Reggie Beamon of Washington named Food Lion’s store manager of the year

SALISBURY, N.C., Feb. 12, 2021 — Reggie Beamon, store manager of the Food Lion located at 851 Washington Square Mall, Washington, N.C. 27889, was named Food Lion’s 2020 Ralph W. Ketner Store Manager of the Year.

Beamon was selected from a group of more than 1,000 store managers serving their neighbors across Food Lion’s 10-state operating area. In recognition of Beamon receiving this honor, Food Lion is donating 20,000 meals to Deeper Life Ministries in Washington, N.C., through the retailer’s hunger relief initiative, Food Lion Feeds.

“I made a commitment a long time ago that no matter what role I have, customers would get the very best I have to offer,” said Beamon. “I couldn’t have received this honor without wonderful people supporting me, and I can’t thank them enough.”

Beamon began his grocery career more than 25 years ago as a bagger, working his way up through multiple positions in the store. In addition to delivering a consistently clean, fresh, in-stock, and well-run grocery store every day, Beamon is committed to serving his Washington neighbors outside of the store as well. During last year’s unprecedented time, he partnered with Eagle’s Wings, a local feeding agency, to feed more neighbors in need.
