Shelves are stocked in preparation for the much anticipated November 7th opening of the new Mission Ridge Food City. The 38,100+ square foot supermarket, located at 820 Mission Ridge Road serves as a replacement for the former location, which closed earlier this year.
“The Mission Ridge area residents have certainly been supportive of our company and we’re excited to have the opportunity to provide them with a new, larger, much improved Food City to replace the former outdated facility,” says Steven C. Smith, Food City president and chief executive officer.
The new location includes an in-store bakery/deli, complete with a hot food bar, expanded café and seating area. Full service meat and seafood departments offer pre-marinated and seasoned oven ready products, plus a complete selection of top quality meats that are all-natural with no solutions added, including Certified Angus Beef. In-house meat cutters hand cut steaks and fresh meat to order. Expanded grocery, frozen food and produce departments go well beyond the normal fare with a huge selection of gourmet, international and specialty items. Rapid checkout service is provided by five traditional check-out lanes and four self-check-outs. For added convenience, the store also offers a Food City Pharmacy, equipped with a drive-thru for greater ease in prescription services and a Food City Gas N’ Go, featuring a three pump station, including diesel fuel. The Mission Ridge Food City also boasts several award winning energy saving concepts, ranging from energy efficient glass cooler doors, parking lot lights and refrigeration systems to motion sensors and 100% LED lighting, as well as an open rafter ceiling design.
“I’m confident our customers are going to be extremely pleased with their new, much improved Food City and will agree that it was well worth the wait,” says store manager, Cade Allison.
The new store also offers the added convenience of Food City Home Delivery (powered by Instacart). To take advantage of this great, new time saving initiative, simply visit their website at foodcitydelivers.com or download the Instacart App.
