Glad something is going into that shopping center. Good luck to The Fresh Market. Hopefully it will help draw others there. I hate to see so much new construction when there are so many empty stores.

Dis- how do you figure that is new construction? They remodeled the old Circuit City store, which has been empty for quite a long time.

Hopefully it'll attract less pretentious d-bags that go to whole foods and trader joe's. And for the majority of you that go to these places, you don't have to be miserable inconsiderate rude pretentious negative snobs. DIAF. For those few that also patronize those stores that actually show a decorum of class, are polite, have respect for others, and have a generally positive attitudes, please disregard.

The problem with food lion is that it sucks in terms of service, produce, meat, fish, selection (non-GMOs, organics, and rSBT dairy) and store cleanliness. I don't mind paying 10-20% more for quality. But just because I can, doesn't mean I have be a jerk to those around me, and in fact, go out of my way to be especially courteous and pleasant.

That's nice, I'm sure it gets their attention.

C'mon it's not that dirty. I don't eat meat, or buy fish there, but their lettuce is a pretty good deal and looks just as good as WF. Their store brand OJ (non-concentrate) is relatively cheap.
"Organic" is not always what it's cracked up to be. That said, I'm addicted to WF's 12 grain bread. Raisin pecan is good too (but over $6/loaf)

This is great, if they really do bring in local producers! They mention their own coffee a bit, hopefully Trager Brothers will get their coffee in their stores! That'd save me some mileage and time!

I have to admit, sometimes it's hard not to be condescendingly polite to d-bags.

I didn't call WF's dirty, I called Food Lion(s) dirty. I selectively shop, for the top combination of service and quality, I like Harris Teeter. You can't beat the cheese selection at WF's and the house wine at TJ's is not bad, and great at $4/btl. I like that TJ's is non-rBST dairy. If you like Rosemary, you ought to try their olive oil rosemary bread, HT's is pretty good, too. If I have one carb weakness, it's that. Though, you can tell they add a lot of gluten to it. We've tried with some of the lighter northern hard wheats, but it's difficult to duplicate without adding gluten.

I know. I was talking about FL not being that dirty. WF is fine except for the occasional fly around the salad bar. Pulled pork from there is good. The Rosemary bread is great. I can't come remotely close to approaching their 12 grain bread. I've tried no-knead, different flours, etc.

Your newscast on the opening fails to inform the public "where" in "Albemarle County" the store is located. Thank you

I am chauffeured to high end dining locations and don't frequent places where the masses shop.
Self check out? Shopping carts? How demeaning.
