Lowes Foods, which is celebrating its 60th birthday this year, has recently renovated several of its stores in the Winston-Salem area, including some grocery shopping innovations that are perfect for seniors.

Unknown-1 Unknown-3In addition to store renovations, Lowes Foods also has introduced two new vintage trucks that you may see around town. If you spot one of the trucks parked at Lowes Foods, be sure to ask a friend to snap a photo of you standing beside one of the beautifully restored trucks.

Seniors particularly like the produce area of the newly renovated stores, which offers a new feature called Pick & Prep. Shoppers can select fruits or vegetables and Lowes Foods’ Pick & Prep hosts use their knife skills to chop, slice, or julienne them. For seniors who frequently live alone or as a couple, Pick & Prep allows you to get small amounts of fresh produce and avoid waste. For example, if you need a half cup of celery, Pick & Prep will prepare a half cup portion.

There’s no better family time than gathering around the table. Lowes Foods features the Community Table at its newly renovated stores, where seniors and friends of all ages can sample, enjoy and learn how to prepare foods. In addition to recipe sampling, the Community Table also features events such as crafts and even couponing classes. Information about all Community Table events is available at Lowes Foods and online at

Another popular feature is the Chicken Kitchen at Lowes Foods. The Chicken Kitchen features all things chicken, including rotisserie chickens, Southern fried chicken, wings sauced to order and more. When freshly cooked chickens come out of Lowes Foods’ rotisserie oven, the giant chicken chandelier alerts shoppers by playing a special tune as Lowes Foods hosts emerge from the Chicken Kitchen for a performance of—you guessed it—the Chicken Dance. If you enjoy dancing, join in the fun!
Lowes Foods also offers recipes to seniors and others to help make the most of their Chicken Kitchen purchases. For example, you may only consume half a rotisserie chicken at dinner. Lowes Foods has recipes available to use the other half of the chicken in a variety of dishes so that you get two great meals from a single purchase!

Another highlight of the new Lowes Foods is SausageWorks, where the kid in all of us can press buttons and turn knobs in a mock sausage factory. Shoppers also enjoy interacting with the Lowes Foods’ Sausage Professor, who has created more than 20 unique flavors of sausage, including cheeseburger and sweet tea varieties. Seniors particularly like the option of having the fresh sausages prepared for take-home and ready to eat. No need to cook tonight!

Seniors will appreciate the local focus that Lowes Foods is emphasizing inside its newly renovated stores, especially more local products and produce, local recipes and even local décor.
