          Lowe's Food Stores, Inc. is pleased to announce the opening of a newly updated location in Boone, NC on Wednesday, June 12th. The Boone location will celebrate with special events all week including free product giveaways, special coupons, free food tastings, wine and beer samplings and in-store specials.  The freshly remodeled store at 267 New Market Centre will be open from 6 am until 12 am Monday through Sunday. 

          Many new features have been added which are designed to give customers an even more pleasant and convenient shopping experience.  The produce department has an expanded variety of locally grown produce and enhanced selection.  The store now has an updated deli department with a newly expanded hot bar, and the frozen department has been expanded to include more variety in items.

          New to this location is the popular Lowes Foods to Go personal shopping service.  Lowes Foods to Go shopping orders are placed either online or by telephone six days per week for a nominal per shopping fee of $4.95.  As part of the celebration, customers at the Boone location can try their first month of Lowes Foods to Go for FREE.  See store staff for promotion code.  Customers receive all the same great benefits that they receive when shopping inside a Lowes Foods store: 

  • Fill your online cart with great sale items directly from the online circular
  • Coupon specials still apply
  • Lowes Foods 200% quality freshness guarantee

          With a three hour lead time, orders can then be picked up curbside at the store.  Customers never leave their vehicle as their personal shoppers load the groceries into the car and even provide portable credit card payment curbside.  More information can be found at our Lowes Foods to Go page or by calling 888.537.8646. 

          Other features include NuVal® nutritional scoring system and Gas Rewards.  NuVal® gives an overall nutritional score from 1 to 100 for most products throughout the store allowing customers to view the nutrition value of an item at a glance.  The Gas Rewards promotion allows customers to earn 5¢ off per gallon of gas for every $100 they spend in the store.  The store has also launched its 2013 Locally Grown Club.  Each week through September 7th, customers can order boxes of hand selected local produce at special pricing.  Single week or multiple week plans are available.  Visit the Lowes Foods site for more information on these and other special programs.
