Food Lion Advertisement, Early 1990’s

Food Lion Ad, Early 90's.

Back in 2002 mom gave me these magazines from the early 90’s, I ripped out all the advertisements and put them in a folder for future use.

This is the way Food Lion looked when mom and I started to shop there because everybody in Hampton was shopping there.

I don’t particularly like Food Lion. Most of the stores are junky and overpriced.


  1. “I don’t particularly like Food Lion. Most of the stores are junky and overpriced.”

    Really? Ever since they redid most of their stores in the past couple years, they look a bit more upscale. My Food Lion’s deli/bakery has hardwood flooring and an organic foods section. It’s no Farm Fresh or Harris Teeter but it looks a lot better than IGA.

    • The only Food Lion I can barely tolerate is the one in Windsor, VA that has the organic section.

  2. Now I feel silly. I always thought Food Lion was a regional Asian-supermarket! Guess I’ll give it a try, now. Although, if it’s junkie and overpriced, I may not buy anything!

  3. I’m thinking those pictures could definitely pass for the current average Food Lion.
