Beginning February 18th, local grocer Lowes Foods is rolling out their brand new store concept, bringing customers a food-hall style similar to that of the local Optimist Hall food and beverage mall, as well as a space for customer and community events.
This brand new shopping and entertainment experience will be implemented in the new Huntersville location and will offer made-to-order, ready-to-eat, grab-and-go options with an in-store chef as the backbone for the entire culinary operation. It will also serve as an entertainment space for the community to gather for events and various planned experiences.
“Our new Huntersville store is like a food hall that will also serve as a community hub for morning coffee, family dinner on the go, beer with a friend, picking up groceries curbside, or a complete grocery shopping experience,” says Lowes Foods President Tim Lowe in a recent press release.
Shoppers can order a meal or drink at various kiosks such as The Chicken Kitchen, where prepared chicken as rotisserie, wings, pot pies, tenders, salad and soup will be served daily. Check out Sammy’s if you’re in the mood for a breakfast, lunch or dinner sandwich or salad. Head on over to the Cakery for a sweet treat. The Beer Den presents craft beers and drafts that you can drink while you shop, or feel free to take a load off your feet and saddle up to the in-house bar. Eat and drink while in the store or have it made to take home.
Other kiosks include the Bread Crumb bakery, Smokehouse, Divine Cut, Daily Deli, High Tide Fish Market, wine bar, and a “Pick and Prep” station, where fruits and veggies will be sliced, diced, minced or cubed. All produce is locally sourced, as Lowes Foods works with over 250 local farmers throughout the Carolinas; farmers such as Titan Farms in Ridge Spring, SC and Amick Farms in Batesburg-Leesville, South Carolina.
The new location will also feature a mezzanine that can be booked for events like birthday parties, book clubs, meetings and team celebrations. It will also be used for planned events such as trivia nights, board game tournaments, beer and wine tastings and more.
“Our new Huntersville store is like a food hall that will also serve as a community hub for morning coffee, family dinner on the go, beer with a friend, picking up groceries curbside, or a complete grocery shopping experience,” Lowes Foods President Tim Lowe said.

“We call this the Swiss Army Knife of grocery stores. We will have a tool for what you need to do,” says Tim Lowe, president of Lowes Foods. The grocer’s new concept store debuts in Huntersville in February. https://t.co/lu83uZCTOg
