15 Bloom locations to convert to Food Lion

Salisbury, N.C. -- Delhaize America said Monday it plans to convert all of its Bloom stores in North and South Carolina to the Food Lion banner, with the exception of one Bloom store in Mauldin, S.C., that will close.

According to a report by Supermarket News, the 15 Bloom locations in the Charlotte and Greenville, S.C., markets will be converted "as quickly as possible."

The company said it plans to continue expansion of the Bloom banner in the southeastern Virginia and Washington, D.C., areas, and that "efforts are underway to further strengthen the brand and poise it for continued success in these markets."
