New Food City To Open Wed.; What To Expect

Shelves are stocked in preparation for the opening of the new Food City store on East Andrew Johnson Highway.

Customers will get their first look at the 49,800-plus square-foot store when the doors open to the public Wednesday morning.

The new Food City, located in the remodeled former Walmart building off U.S. 11E, marks the third Food City location for the Greeneville area.

"We acquired an existing retail space on 11E, which has been completely renovated to accommodate our new state-of-the-art floor plan," said Steven C. Smith, Food City president and chief executive officer, in a news release.

"The new location marks our third in the Greeneville area and will provide a number of exciting new services and features for our loyal customers," Smith added.


The news release states that the location includes a bakery/deli, complete with hot food bar and seat café; Food City Floral Boutique, staffed with a floral designer seven days per week and offering a full assortment of fresh-cut floral arrangements, bouquets, gift items and more;

also, full-service seafood and meat departments, stocked with a wide variety of pre-marinated and seasoned oven-ready products "and a complete selection of top-quality meats that are all-natural with no solutions added," including Certified Angus Beef.

In-house meat cutters will hand-cut steaks and fresh meat to order, and there will be a deluxe salad bar, the news release said.

The store also features expanded grocery, frozen food, produce, and health & beauty care departments; and rapid checkout service provided by seven traditional checkout lanes, one express lane and four self-checkouts.


For added convenience, the store offers a Food City Pharmacy, equipped with a drive-thru for greater ease in prescription services.

A Food City Gas N' Go with a large five-pump station is in the front parking lot.

Food City officials said in the news release that the new location also features several award-winning energy saving concepts, ranging from energy-efficient glass cooler doors, parking lot lights and refrigeration systems to motion sensors and LED lighting.

"Our customers will find the same smiling faces, top-quality products and competitive pricing they have come to expect from Food City, housed in a more energy-efficient model," Smith said.

Headquartered in Abingdon, Va., K-VA-T Food Stores operates 105 retail food outlets throughout the tri-state regions of Southeast Kentucky, Southwest Virginia and Northeast Tennessee.
