Tetter,
They are ruining your reputation!
We spend a lot of money weekly on groceries and I wonder how much business you are losing with such terrible lying on your steaks !
