Food Lion, Soon To Be Bloom. Smithfield, VA

This Food Lion was built in 2003 during the time a new neighborhood was being built in Smithfield. This week, Food Lion announced that some stores would be converted to the more upscale “Bloom” moniker. Which makes sense due to all the fancy pants neighborhoods popping up, and the Farm Fresh a few miles down that is getting more fancy pants by the year.

  1. The newish one on Rt. 17 not far from the James River Bridge?

    I spaced out for a minute and mistook it for the older, just plain folks Food Lion on S. Church St. (Business Route 10). A closer look at your photo and I realized my mistake.

    Fancy pants-ing the old in-town Food Lion would be a big surprise. But yeah, in the case of the new one, it’s inevitable.
