Dalton Food City Set to Open

Abingdon, VA Monday, Jan 21, 2019.

Shelves are stocked in preparation for the much anticipated January 23rd opening of the new Dalton Food City.  The 48,600+ square foot supermarket is located on West Walnut Avenue and will serve as the area’s second location.   

“The Dalton area residents have certainly been supportive of our company and we’re extremely excited to provide our loyal customers with a new, state-of-the-art Food City,” says Steven C. Smith, Food City president and chief executive officer. 

The location includes an in-store bakery/deli, complete with a hot food bar, large café seating area, pizzeria and deluxe fresh food bar, featuring a wide variety of soup, wings, salad and fruit selections.  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 and fresh sushi.  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.  The Food City Floral Boutique is staffed with a designer seven days per week, offering a full assortment of fresh-cut floral arrangements, bouquets, gift items and more.  Rapid checkout service is provided by seven traditional check-out lanes and four self-check-outs. 

For added convenience, the store also includes a Food City Pharmacy offering a full range of services and 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.

“Our customers will find the same exceptional customer service, top quality products and competitive pricing they have come to expect from Food City, housed in a more energy efficient model, along with some exciting new features and conveniences,” says Smith.

The new store will also offer the added convenience of GoCart curbside pick-up.  Customers can select their purchases on-line at foodcity.com and their order will be filled by a professional shopper and loaded into their vehicle when they arrive at the store.  Payment can be made on-line or by credit or debit card at the time of pick-up.
