I am very disappointed of Food Lion Return Policy. I couldn't return spoiled meat because I didn't have a receipt. I took the meat out of the freezer to cook but it was spoiled. it was stored in the freezer for about a week by then I had discard the receipt into the garbage so, when I went to the store I didn't have a receipt. the manager refused to exchange and/or refund my purchase. Food Lion symbol was attached to the price sticker on the meat package. Food Lion have lost a customer

I hear you on that Food Lion is extremely racist,also towards poor people.I'm a white male but they follow me around every single time I go in there to shop.I would shop groceries elsewhere but I don't have a car and they are the only grocery in walking distance.The lines are also always jammed,poor customer service,and very poor management.It's a shame.

racist people all over all the locations of food lion.they never hire hispanic people there but sell latino products.as soon as hispanics go in they are talking through their microphones and looking at you in mean ways and dont even say hello welcome to food lion unless your white or black.in winston salem and north carolina.shame shame and to return back products they tell you you need a receipt or cant return.

as an employee of food lion I have a question about the return policy and double money back guarantee.i understand that a customer can return a product with or without a receipt and get double of what they paid..what if they've used EBT card and have no receipt? also I was told that one of our managers was asked if we as an employee buys something and needs to return it then we may have a problem..she said she would tell us "really? and take money outta our pockets?"..that doesn't seem right or maybe we should stop shopping there just in case that problem arises...
