Before & After: Food Lion, Plaza-Midwood

This store is one of Charlotte's older grocery stores, however it hasn't always been a Food Lion. According to the tax site and Groceteria, the store opened in 1960 originally as a Winn-Dixie. Winn Dixie closed in 1987, and in 1991 Food Lion moved in. The store, still with its narrow parking lot, serves customers in Charlotte's Plaza-Midwood, Country Club and NoDa neighborhoods. It is also the closest Food Lion store to Uptown Charlotte. There is approximately 36,000 square feet of shopping space inside and the before and after reflects the upgrades that were made to the store over the past couple of years.

I don't know what to think of the new paint scheme. It's softer and more modern, but I don't know if it looks better

I actually saw this store in person today! I was in the neighborhood, and though I didn't check out the interior, it looks better in person.
