Delhaize America, the parent of the Food Lion chain of grocery stores, has announced that it would, "close 113 underperforming Food Lion stores, primarily in markets in which the company has the least store density."

The two Beaufort locations (one on Lady's Island and one near Shell Point) will remain open, while the Hilton Head Island location is due to close within 30 days.

You can read the company's full announcement over here.

Several Food Lions will close in the Charleston area; you can view a full list of closures over here or in the map below.

Relatedly in late December, it was announced that many Sears and Kmart locations would close — however  the individual closings were not announced.
