Lowes Foods closes 3 old stores to make room for new

Posted October 9, 2013

— Lowes Foods said Wednesday that it will be closing three stores in North Carolina as part of its strategic plans for 2014. 

Lowes Foods at 210 Avery Ave., in Morganton, and two JustSave stores at 807 Main St., in Scotland Neck, and 516 E. Nash St., in Spring Hope, will close by mid-November.

Employees in the closing stores will be offered positions at other Lowes Foods and JustSave stores, and some may be eligible for financial assistance to transition to new positions.

Company representatives said the store closings are a part of an “aggressive capital expansion program” for 2014. Construction is expected to begin this week on a store in Jacksonville, and stores are currently under construction in Carolina Forest and Pawleys Island, S.C.

The company said it also plans to remodel many of its stores in the Carolinas.

    seems they quietly closed the Lowes on Millbrook/Capital based on the website store locations....

    The Lowes food in Spring Hope was a joke anyway. Their bakery section was laughable. And, their deli was just as pathetic.
