Food Lion is proud to announce more than 350 associates are celebrating more than 30 years of service this year.

Among them are three long-term associates from stores in Statesville:

♦ Marc Stikeleather, center store manager, 30 years of service;
♦ Cary Alexander, produce sales associate, 35 years of service; and
♦ Ronda Taylor, pricing coordinator, 35 years of service

On April 18, associates were honored during an annual event where the retailer shares appreciation and gratitude for long-term associates, presenting them with the Years of Service Award. These individuals bring Food Lion’s brand, strategy and culture to life and have served their towns and cities for 30, 35, 40, 45 and 50 years.

At the event, each associate’s name, position, location and service milestone were read aloud and celebrated. Collectively, their tenure is 12,320 years.

“Recognizing the dedication and contributions of our associates who have served Food Lion for many years is a true honor for us,” said Meg Ham, president of Food Lion. “Their commitment to excellence, care for our customers and impact in the towns and cities we serve is invaluable. We are incredibly fortunate to have such passionate and dedicated associates who continue to make a positive difference every day.”

Food Lion employs 82,000 associates at more than 1,100 stores across 10 states.
