Didn't know if anyone else had heard that Bi-Lo will be closing its doors on Tuesday and when they re-open it will no longer be Bi-Lo but an Aldi type store...FoodSmart or something like that. I really hate to see them close, I shopped there for years!

I believe it's called Bottom Dollar a Food Lion owned store. It is a Aldi type store.

Well, its going to be hard for anyone to compete with a SUPER Wal-Mart, I hope the Mom and Pop business in downtown Lenoir can survive it. I will try to support the locals, and will also be looking for deals at Wal- mart, heck, with the price of gas, we are practically forced to save any way we can

I ask one of my friends if they were closing .He told me they would close for a few days to redo the store.He said no they were not but maybe he was told not to tell anyone.I don't know

I went there today and most of their produce was gone. They had carts at the front of the store marked 'as low as $.10 each! The drink coolers at the front were getting low and they seemed to be running low on other things throughout the store. But it does seem that if they were closing they would be marking everything down like Food Lion and Winn Dixie did!?

They are closing...I know somebody that works there and he said they would close Tuesday for one week and then re-open as Food Smart.

Bi-Lo was one of the cheaper grocery stores and they offered double coupons which I personally took advantage of weekly and saved approximately $60.00 to $100.00 weekly with the double coupons alone. Lowes Foods has the highest prices of any grocery store in town but they are closing too along with the Food Lion on Wilkesboro Blvd which will reopen as Bottom Dollar. The Fairvalue grocery stores are also closing from what I was told.

I dont think Wal-Mart is really that much cheaper.Probably just depends on what you buy.

I hate that Bi-lo has closed, it's the only place I shop. Lowes and Food Lion are way over priced, and Fairvalue is dirty. I guess I will be forced to shop super Wal-mart which I don't like. When is it opening? Does anyone know?

Just beware of foods imported from China...
The FDA has repeatedly said that they can't possible monitor imported foods because of DEM. Congressional fincance cuts.

No Fairvalues are closing and Lowes Foods and Food Lion are staying open; whoever spreads those rumors are stupid; however, word is that FATZ is opening a location in Lenoir near the new Wal-Mart

Re: Food Lion on Wilkesboro Blvd. - I doubt they'd put a Bottom Dollar on that end of town... esp w/ Aldi so near. I heard someone in mgmt at Food Lion -east Lenoir- several weeks ago say they would be going thru the same facelift that the Food Lion in Blowing Rock got over the winter - it's a wonderful store now...

I was repeating what I was told by grocery store's management. Time will soon tell. What is FATZ? Never heard of it. Not stupid, hate to inform you....I am an educated person and don't call others that I don't know stupid.
