Food Lion Closings Set

(Fredericksburg)- Nine Fredericksburg-area Food Lion stores will begin to close next Friday and be converted to Weis Markets. Sunbury, Pennsylvania-based Weis is buying 38 Food Lion supermarket locations in Virginia, Maryland and Delaware from Delhaize Group, Food Lion’s parent company, as a part of a merger with Royal Ahold. The closings will be in rolling fashion with several closing each week. Weis says it plans to reopen each location less than a week after it closes.
