We need to support people who pay taxes and live in this colnmunity." Carter Sykes, a union member from Lewisburg, said he felt obli- gated to help with the protest effort. 'Td much prefer to be sitting by the fire at home, but I know I have to fight. I've lived here since 1966 and would like to stay here--I don't want to have to move to North or South Carolina for a better job." Mr Ward said the group had per- mission from store officials to con- duct the picketing. "We have no ani- mosity against anyone. We're just here to get our message across to the people," he said. One customer the picketers gave a flier to was Gloria Morrison of Frankford, When asked why she drove to White Sulphur Springs to visit the store she responded, "1 hadn't been over here yet and didn't know if their prices were lower or not. I just wanted to see if they were comparable to those of other stores." Food Lion has 650 stores, most in the Southeast, according to Mike Mozingo, communications manager for the 32-year-old food store chain based in Salisbury, North Carolina. "The way we offer lower prices to our customers is to operate more ef- ficiently," he said. "We do have a large sharehoicier in Belgium, the Delhaize Corpora- tion," he said. "It owns 50.1 per cent of our voting shares. But the man- ager of our company is American, and 14,000 of our employees here in the United States own shares in the company." "We do keep a lot of money in the community," he added. 'I/Me pay rent on buildings and shopping cen- ter space. Also, when we come into an area with our lower prices, the competition has to lower their prices, too, and that helps people." Mr Mozingo said his firm added approximately 10,000 jobs in 1989. "We opened 95 new stores in 1989, and we hope to open another 100 this year," he said. Nurses Assoc.
