Why? Because We're Beaufort County, and We're Better Than You Are.....


You've seen the Taj MaHonda.... Now take a look at the newest place around the corner in Okatie (pronounced Oak-uh-tee)...... Maybe you can't tell what it is. It's a Food Lion. Yes, the same supermarket chain that couldn't keep the beef of the floor of the butcher dept. a few years back, has a store with real brick exteriors and laminate flooring !!
How come? Because it's Beaufort County, and they make you spend an extra billion dollars making whatever YOU want however THEY want. Seriously, we don't have a sign up that says Honda yet, so we put up a banner on the building, and they made us take it down... Granted, the area does look pretty good thanks to it. Makes you kinda jealous, doesn't it?

Food Lion has replaced a few strip mall sites with more upscale brick faced stores. The one that was hit by the Wando HS football players that were at the center of some opposition to Scarlett Wilson's primary race is similarly upscale.

It isn't a Harris Teeter, Kroger, Albertson's or Whole Foods; but it is a step up from the blank-mart sterile feel.

You like Blue, Bobbo?

Yes, Food Lion is getting as bit more upscale at the other stores (even S. Florence has some laminate in the produce dept.), but this one has an entire aisle of organic, tofu and 60 specialty drinks - but no caviar.
