SALISBURY — Nearly 300 associates will celebrate over 30 years of service to Food Lion this year. Among them is Rockey Hester, the replenishment manager at the store in Creedmoor, who was recognized for 35 years of service.
“Recognizing associates who have shared their gifts and talents with Food Lion and nourished their neighbors for decades is incredibly important to us,” said Food Lion President Meg Ham.
“These dedicated associates have touched the lives of their fellow associates and customers alike. We are so fortunate to have such committed associates and I so appreciate the care, compassion and commitment they share with Food Lion and the towns and cities they serve.”
Food Lion recognizes these associates celebrating 30, 35, 40, and 45 years of service with the Years of Service Award. Each year, the omnichannel retailer holds a recognition event to share appreciation and gratitude for associates who have achieved these service milestones.
At the Years of Service Awards event, each associate’s name, position, location and service milestone are read aloud and celebrated.
