Opening February 18th, Charlotte is about to have entertainment all day long at the new Lowes Foods. If you thought going to the grocery store was a hassle, now it’s about to be filled with fun.

This month, Lowes Foods is opening its first store with entertainment in Charlotte. At 4021 Boren St. in Huntersville, this new one-of-a-kind grocery store will offer entertainment. How does that work? Lowes Foods will not only sell bananas, milk, and bread but will also serve as a community center.

“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 in a statement.

The new features in this concept store include:

  • Mezzanine available for booking for birthday parties, book clubs, team celebrations, and group meetings, as well as a spot to eat and enjoy a beverage.
  • Promotion of locally sourced goods, including a bakery, smokehouse, and wine bar.
  • Lowes Foods to Go app to order groceries for curbside pickup or delivery.
  • The Beer Den with craft beers and drafts; “pick and prep” station to have fruits and vegetables sliced, diced, minced, or cubed.
  • The Chicken Kitchen, prepared chicken as a rotisserie, wings, pot pies, tenders, salad, and soup.
  • Sammy’s offers breakfast, lunch, or dinner sandwiches and salads to eat in-store or take home.
  • Organized events on the upper and lower mezzanine levels, such as floral arranging classes, trivia nights, board game tournaments, and beer and wine tastings.
  • Easy shopping with Lowes Foods’ new app called Scan*Pay*Go. Customers can scan items as they shop, then checkout at marked kiosks as they leave.

Lowes Foods also has two Charlotte-area locations in Mooresville and Harrisburg.
