Posted October 13, 2015

Food Lion is celebrating their newly remodeled stores by giving away free bags of groceries to the first 100 customers on Wednesday, October 14!

There is a ribbon cutting at 7:45 am at the newly remodeled stores and then they will be giving away the free groceries to the first 100 in line. Each remodeled store will have 100 bags of free groceries, according to the corporate office.

Participating stores: There are 162 participating stores in the greater Raleigh area. The list can be found at the very bottom of the Press Release here. Look for the red square with the words "Raleigh, NC Store List" next to it.

Food Lion is also giving away free plush mini lions to the first 100 customers each day at the remodeled stores from Wednesday, 10/14 - Saturday, 10/17.

The announcement about this promotion was on back page of the Focus section of Sunday's N&O. Thanks to Amy for the heads up!

Will you be waiting in line at the crack of dawn to secure your place in the top 100?

    I am so glad that so many of you were able to get the freebie! It's unfortunate that they allowed some to take more than one bag, though. I know that must have made you cranky, meredith88!

    Enjoy your freebies, everyone!

    I went this morning to Franklinton and received the same products and the $5 off of $20 coupon as the others. There were only 25 or so people in line. They also gave us a nice reusable bag with coupons in it (if you purchased something), several $2 off $20 purchase along with product coupons.

    The Cary stores I just called said they were all out.

    I forgot and overslept :-( I got to my store about 8:15 and was the 101st person so I didn't get the bag of groceries but the lady who walked in in front of me did. That'll teach me ;-) However, I was a little surprised to see multiple people exiting the store with more than one bag. Many people at my store were leaving with 2-4 of the free bags of groceries. I even asked them if they were all the free bags as they were leaving and the shoppers said yes, they got multiple.
    My mom went to the store on her side of town right at 7:45 and got the free bag. It had mostly the same products that EARLYCHD99 got.

    And a coupon for $5.00 off $20.00, this is nice surprise since I didn't get this coupon in the newspaper.

    I live in Wilson and we have 4 or 5 Food Lion locations. I stopped by the one that was on my way to work and they still had 30-40 bags left! Mine had all the same things that EARLYCHD99 got. I am thankful for anything for FREE because any little bit helps! Thanks for the heads up on this one, Faye :)

    Did anyone get the free groceries at FL this morning? Looking forward to hearing what they gave away.

    mary_elizabeth - I am pretty sure the bags are already filled and they will probably have a number of store brand non-perishable items.
