Our four local Food Lion grocery stores (Lewes, Millville, Rehoboth Beach and Long Neck) have closed for good, but reopened on Friday 10/14 as Weis Markets.
Founded in 1912, Weis Markets is a Mid-Atlantic food retailer operating 171 stores in Pennsylvania, Maryland, New Jersey, New York, West Virginia, Virginia and now Delaware.
The ownership of Giant Food reached a deal with the owner of the Food Lion stores (Delhaize) to merge. In all, over 80 stores will be involved in this deal, and some may be sold off to other grocery store operators.
Former Food Lion employees were the first to be rehired during this process.
