Abingdon, VA (Tuesday, April 17, 2012) – The Food City Express food and fuel station in Coeburn, Virginia is set to open its doors Wednesday morning, April 18th. Located directly across Highway 58 in front of the Coeburn Food City, the convenience store is a first for the retail grocery chain.
“We’re extremely excited to be opening our first Food City Express,” says Steven C. Smith, Food City president and chief executive officer. “Our loyal customers can visit the Food City Express for top quality fuel and enjoy the added savings provided by their Fuel Bucks.”
Food City shoppers earn 1 Fuel Buck point for each dollar they spend, 10 points for every ten dollars in Food City Exclusive Brand purchases and 50 points for each qualifying new, transferred or refilled prescription. For every 150 points collected, customers receive fifteen cents off per gallon, up to twenty gallons of fuel.
The Food City Express is open seven days a week, 5:30 a.m. until midnight and offers a selection of bread, snacks, soft drinks, coffee, tea, beer, cigarettes and tobacco, in addition to a pizza center, fresh produce, deli products, donuts, nacho cheese/chips, health and beauty care products, auto supplies, Gift Cards, lottery tickets and more.
“While the Food City Express offers all of the items typically stocked by a convenience store, we’ve incorporated a number of valuable new features,” adds Smith. “And we’re especially happy to be able to offer our customers from the Coeburn area the opportunity to conveniently redeem their Food City Fuel Bucks.”
