Bloom Grocery StoresBloom is an up-scale supermarket owned by Food Lion, LLC which operates in the Southeast and Mid-Atlantic States. The company is a division of Delhaize America.

In response to consumer demands, Food Lion LLC conceived, developed and opened the first Bloom in Charlotte, N.C. in 2004. Originally called Bloom and dubbed with the phrase “A Food Lion Market,” it was based on the concept that grocery shopping should be fun. With wider aisles, organizing foods and products into logical groups was just the beginning of the company’s consumer-friendly platform. Since its inception, Bloom has expanded to 65 locations across the Southeast and Mid-West.

Geared toward customer convenience and in an attempt to make grocery shopping enjoyable for the customer, Bloom gathers its employees regularly to chant cheerfully, thereby creating a cheery atmosphere that further enhances its non-traditional supermarket layout scheme. The company prides itself on its store design, which includes easy-to-navigate aisles, and its guarantee of no lines at check-out time.

Offering prepared, ready-to-eat meals in the “Table Top” section at the entrance to every store, in addition to offering errand service while shopping, Bloom claims to have redefined grocery shopping. Keeping customers as the primary consideration when making decisions within a Bloom market, the company has offered shoppers the ability to scan and bag their provisions while shopping so that they have a running total of purchases that allows for keeping within budget. There are what the company calls interactive kiosks to help with recipe and wine selections for special meals.

Bloom also offers a 200 percent refund on any fresh product that is unsatisfactory (with receipt), as well as a rebate program, called Breeze, that awards 1 percent for every dollar spent at the store: customers can choose to have their rebate forwarded to any local school or charity.

With careful market considerations, Bloom has thus far been successful with its newly formatted grocery stores. Only after meticulous growth and economic studies will Bloom choose a site for a new market. Demands for Bloom stores are considered seriously on a case-by-case basis; every complaint, request and comment is reviewed and resolved. Food Lion LLC saw the need, filled it and has successfully made grocery shopping into a fun activity.

    I live in Sterling, VA and have just been informed that you are converting your Bloom's Market in Great Falls Plaza back to a Food Lion in September. I'm sure your have your reasons, but I am sorry to hear that. I always enjoy shopping at Blooms. I usually find "something" in your weekly flyer that causes me to do my weekly shopping at Blooms. I especially like your meat department and the fact that you ONLY sell Angus beef. I occasionally shop at Safeway or Giant, but I have been disappointed too many times with my meat purchases at those chains. Only once was I disappointed with my meat purchase at Blooms and the store manager apologized and cheerfully refunded my money. I will miss Blooms and I am sorry it did not work out for you.

      My comment was meant for Blooms management, not the general public.

        The store is called Bloom, not Blooms.

    Your Bloom store on Shore Drive & Great Neck Road is a wonderful store with super employees! The only drawback is that the trash dumpsters in the back of the store by some parking are disgusting! The ground around the dumpsters really needs to be cleaned up and pressure-washed especially with the walk/running/bike path so close to the store plus Marina Shore Condos are right there, also. Just a friendly comment.
