Tazewell Food City Set to Open
ABINGDON, VA (Monday, March 7, 2011) - Shelves are stocked in preparation for the March 9th opening of the new Food City located at 1410 North Broad Street in Tazewell, TN. The former Old Town Market property has been completely remodeled and expanded to accommodate the new format. Customers will get their first look at the 33,500+ square foot store when the doors open Wednesday morning.
"The area residents have been extremely kind to Food City and we're thrilled to have the opportunity to bring added variety, selection and services to the community through this new location," said Steven C. Smith, Food City president and chief executive officer."
The new store includes a bakery/deli, complete with hot food bar and 28 seat sit-down café; 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 to hand cut steaks and fresh meat to order; expanded grocery, produce and health & beauty care departments.
The former Home Town Pharmacy has been converted to a Food City Pharmacy, equipped with two drive-thru windows. Registered pharmacist Mari-Ruth Morton (Pharm.D.) and her staff will be on hand to meet prescription needs and answer health related questions. Existing Home Town Pharmacy customers will find a seamless transition to the Food City Pharmacy. The unit also features open ceilings and large department signage.
"Enlarging our departments allows us to greatly enhance the variety and selection of items contained within; and the additional square footage will result in greater ease shopping the store," stated district manager, Brady Parvin. "Our customers can expect to find the same smiling faces, top quality products and competitive pricing they have come to expect from Food City, with increased variety, selection and services," adds Smith.
