Carolinas-based grocer Lowes Foods officially confirmed today that the chain will be opening a Lexington location at the corner of Augusta Highway/U.S. 1 and Charter Oaks Road across from Lexington High School.

The Lexington location will be the first Columbia-area store for the chain and is expected to open in early 2017.

“Our Lexington store will be very focused on supporting local, while providing exceptional attention to our guests,” Lowes Foods president Tim Lowe said. “Our commitment to local includes offering produce sourced through our partnership with over 200 local farmers, and featuring a wide assortment of unique local products found throughout the store.”

Key features of the Lexington store will include special store areas called Lowes Foods Originals, which include: Chicken Kitchen, SausageWorks, Pick & Prep, The Beer Den, and the Community Table. In an effort to tout the promotion of locally grown products, Lowes Foods will also feature a “pick your own herbs” section in the front of the store that will allow customers to clip a fresh sprig of rosemary or thyme. The store will also offer their Lowes Foods-To-Go online personal shopping service.
